Blotched Genet
beside the big five there are so many interesting animals in the savannah and quite a few are difficult to spot.
This Blotched Genet lived within the Fig Tree Camp and was fed every evening on this feeding table with a few pieces of chicken meat and was thus easy to observe but still difficult to photograph as it stayed always just for a few seconds on the table. Only after all the meat was eaten a sayed a bit longer to be sure there was nothing left.

Ciao Tom, great capture of lovely creature, I never see before, thanks, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Tom
Interesting species and beautiful photo with wonderful colours and good sharpness.

This gorgeous creature has very curious look Tom! And probably its character reflect that look! Seems like the little Genet jumped in front of you on your camping table and you have been not entirely prepared with that long lens attached to your camera!
