Images from Kruger Park (not for the prudish)
Lens: Tamron 70-300 Camera: K10D Photo Location: Kruger Park

Visited Kruger Park in South Africa earlier this year. Managed to see all of the "Big 5" and a lot more. It is a fantastic place to visit, it is about 300 miles long and has one of the highest concentration of wildlife in the world - highly recommended.

Would like to share 2 images. The first one is when a lion couple decided to pass in from of our car and stop in the middle of the road to do "their thing". Photos taken through the front window, but still turned out quite OK.

We were also lucky to see a leopard in a tree quite close to the road. Taken mid day so the sun was quite harsh, but a few ones turned out decent.

Best regards,

LOL, exhibitionist lions. Why do it in privacy off the side of the road when you can do it right there in the middle of it.

I hate it when lions do this. Seriously, a great capture.

The first reminds me of a certain Beatles song

Thanks Jer.
It felt a little akward. Did not know if I should look away or pick up the camera, but the opportunity was too good to miss.

Best regards,
