Picture of the Week (POTW) # 467 - Period covering 7 August 2017 - 20 Aug 2017
Posted By: Aslyfox, 08-13-2017, 03:19 AM

Welcome to another round of Picture of the Week (POTW). [ I thank noelcmn for asking me to host ]

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away

Please:

• consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

• identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax, Ricoh or Samsung camera, film or digital

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (PM). If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one. If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM.

Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: , 390 smf 391 smf 392 smf 393 smf 394 smf 395 smf 396 smf 397 smf 398 smf 399 smf 400 smf 401 smf 402 smf 403 smf 404 smf 405 smf 406 smf,407 ramseybuckeye, 408 ramseybuckeye, 409 stubyles, 410 stubyles, 411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson 428-451 smf 452, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Alsyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire, 457 noelcmn, 458 noelcmn, 459 noelcmn, 460 noelcmn, 461 noelcmn, 462 noelcmn, 463 noelcmn, 464 noelcmn, 465 noelcmn, 466 noelcmn

Especially for you Allen- I was at Pilansberg National Park on Wednesday (a public holiday here) and blessed to see one attempt by a Cheetah to catch an Impala, one of a lion attempting to catch a Waterbuck, and the 2nd successful attempt by the Cheetah.
The first failed attempt-The impala jumped into the water and escaped




And the Lion looking wistfully at the waterbuck that got away - also jumped into the water and escaped,


The waterbuck swimming to the far bank


And the 2nd successful attempt by the Cheetah.





Have a few more of the action but I am unable to access my external hard drive for some reason.

always glad to see cheetahs

and to see a cheetah on the successful hunt. very nice

we did see a lioness ambush a Thomson's gazelle in the Serengeti National Park and two sets of cheetahs [ including a mother and young cub ] feeding on their kills but never saw the actual chase/take down in either case

Backyard birding. Taken with a newly acquired Promura M42 200mm on my K5. By the time I'd started training my fingers to find the preset ring as I looked through the viewfinder the Kookaburra I'd seen from the kitchen window had flown, but these bird of paradise flowers hadn't. I do like the colour
