Our family has a cottage in the Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba. The Cottage Owners Association has an annual photography competition that has 4 categories - nature, scenic, action and youth (for those under 18). I have entered every year since we've had the cottage (4 years now) and while I have had one 2nd place, one 3rd place and a year I didn't win at all - this year I won 1st place in the nature category and this is the shot that won:



It was taken at the end of our dock. Our resident beaver was heading back to the shore when I managed to catch a photograph of it.
A worthy winner. Lovely image.

Tsessebe horns have a different curvature, more backward than out to the sides as on a hartebeest. I stick by the identification I posted.
Here's a lioness - definitely neither a leopard nor a cheetah (he types with thinly veiled sarcasm)

Today's wildlife. Xpost.

First is using DA* 300mm, Pentax KQ adapter, and Q7. Approximate 35mm AOV is 1380mm. Not cropped.

Second uses the DA* 300mm, 1.4x AF adapter, & K-1. Original crop is 13MP. Last night's SDM to screwdrive
conversion was obviously successful! Used lens about a dozen times before it failed a couple months OOW.

Not sure if this lion(ess) is expecting or just very well-fed. Her languid pose suggests a very full tummy.

crowned cranes - probably the easiest and most frequently photographed African crane, popular in zoos, and also very handsome.
