I really with this image was sharper. I was fiddling with the Sigma 120-300mm lens I had and still wasn't comfortable with the lens. I ended up manual focusing all the images you'll see here because of it. This was an awesome scene, but gone before I got a chance to properly photograph it. I only with wildlife would stay still a bit more.
The week I spent in South Africa’s most famous attraction, Kruger National Park, was incredible. But it was also very intensive. I rented a little Fiat 500 and spent every day scouring the park. Not only did I cover the popular areas in the south of Kruger National Park, but I also covered almost the entire north.
I was up at 5:30 am each morning to be out when the gates opened, and other than a lunch break, I was out until the sun was down again. I was intent on getting my money’s worth, and I did.
Of course, finding my leopard was the biggest victory on the trip. But my sightings in Kruger National Park were extensive, and I think the thing that as most impressive about Kruger was the vast diversity of landscapes, habitats and sightings. I saw everything from cheetah to guinea fowl and everything else in between. I spotted lions hunting, elephants charging tourists, and even some elusive birds like the southern collard ground hornbills.
Anyways, I’ve selected the favourite photo of my favourite animals throughout Kruger National Park. There is also a caption explaining what your seeing and how many of that species I saw in Kruger.
