Matthew’s Description:

After waking up to lions roaring, we set out tracking them. We eventually found a coalition of 2 dominant male lions. Shortly after finding them they started to hunt a herd of Zebra in the long grass. To get the shot i was looking for I did a big loop and waited for them to walk into picture with the perfect morning light and wind in their manes!

Peet’s description

This photo was taken from a boat on a safari in the Okavango Panhandle close to Shakawe in Botswana.

Due to the 500mm lens and added crop factor of the camera I could only focus on a section of the fish eagle.

[Editors Note: Getting the focus on the Eagle’s eye through the wing had to be extremely challenging. Nine times out of ten the camera will focus on the wing and spoil the shot]

Johan’s description

This photo was taken at 18h30, 10 December just south of Nossop. These two had been at it since 12h00 that afternoon – we left for camp for an hour two and came back at around 16h00. The loving couple had just left the waterhole and we found them on the road. My challenge was to get a shot from the front, so I had to go park a long distance in front of them. Other cars in the background spoiled the background but eventually we got a good shot and I managed to capture the expression on their faces.
