There is a thrill to seeing close up a whale swimming with her calf, or a cheetah on the prowl, or a lion simply languidly stretched out across your path, that no photograph can ever convey. Nevertheless, here is a collection of photos of creatures great and small from my recent trip to South Africa. Most were taken in the De Hoop and Kwandwe Reserves.
Cute cats – who’da thought it – I wouldn’t normally click ‘Like’, but they are stunning shots, Kenan 😉 Tom
They’re all great! Thank you!
Thanks, glad you liked them.
I love the tortoise. Can you say why you decided to make that one black and white?
That’s always a judgment as to which might better suit the image. I turn to black and white often where shape or texture matters more than colour.
I particularly liked the one with the giraffe and the green foliage. It has a lot of detail and yet, curiously, it is also like a surrealist painting.
