During my stay on the Mara, I got lucky and was able to see a serval cat. These cats are very hard to see usually during the day. They are primarily a nocturnal cat. This cat was hunting in the high grass in the Marsh area of the Mara. Here is a pic of this beauty:

Nice catch! We saw one in the Seronera region of the Serengeti, two weeks ago... pretty far away - Haven't got to the pics from that day yet, but not holding out much hope.

Nice catch; and some other great photos in your gallery.

As a side question; who is your shop run through?

I use the ones provided through Zenfolio. A lot of times when I order pics I will use Bay Shop or other places. I found a place here locally in southern California that I like.

Where you staying? Are you in the Mara or where? The crossings might be ending soon. If you are going to the Mara, a lioness named Spot I believe just had cubs.

Have you ever been there before?

Thanks! wish he had been closer and in brighter environs, but we can't always get the perfect environment on the first time we see them! :D
