Some more of the wildebeest migration with a few zebras thrown in... I love the contrast of the 2 animals

Maureen these are so nice.
You enable us to see things I and probably many others here will never experience, and I appreciate the effort you and others go to in posting and writing.

I'm curious how much noise these make on the move.
Cattle when they get moving and particularly as they near their destination get roudy and kick up their heels and skip and dance.
It looks like that might be happening in some of yours.
But I can imagine the din they'd make could be quite profound.

Wildebeest make a noise like a bleat & a cry mixed together & rather loud. We guesstimated that we saw around 50,000 wildebeest & several thousand zebras together in this migratory group. And yes, those hooves make quite a lot of noise as well. It is quite something to watch.

Thank you so much for your kind comments, Richard. I am glad you have enjoyed my Africa trip.

Were you able to get any shots of them actually jumping into one crossing the river?

That seems to be the icon scene there at the migration.

Nothing to do? Go back to old photos and reprocess them. It's surprising how much our styles change over the years and how much we may have learned.

A few more from Africa 2013 in the Okvango Delta and Kafue National Park!

The crossing we saw was only across a teeny tributary of the river so there wasn't much water. Our tent camp was right next to the river & you could see the crossing areas down the steep banks but we never saw a crossing there. So you gotta take it where it happens. I was there 8 days & saw this crossing our last morning before flying out that afternoon.
So I felt super lucky to see this at all.

Leopards are the hardest cats to photograph because they shelter in the underbrush. For some weird reason we had a lucky week with leopards as we saw most of them in fairly visible situations each day. Beautiful sunsets!

Africa is always a crap shoot. Sometimes you drive around for a couple of hours and see nothing. Other times animals are everywhere.

The migration is one off those things I think. Right place. Right time.

250mm uncropped. At this point I am wondering if he sees me, the car is 250 yards away and locked. How fast is he? I look down at my lcd to check exposure, I look back up and he is gone. My heart starts pounding, wait, he is right there he just stopped. Now he is moving toward me again. I watched him walk down the hillside the out of view, my heart starts pounding again, so loud I wonder if I would even hear him coming through the brush 20 yards below me.

I like the B&W photos of the elephants.
I’d really like to see a thread here just for black and white wildlife.
