Here are a few more shotrs from a recent trip to SA. These were shot on the Madikwe game reserve.

1. Hippo - wondering if I should crop this to put him in the right of the frame?

Wonderful shots Jonathan, nothing quite like the experience of an African safari!

Shot #5: Southern Carmine Bee-Eater.

Shot #6: My guess would be a species of Roller, but the colours are throwing me right off, reason for that is perhaps this one is a juvenile and yet to form full adult colours. There are three species of Rollers native to Southern Africa: The Lilac-Breasted Roller, the European Roller, and the Purple Roller, I reckon #6 is one of the latter two.

Hope to see more and thanks for sharing!

Ashley, I believe you are correct about the bee eater and I am informed from the birds thread that the other is indeed a European Roller.

Good to know and thanks for the confirmation Jonathan. I'll be looking out for more from you, I'm sure you must have captured loads ;^)

Nice shots :) Looks like you got good sightings :)

Only two comments
2. Wild dogs shot, WB seems bit cold (but maybe it is just me ;)).
4. It is not a Black Rhino. This is a White Rhino (square jaw).

Great stots. I have the exact same gear, We are going a year from now on an African safari. If I can get my pictures half as good as yours I'd be happy.
