This is my first time posting photos to this site so I hope this works and you enjoy them. In August I went on safari in three private reserves outside of Kruger National Park - Kapama, Timbavati and the Sabi Sands. Here are a few of my photos:

Thanks everyone for the kind words. The bird is a Grey-Headed Bush Shrike and the snake is a venomous vine snake. It was pretty incredible watching them square off in the road. Our tracker and guide were even more excited. The bird won. First it pecked the snake's eyes to blind it and then it killed the snake and eventually had breakfast.

I used my 50D and 100-400L the vast majority of the time and I think for all of the shots above.
