Flight of the Eagle
.
.
A Tawny eagle soars above the grassy plains with malicious purpose, its massive wingspan buoyed by a warm current of air. It is hunting. Searching the ground below for targets. Superb eyes scan for the slightest of movements. Focused, optical precision can detect even the slightest rustle. And on the ground the raptors presence is felt by all manner of creatures. Even the Thomson Gazelle who are too big to get taken down by an eagle appear weary. Suddenly the eagle banks in their direction. The nervous gazelles look up to see the eagles steely gaze upon them. They scatter like leaves in the wind. They know only too well that Death not only stalks the ground here, but also hunts from a furious sky.

Elephants live in complex social groups and value the concept of family more than most animals .They are known to develop strong, intimate bonds between friends and family members. There have been reports of elephants forming lifelong friendships with each other, and they even mourn the death of their loved ones. .

RIP Lipstick.

It was sad to read that one of the Mara's iconic black manned lions died yesterday. This is an image taken a few months before he passed.

In it, I see the spirit of the warrior and the regal majesty of a king as he sat on the plains, soaking in the golden light, holding domain over everything he surveyed.

He was born free. He lived free. He sired many offspring and they now carry his bloodline into the future. For kings never die, they are reborn in the light of their children.

Jungle roads are full of promise and uncertainty. You travel a well tread path, hoping the forest will revels her secrets. Quietly afraid that you'll be the one to miss out. You realize, dejection and joy are two sides of the same coin -- minted daily on such roads. All those who venture into the wilderness have to accept this tender. You learn quickly, that not all jungle roads lead to Tigers. Perhaps that's what makes the path to finding them so worth it. On some roads, it's glorious even when you fail.

Leopard Posing .
.
.
Any honest wildlife photographer will tell you that the best times to shoot wild animals are early in the morning or late in the evening. Both times gives the best light and are times when animals are most actives. This is especially true with cats. Unfortunately nature doesn't always subscribe to the whims of photographers. But every once in a while you get lucky and all the elements combine to give you a special opportunity. For me, this came on a late afternoon drive when a female leopard came out of hiding and posed for a good 15-20 minutes in the open. She was in fact calling out to her cubs and checking to see the coast was clear of Lions and Hyena. That was a great excuse for all those gathered to capture her in the beautiful golden afternoon light. .
