  1. Ohhh, Jeremie, theses all sound wonderful, can't wait to read more about these areas and see the pics. Hurry up, please :-)
  2. Amazing trip and sightings! I love them all, but if I *** had to *** pick a favorite, that would probably be the leopard. What an elegant, beautiful animal! Brings back memories as the ones we saw in South Africa. Keep them coming!
  3. I finally got to read! Great trip with some amazing photographs that brought back fond memories. So sorry about your mom...I'm sure she was with you somehow on this trip. I relived all the excitement of finding and seeing a new animal or bird, you have a gift of telling the story. Our time at Rancho was nowhere as good as yours because of too much rain. We got to see the hummers, but a lot of other birds were not too active. Just a glimpse once of the snowcap, but luckily we got to see the quetzals at Savegre :-) Thanks for the memories!
  4. Good point, thanks. We might keep it to 2 trips...because, that's a good reason for a return trip to Africa
  5. Great start of what looks like an amazing trip. Abundance of wild life? Yay...I love that! I was wondering if a migration (Kenya/Tanzania) and gorillas (Uganda/Rwanda) trip can be done in one shot of about 3 weeks, or we would need two separate trips for it. What do you think?
  6. Another vote for Lightroom. I use it and I'm very happy with the results. It's easy to use, and you'll keep learning and discover new features all the time as you get better and more comfortable with it.
  7. You must be so happy! I know I would be devastated to lose such pictures...glad it worked out well in the end, that jaguar is a beauty.
  8. Ohhhh, YES! Me too...would go back anytime. And it looks you were lucky and had wonderful weather. We were there in August too, a couple years ago, and had rain and high winds for 5 days in a row. No Table Mountain, no sharks boat, so you see, we absolutely need to go back! Can't wait to read all about your trip, the first set of photos is great, with 2 big favorites: the landing view + the tea with the view. Looks like there was more than just tea there
  9. Keep it coming, looks great already!
  10. @xelas Fantastic report, photos and stories, thank you! I'm almost more excited about your next trip than mine. Almost Where are you going next?
  11. Have a great trip, can't wait to read all about it and see pics!
  12. I have to agree. Better horn-less than dead, until we humans learn how to just admire them as BBs. And I hope someday we will...
  13. Thanks for the ellie in the grass, @xelas! Can't pick a favorite African animal...well, maybe the leopard, he-he, but because we did not see any cheetah...please post more cheetahs. Maybe we'll get to meet them next time we're in Africa
  14. Beautiful cheetah and cubs!!!! The grass really works well in this case, and Zvezda did a great job. Don't listen to anyone who complains about giraffes, keep posting them.
