BIG 5 IN A SINGLE PIC?

5 posts in this topic

Hi friends

I was thinking if it is possible to find an african rare camera image with all big 5 animals in it?

I wonder if there is a picture like that, it would certainly be rare!

 

It's even difficult to get 5 or more herbivores (not counting primates) in one picture!

During our second to last trip to Kruger in August 2015 we managed to spot 4 of the big 5 in one view (all minus rhino) but it would have been difficult to get them in one picture (I would have needed a camera that is capable of taking panorama shots). On the very same day I filmed three of them together, though (elephant, buffalo and lion).

If the buffalos come near rhino it will chase them and so the elephants.So the scene with all big 3 herbivores may last for a few seconds only.A crouching lion and watching leopard on a tree may not even move for several minutes.

 

So in a nutshell crouching cats eagerly waiting for attack may be captured easily but all 3 herbivore peacefully eating grass next to each other may not be easily possible.

  • buffalos don't want to be near predators

likewise eles or rhinos with young want to avoid predators

leopards prefer to avoid lions
