Thanks GW, I get it, will also center image.
sniktawk - agree would be better with total reflection. We were in vehicle so could not change position much. And would have been great if he had bent down to drink, but didn't. And yes, beautiful rocks and water around him. I'll tell ya, I could repeat every day, every second of that safari, our very first, only now would have much better cameras. It would be great, probably the most good photo subjects/scenes of all our safaris, that first one. And not just because it was the first, I line up all photos from all and that safari has the most great "photo opportunities" of all. Maybe next time :)

regards - tom

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

Excellent indeed.

Although somewhat obscured by the brush, I'll add the shots from my recent safari because of just how special the sighting was.

Not going to win any prizes, circumstances dictated that these two pictures were taken handheld after sunset using ISO 6400 and no flash. The originals are full of chroma noise. They are pictures of the tame leopard "Induna" on Ongos Game Farm, Namibia.

Induna in a tree. We had been waiting for him half a kilometre away while we drank sundowners but he didn't feel like walking all that way so he was waiting in a tree near the entrance to his enclosure.

To encourage him to come down, Martin climbs Induna's tree and gets a traditional leopard greeting

Evening in Etosha. Was just driving back to the camp (Halali) before sunset, and saw this leopard lying by the side of the road. Pulled over and it didnt move, so took a few pics then moved closer - was parked opposite this magnificent leopard just a few metres away - a fantastic view. Just a shame I couldnt have stayed longer but the sunset deadline was rapidly approaching.

Taken in the Kruger National Park with a compact Fuji S8000
Compared with previous photos these fade into insignifacance - but special to me as there were just 2 of us human alone all the time at each of these seperate sightings in April & August .

I have walked more than 1000km in the "big 5" wilderness .

I think thats the important part - nice quality photos are good to have, but its the experience of seeing the leopard (or whichever animal you're watching) thats important. The photos are really just a reminder of great memories.
