I'll help Game Warden and get the ball rolling here as well. I'm sure everyone has a lion photo to share.

Too many of my images sit unedited on a hard drive, so I made a New Years resolution to get through around 7,000 keepers by 2014. Though how many I add to the collection could push the date back.

Some I edited the other day - I think I am semi-professional, before any debate begins Posted Image

Paolo,

The photo was taken just before hell broke loose.

Jochen,

Your visit to the Okavango delta was in 2008 if I am not mistaken ;)

Pangolin that's like the scene from "Empire Strikes Back" where Han stuffs Luke into the belly of a Tauntaun...

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.
