Well worth waiting for MAC, thanks for uploading. ST really is becoming a reference for great wildlife photography.

At last MAC is fully functional! Safaritalk is a better place. Now we can finally see the highlights of those five boys (I'm counting you and Hobbs! :P)

Like, like, like.... typed rather than clicked!

Waiting again... for the next time again

Paul mentioned Hobbs, so here's a pic of him at sunset with the Puppies of the Lagoon pack from 2009 (He was filling in at Lagoon as guides were in and out for voting in the Botswana elections that year!)

Female cheetah (Lebala, October 2008)

I read in one of the blogs of the Serengeti Cheetah project that they discovered an old female that was about 14 years in age, so I still hope she is somewhere stuck in the flood zone in Northern Botswana and doing well.
