The Week in Pics : Let There be Light..Footed Cats

A new week has breezed past our well-worn Week in Pictures path. I feel that we weren’t given much warning that yet another Tuesday was fast approaching.  The past week, we’ve been fumbling around in the dark, thanks to a few government-issued power cuts. Unfortunately, our provider (Eskom) hasn’t realised that we’re not big cat…

Getting up Close with Our Photographers : We Chat Macro!

Using your purpose-built macro lens to capture minute detail on your chosen subject, is a rather absorbing activity. The results of macro photography can be captivating, and the final product introduces the viewer to abstract and exquisite detail not capable of being seen with the human eye.

The Week in Pictures : A Feast for Your Eyes

We’ve been a bit delayed with our launch of this week’s “Week in Pictures”, but we’re sure our photographer’s mesmerising images will more than make up for our tardiness. Yet again we’ve enjoyed a veritable feast of sightings. From leopard kills to herbivores gorging on greens, and lion cubs practicing their take-down techniques; we’ve witnessed…

The Week in Pictures : Hello Kitty

Last week we enjoyed an array of sightings, and there were no dominant species that stole the show. Hints of cats, overt displays from playful elephants, and a flurry of plains game provided a unique mix of highlights for last week’s “Week in Pictures”. This week our common denominator is…Cats. The creeping cats decided that…
