    Tobie4x4 you clearly spend way too much time behind that camera of yours Excellent image of the African Skimmers. I spent a couple of hours on the Okavango one year, also a photo safari trying to catch these guys. Managed one but without the classic open bill. That's a very powerful looking hippo!

    Yip the troop of baboons were grazing on the bank of the river when one grumpy male (no were are not all) started picking a fight with a lot of smaller males. During this interaction the seeds the one guy was feeding on got “in the way”

    Some more to keep the thread going

    In the first image check the crocodile feeding under the skin of the dead hippo. There were probably 30 - 40 large crocodiles feeding and resting around the carcass. A croc can not bite but has to grab and roll to tear the meat off.

    Breathtaking! exactly the sort of photos that inspire one to go and see these wonderful parks!
    I was about to write something positive on the mana pools ones (which capture some great personalities!), then saw these ones that are just stunning! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Nambro, I use various lenses. I think these were mostly taken with either Nikon D4 or D810 with Nikon 70-200mm f2.8, Nikon 400mm f2.8 or Nikon 600mm f4 and converters. The Skimmers probably shorter lens (easier to follow) and the more static subjects 600mm
