I've recently returned from a fairly extended trip to two of Southern Africa's iconic destinations where we did some awesome camera-trapping. I recorded over 50 000 images and, as you can imagine, its taken me a while to work through them all and find those that are worth sharing.
The first part of the trip was in South Africa's largest reserve, the Kruger Park . At almost 2 million hectares in size this is not a reserve that one can easily cover with camera-traps. So we just picked a few good water-holes for the project. I was privileged to spend the time with staff of the Organisation for Tropical Studies (OTS) and their students - mostly from the U.S.
As always at small man-made water holes camera-traps can record some amazing images. Here are just a few of the close-ups that I enjoyed:
