Congratulations on both 1st & 2nd places. I particularly liked the 1st place.

I am personally appalled by this sort of behaviour from game drive jockeys.

I am surprised that the buffalo got away as it was obviously almost totally hemmed in by vehicles and therefore the rest of the herd could not come to its assistance as would often be the case.

I have seen similar behaviour by game drive jockeys that most likely prevented a leopard from making a kill and also resulted in 2 of the vehicles having a minor collision.

All done in the hope of getting a good gratuity from the clients.

Polite correction. This is a Wildebeest.

alfaflash: That's such BS answer. You're supposed to be managing this challenge. Give us some guidance ConanFuji.

Why? Cars of yesteryear and modern with retro design both fit the theme. How they are presented will (or should) determine the voting. My interpretation of the rules.

In reply to:

RuthC: Kokeen, the title of your challenge states 'Hidden Birds', yet in the theme you want us to capture shots of birds 'which are not in flight, HIDING or CAMOUFLAGED in their surroundings.' I'm confused!

My interpretation of the theme is birds that are hidden or camouflaged but not in flight as per additional rules 2.

Congratulations. A very worthy winner!

I am also confused by additional rule 2 "•Photo must have at least one kid in the frame in full". Does this mean that only head & shoulders for example is unacceptable?

In reply to:

l_objectif: I am a little confused by some entries! Shout there be a kid (child) or "grown-ups" work also?

My interpretation of the rules is that there must be at least 1 kid but if there are also adults it would be OK (or animals for that matter).
