South African safari wildlife

I've previously posted some birds and big cats from my South Africa trip to Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand Reserve. Here are a few shots of various other wildlife. All taken with D300 or D300s, with the 70-200VR and the 200-400VR. All handheld (or on beanbag) from vehicle, except for the chameleon which was handheld on foot. Exif is embedded in each for those that care

When this is coming straight at your car--with no place to back up--its a little unnerving! By the way, this is one time that video was handy in the D300s...I took a few seconds of video of him coming at us, nothing for "publication" but it sure preserves the memory in a very immediate way!

these ellies were a bit smaller

We found this Spotted Hyena on a buffalo carcass.

Giraffe staring us down

Stare down..

and here's a lion I didn't post before

Not everything cool is a mammal..
