    WOW!! this is one outstanding shot!!! How close are your to these animals when you photo them?

  • Thanks vics, I have a zoom 70-300mm that I use when shooting animals in the park, also depends how close you can get as you are not permitted to leave the roads or get out of your car when in The Kruger National Park, much to dangerous! Take care dear friend xxx
