Congratulations to Tim Kuhn for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 9 votes - View Previous Winners


As Eric has already hinted at with his excellent post of a Leopard eating a Zebra, he and I just finished a photo safari in Botswana. Eric has been prodding me to go for a while now and last year he finally got me to pull the trigger. I figured if I owas ever going to do a trip like this I might as well go with an expert and Eric surely fits the bill there! He picked 3 camps for us to stay at, each with their own different flavor of experience and boy did he ever pick well. I cannot describe what a wonderful time I had, I'm still saying wow to myself while I relive the trip organizing the massive amount of shots I got. We shot from pre-sunrise to post-sunset everyday, sleeping very little and grinning like little kids the whole time.

Eric you are one hell of a guy, thank you my friend.

Here is a shot of Painted Dogs in the midst of a hunt that culminated in the kill of a female kudu.

Wow! Where was I when this was going on...oh yeah trying to decided if I was a photographer or a filmmaker . Yup we had a great time and I think we have enough material for at least a year or more....
I can't wait to see your stuff, it will probably force me to go back sooner than later. Thanks for the shout out my friend. Welcome home!

Thought I was going to be first, Tim. I have been back browsing the forum the past couple of weeks and noted your absence. I figured you might be off on your safari. Great first pic, I look forward to more. Did you take your 800?

Tim,
The Peanut Gallery thinks this is a swell picture.
"Here, Fido" may not work with these amazing canines .
Endangered they are, I understand. All the better that you and Eric had the chance to watch and photograph the pack.
Congrats and mind-numbing jealosy- at the same time .
