#2 is nice but I like #4 the best. There is something about the colors and way they pop out of the grass. Well done

Wow Tim. Gorgeous shots. I love the zebras most, especially the last one.
Did you have 2 500s with you or were you switching between your two bodies? Just curious how you decided which body to mount up each day or if you were switching a lot in the field.

Thanks for sharing, looking forward to more from your trip.

Geoff


Thanks a bunch Geoff!

I used one 500 and switched it between bodies as needed. How did I decide? 1DX; superior in low light, faster burst.. that means early morning, late afternoon and anything moving made that the preferred body. 1dmk4 is no slouch, just not as performant as the 1dx so it was usually the automatic second body. So if I saw fit to shoot with 500mm, that was usually mounted on the 1dx and 70-300 on mk4. If the 70-300 was the go to it would be mounted on the 1dx and the 500 on the mk4. I usually had the 2 rigs sitting on the seat next to me for easy access. Of course now and again it was whatever I could grab at the moment!

Ok, so those last 4 (and the last particularly) are beauties but the first had such an incredible degree of difficulty that that wins by a mile. One of the most elusive creatures to see let alone photograph on safari and you got not one but two in perfect focus....I have 2 in focus but I needed two shots to do it ....seriously, no light and at least 50 yards away...way to go bro!
Eric



You have that right Eric, the badgers as low IQ as they are are also about as good they get and I am quite lucky and proud to have them. Thanks for the understanding words.

Super set Tim, but wow, that last shot is special. Really like the light, the bg, the comp, the colors etc. It all works together well. Honey badgers are pretty cool too.


Thanks Ken, I appreciate it!

Sweeeeeeeet!
The honey badgers are a great find, & seeing this shot just makes me smile. The tight cheetah is beautiful & seeing the exif, i think anyone should not worry if they pair a 500mm f4 mkii w/ a 2x... Just wow for sharpness & detail. Finally, the light in ths zebra herd & their patterns are just perfect.

A pleasure to view.
Bruce


Thank you Bruce!! Yes the 500 2x combo works quite well in sufficient light and with stationary or slower subjects

Honey Badgers!!! I've read about this species and seen a drawing or two, but, man, what an opportunity.

One of the fascinating things about this species (besides their legendary ferocity) is the proposed relationship with cheetah cubs, which bear something of a resemblance to honey badgers, especially if an image is blurry, taken during a dust storm, and heavily cropped.

Fortunately, that is not the case here, Tim! I think the quality is OK, but what really caught my eye is the mood...somehow you managed to make these guys look cute, almost like, well, like cheetah cubs!

Oh, those zebras aren't too shabby
...Show more

Indeed Greg the illusive Honey Badgers!! I was sooooo stoked to be able to see these guys no less photograph them!!! Wow, thanks for the link, that is beyond interesting!

Thanks Greg!

More gorgeous images TIm. I think I'm going to have to go to the thesaurus to find more descriptive adjectives to use since you have so many more images to come ! The zebra shots are my favs here - simply wonderful.


That's too kind of you to say, thanks so much!!

Congrats on the Honey Badgers, Tim! Interesting creatures.
Very nice portrait shots. The cat looks more relaxed in the first one, but I like the inquisitive look of the second one.
Interesting diffuse lighting in the last two. It give a special character to the images>
A job well done!
Socrate


Thank you Socrate for the good words. So glad you like them my friend

Congrats on the Honey Badgers at the Honey Hole, their markings are fascinating.
#3 Cheetah is my favorite of the two, gotta love that light in those beautiful eyes.
Believe it or not, the standout images for me in this set are both Zebra pics... fantastic compositions on both Tim, I love them both just as presented.
Top notch stuff buddy.

Kirk


Thanks for the good words Kirk. Believe it or not the dual zebra is one my favorites from the trip
