    One morning we came upon this guy as he was chowing down on a wildebeest head. We were close enough to hear the crunching.

    We watched him eat the tongue, then the nose, then the cheeks...

    Thanks, I use Nikon pro level digital cameras. I think that was taken with a D1X.

    I just re-did my photo website. There are more African pictures up there.

    hey len,

    it's been a while since you posted any new images up here? are you still shooting much.

    I finally purchased a camera. Canon 40d. just ordered a manfrotto tripod and ballhead, so can't wait to use those. Got up at 5 this morning to get some good light at the river for some shots. learning a lot!

    anyway, just checking in, and once I get some decent shots I'll post something. also, i've really enjoyed looking through your website.

    later, jon
