The Big Five

Lilly and I spent most of the month of June this year on a voyage across East Africa. We had an awesome time, and when we got to Kenya I had the opportunity to realise one of my daily illustrations from a year or so ago, by shooting the Big Five Game (With my Nikon!).

#1: Cape Buffalo
#1: Cape BuffaloWhat a filthy beast!

#2: Rhino
#2: Rhino (and friend)I particularly liked how an egret seemed to befriend this rhino

#3: Lion(ess)
#3: Lion(ess)We saw fully-maned lions and cubs too, but I like this photo the best!

#4: Elephant
#4: Elephant
The big one for us! Elephants are such wonderful creatures

#5: Leopard
#5: Leopard
I don’t know how our guides spotted this chap in the tree, but there he is, showing everyone how to flop!

If you liked these pics there are plenty more where they came from… We also got to meet Gorillas in the mountains and all kinds of other brilliant beings on the trip. You can check out a gallery of some more of my photos on Flickr here!
