The Beauty of Leopards, Skies and Birds By Day & Night


Jeremy Luski shared the following images he took when photographing wildlife, nature and stunning skies and landscape in South Africa.

Two of the Majingilane males looking very regal while looking on as a herd of impala pass by, not a snack worth the energy for them!



Not an easy picture to achieve as the light from the sky can often create a silhouette and the colours of the bird do not come out. For a shot like this I would recommend spot metering and to expose for the bird. European rollers often don’t sit still long enough to get a picture, making this a image a spectacular achievement.


The Makhotini Male leopard relaxing in the low veld heat, decided to lift his head for a quick picture before collapsing back onto the ground.


Today seems to be a day of alliteration and here you can See the Sun Setting over the Sand river.


The green in the eyes is accentuated with with green grass growing into front of the leopards face.


Two Grey Louries (also known as grey go-away birds) perched on a twig looking out for anything that might be of danger to them


Stopping for a short break and drink before carrying on with a territorial stroll.


Woodlands Kingfisher is a migrant bird and they movw into the equatorial zone in the dry season. It is a wonderful sign of summer when the well known call is heard in the early days of summer.


The sunset colours at this time of year are truly spectacular and the landscape of this rocky outcrop has been photographed beautifully by Jeremy.


The ‘rule’ of not cutting off the tail seems to be a recurring theme amongst the blogs these days and here is a perfect example of how crucial it can be to creating a beautiful image.
