Starting from number one there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

Here’s some photos from Kruger,

Blue starling on an aloe plant, these birds love aloe this is one of my favourite photos. Claire

Mother cheetah with 3 cubs. Unfortunately soon after this photo was taken, dad found the cubs abandoned. We think mother had been killed probably by a hyena or lion(their greatest enemies). We took them in and hand reared them, one died soon after probably from stress the other 2 we successfully released back into the wild. Claire

The 2 male cheetah cubs just before release, we had them in a holding enclosure prior to release along with another female cheetah you can see in the back. During this time they have very minimal contact with humans and enough natural game gets through for them to learn to hunt. Claire

These were taken by my dad early one morning shortly after the 2 brothers had been realeased, last time he saw them. On a note female cheetahs are loners, male siblings stay together for life. Claire

A brown hooded Kingfisher. Quite different from Kingfishers here in England but still noticealbly a kingfisher. Claire
