Masai Mara Trip October 2007

John and Carole

We had a couple of "southerners" with us. We thoroughly enjoyed their company, sense of humor and drawls, although we had to keep on reminding them who won the war.

Carole showing off her shooting style in the early morning sun with the Canon 70-20mm lens and the Mark II N camera


John's shooting style with the Canon 500 mm lens and the 5D camera


Looks like John lost the drinking game last night


While John was sick to his stomach from the night before Carole was enjoying her breakfast in the Mara


A good nights sleep and John is good to go until the next night's drinking game


Keeping an eye out for anything that moves


Her hard work paid off with these two young lion brothers


We had plenty of time to watch their behavior and set up for our shots


The first brother walked to a waterhole just to our right


And the second followed right behind


Our guide know these lions were going for a drink, so he has us lined up for our shot before they got there.

This gave Dr. P time to set up the camera for John to get a nice shot of them drinking


And here it is


After their drink they walked right past us and John set up for another nice shot


They walked so close they could easily jump into the vehicle. No worries though because Carole is keeping a wary eye on them


With Carole protecting us John got another good one
