Photos by @TimLaman. Lions vs. Buffalo - Part 1 – Advantage Lions. In one incredible day on safari in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, we witnessed several hunts and attempted hunts between lions and buffalo. This attack began with two lionesses. The first grabbed the buffalo by the neck while the second tried to attack from behind. It seemed to be a stalemate for six minutes. Then reinforcements showed up in the form of the two males and other females from the pride. I captured the second image when the first male to arrive leapt onto the buffalo’s back. It didn’t take long after that for the buffalo to fall. Lions have to eat….. In my next post, you will see Lions vs. Buffalo – Part II – Advantage Buffalo. At times these scenes were not pleasant to watch, I will admit. Nature can be harsh. But it was real, and it was amazing to witness the cycle of life in a place that is still wild. We need places like that on earth, and it is good for us to visit them. As Tennyson wrote, on this day, we truly witnessed “Nature red in tooth and claw”.

Photos by @TimLaman. More amazing bird diversity from my recent trip to Tanzania: Swipe to see 1) Jacana with its long walks on aquatic plants. 2) Egret caught a frog and flew up to a tree to eat it. 3) Ostrich female (in front) and male. 4) Yellow-billed Stork pair working on a nest. .

Photos by @TimLaman. Fun with motion blur in Tanzania last week. Giraffes running (1/4sec), lioness on the hunt (1/8sec), black-backed jackel (1/15sec), and zebras (1/15sec). Using a slow shutter speeds in this range from 1/15sec to 1/4sec and panning with the moving animal adds a creative touch and conveys motion in a still image. . And bye the way, thanks so much to all of you for your interest and support as I hit the surprising landmark of 1 Million followers. To celebrate, I’m planning a special print sale of my post popular Instagram images so stay tuned here, and thanks again. .

Photos by @TimLaman. Greater Bird-of-Paradise male shakes and poses on his display perch in the Aru Islands. Sharing this as we continue to celebrate the milestone declaration of West Papua’s Conservation Province, where this species is one of 16 Birds-of-Paradise. Swipe to see more frames and the blind I shot these images from, which was constructed in the traditional Aru style out of palm leaves on a pole platform by local hunters who helped me construct it up in the canopy (without any ropes – they just free climbed!). It worked very well! @BirdsofParadiseProject .
