    My 1st wildlife outing 2

    Hey all...ok so here's some of he buck that i managed to catch. SOOOOO sorry there are no cats...trust me..im just as dissapointed as you are..travel there for 2 hrs..spend a day driving around reserve,,and 2 hrs back that night...and not one lion, leopard or cheetah...upset me to..but..thats just the way it goes. So please.. as always some C+C...all habitat is natural..its a bit overgrown. My settings were same throughout..Auto ISO, Aperture Priority...nikon D5100 with a 55-200mm kit lens. Hand held. IF i had some action..like lion hunting (YEH RIGHT!!!...ONE DAY ) i wouldve gone to Shutter priority. SO pleeeasse..if someone can suggest better settings..please advise!! Thank you
    This is a female Duiker...Beautiful buck...Reaqlly gorgeous colour...and striking dark eyes...she makes a great model.. i couldnt have asked for a better pose

    This is a male kudu...for some reason..the whole day..there heads were down..look much better when they up..but... i REALLY like the purple,pinks and orange of the trees, even he seems to have that purple kinda colour. It really is very difficult to spot wildlife when they are in there natural habitat... i can only imagine how many rocks couldve been a lion!!!

    These shots work fine. Some have a fairly open aperture when you could probably have got away with F8 approx to give more focus depth. But you don't have any serious problems with what you did use.
