Excellent composition and DOF (How did you get the background tree so blurred whilst still being some distance away from the subject?)

I was shooting wide open - F 5.6 at 400mm and the branches in the background were quite far back.

Excellent shot, that Hornbill is certainly photogenic!
Well Done,

Great shot.

How did you enjoy Kruger? We are toying with the idea of going next year...

Did you get any shots of the `big 5` or did you just go for birds?

Odd looking but beautiful creature, magnificent capture *click*

Hi Paul

Kruger is always brilliant - well worth a visit.

We went for the weekend - didn't see very much though. Big 5? Got some nice rhino shots - I'll post one later this week. We saw elephants, but after dark. Buffalo were in thick bush, so no great shots. We saw a leopard, also in quite thick riverine bush, grabbed a couple of shots, but not coffee table book stuff.

Kruger can be frustrating this way - you take pot luck on sightings, and seeing something is one thing - getting good photos quite another!
