Thanks to everyone for looking. As for Philippe's observation, the first
couple of safaris one goes to, the temptation is get close and tight, as it
all so exciting being so close to animals in the wild. As you go more
often, you get looser and wider as you get fed up of taking tight portraits
of bored either want something a bit extra like interesting
behaviour, action or environment in the photographs. At least this has been
my experience.
