Through the dense jungle canopy, we were lucky enough to watch two of T19’s cubs. Coming onto a year old, these cubs have been a joy to photograph as they become more and more confident by the day. Photograph by Katya Ignatiev.

Paused in time. T41’s Male Cub caught yawning. What I particularly love about this photo is the drop of water suspended in the middle of his gaping mouth. Photograph by Katya Ignatiev.


A rare sighting of a couple of male jungle bush quail sitting out in the open. These tiny birds measuring only 17cm long and regularly hide out in thick grassy runs. Photograph by Katya Ignatiev.
