Pilanesberg National Park - Picture Gallery 2009
Galleries of pictures taken in Pilanesberg National Park the last 6,5 years

There are about 50 000 pictures, most taken by me. You can pick any random day and see what you could see with me.
They are copyrighted and intellectual property, but are for sale at a very reasonable rate - just mail. Free for educational use.
With the older pics I used a HP 635, then a Canon A70 powershot that just stopped working, and the last just over 2 years a
Canon 350D, with standard, 70-300, 170-500, and 100-400 IS lenses. I just point and shoot on auto....and this is what I get :)
I will state if I crop a pic...

20 Oct 2009, I'm working backwards on this. Should be up shortly...but will do the descriptions later :)
This will differ from the old 2007 galleries, and have 5 or more bigger pics of the day - pages around 1 Mb or less.
Some days are missing, as the pics are on other pc's, but I will consolidate shortly...

March 2018 - As soon as I have time, I will post some in a new format
