Sometimes things happen that makes you gasp; events based on astonishing statistics that bear constant review. One client, 140 nights, nine safaris, in under three years, one leopard kill. One side, 18 overs, 10 wickets, 60 runs.
Kyriakos Kaziras is someone who is not afraid (as the figures confirm) of putting in a long innings. The ashes have cooled as he leaves early with Patrick crossing the plains, the grass no longer a baggy green, more a burnished willow.
Whilst Kiki may be one of Bush Camp’s favourite sons, Fig is certainly her favourite daughter and with two tiny cubs to support she will change her hunting habits from nightwatchman to all-rounder. Late in the afternoon session, a lone impala strode past her, oblivious to the danger like an Aussie opener facing a swinging ball. With much patience and skill and minimum economy (he is Greek after all) he captured this remarkable grab.
Leopard hunts will always have broad appeal, but to photograph such a power play is barmy, utterly beyond me, much like day one at Trent Bridge …. it’s all Greek to me.
