It suuucks to bite your cheek ;)
I will probby' browse all your wildlife photos 10 times over, spent a couple of safari days in uganda with a fuji x10 but didnt come close to anything like this, could put some blame on the camera limitations but truthfully my lack of experience is the real reason. Seeing stuff like this is pure motivation to learn more.

Thanks for your kind comment. Being on safari is an awesome experience even without a proper camera :)
I hope you get to go soon again!
