Once in a lifetime photos....Post them here!

A few years ago, we had a hunter in camp on a plains game hunt. He managed to snap this photo while both him and the PH was running away, after getting an unprovoked charge from a Rhino. The last photo was a simple coincidence of snapping the photo while the camera was in motion and facing rearwards.

That is a amazing photo bet they set a new world record for the 100 meter dash.

Mine isn't hunting, but My wife and I got Married at Pride rock on Shelanti Game reserve while on our 2015 Safari and it is my amazing once in a lifetime photo.

After much debate, I uploaded a picture that is of iffy quality and leaves lots of questions. However, it was a very very rare upclose encounter

Point Reyes California on the Pacific coast - the last late afternoon of a weeklong stay. Thousands of birds and probably 1000+ seals acrobatically hunting in clear water. Hard to put into words without being there in the moment.

Probably my favorite - and taken hastily with an Iphone. Herd returning in failing light in the Limpopo to the death bellow of one of their own. They spent the better part of a half hour hooking him before we could move them along with the vehicle.

And this one of my son just before the wounded bull spun, an arc of blood flying from his mouth, and began a charge in the Zambezi Delta. He had hit him seemingly perfectly with a near frontal on the first shot. Anchored, he would not fall with three more bullets behind the right rear rib. As he turned, he was immediately hit by another .375, a .458, and a .500. I didn't get that picture because I had pitched the camera and was shouldering my own double.

And I have no idea why the photo is so small. :E Shrug:

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen
