Thank you for sharing this pictures with us , they all are really wonderful, take care, greetings Enny.
Thank you so much for your comments on my Cabo Beach shot. I have soooo many more but I am trying to be patient:) I have not even looked at all of them yet. Just got home about 8 hours ago.
Congratulations on your 1 million+ galleries. It's a stunning collection, and I like many of the non-exotic photos, too...Rambo's great. It's a great thing you are doing on behalf of wildlife. Kudo's to all you Meintjes!
Sorry, I meant:
Hi Arno and family,
this shot is the only one with me (so far) and a couple of "baby" lions.
Maybe one day I will make it to Africa...
Thank you for your e-mail, Meintjes family. Your galleries are like no others, stunning work. Please keep them coming!!
Take care in that dangerous country you live in.
Again I must say....wowx2 and your shots are just so great. Africa is so beautiful and thank you for taking those shots to show it to us. Keep shooting!
You guys are the best. Bringing images to us that we wish we could take. Keep them coming!
Raymond J Barlow
Hi you 2!! wonderful galleries here to say the least! You are so blessed, great talent, and a great backyard! My dream is to come to your country and fill my lens with the ostounding beauty of the animals of Africa. Kind regards from the 3 of us, thanks for all the visits and kind comments!!
take care., Ray, Daisy and Maria
Amazing photos and gallery. You bring us close to nature and teach us how to appreciate them. Thanks for sharing those great photos.
What a wonderful location for wildlife photography.
Africa has the biggest of the beasts.
Goodluck in the future.
Thanks Arno for visiting my site. I see we have a common interest in wildlife. How I wish I could travel to your location to be able to get more wildlife pictures.
Thanks for your comments on several of the photos in my African animals gallery. You two have an amazing site here ... you must have more wildlife photographs than all the rest of us combined!
All the best,
Thanks a lot for visiting my PAD gallery and for the kind remarks. Your galleries are remarkable !!!!
Thank you so very much for all your wondrful and kind comments and also your vote.
Good afternoon (well it's afternoon here). I'm still making my way through your amazing galleries. Keep the pics coming.
Have you seen my zebra drawing?
Dear Arno & Louise,
I appreciate your very nice comments.
I enjoyed wandering around in your galleries.
Thnks a lot for your worm pictures.
Thanks you! Yaffa
Amazing photos, almost feel like I'm back in africa.
You have some amazing and beautiful pictures, I enjoyed looking at them :)
Thanks for comment on my... duck ;)
Arno & Louise, you have splendid wildlife galleries. Thanks for sharing these beautiful images.
thanks for the comment on my picture .
HI Arno and Louise
I enjoy browsing through your galleries. I beleive you are very close to wildlife and your pictures on that are really amazing. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for commenting on my gallery! I will have to have a look at your latest shots soon.
Thank you for commenting on That Look!
I have change my site naam ....old: www.pbase.com/kudo1111..... new: www.pbase.com/natuur
Thank you for your nice comment on my potd!
Thanks Arno, it is good to be back...
I enjoyed the travel trough your galleries. Thank You for making us discover your beautiful country. Your wildcats pictures are amazing.
Arno, congrats on the new look albums, seem to remember seeing your name in Getaway? You caught some idiot out of his car? Was that you?
Thanks for the kind comment on my poppy-picture today! Always appreciated!!
Yeowza - your fantastic photos always take my breath away!
A&L, Thank you for your comment on the photo of the Clematis I posted today.
A&L ... thanks for having a look at my Sunsets gallery and taking time to comment; I genuinely appreciate your compliment. Cheers.
It's hard to put an adjective (or even several) to accurate depict your pictures. So I will just say what others have said. Good stuff!
I think your pictures are worth more than a thousand words. Keep it up!
Thank you for sharing your amazing galleries! What I like is that you've also taken pictures of injured animals. They may not be pleasant to look at, but they keep things real and demonstrate what a dangerous place Africa can be.
I think your work is an inspiration to many of us. Do keep updating as I will always come back those updates!
WOW Arno! is almost imposible to keep up with you posting! Lol
How are you? I see you are having a blast with all these fascinating animals and photo adventures! You keep on posting, I myself thank you for your hard and outstanding work!
Thank you for your comment on my POTD!
Arnulf M. Elvevold
Your wildlife galleries are so beautiful. Your field work is impressive. Great nature photographing. I'll be back over and over again.
Arno how do you publish link, that works?
http://www.pbase.com/ratluk/zanzibar -this is the link, obviousliy i forgot to attach it earlier. kind regards, Luka
You made me laugh!!!! The thing is nearly dragging on the ground!
Thanks for the comment. I can't get over the color in your galleries.
Your wild life gallaries are amazing, these are a great collection for the lion the king of the jungle.. I salute your work and looking forward to seeing more.
Also if you have time you are welcomed to visit my gallaries.. Thanks..
Thank you for your visit and comment!
Thank you so much for your kind comment. I am trying to do more abstract type shots of my flowers lately and also trying to learn more about my new macro lens. So just getting a little creative with my shots and angles. The Iris is such a beautiful color, could not resist. I thought this one looks a little like a caterpillar crawling into a hole. My imagination. You should see what I think of a sketch of the Iris that I think I am going to put in my abstract gallery. LOL
Thanks for visiting my photos and answering my question on the elephant walking the path. I keep coming back to visit your photos because I am intrigued by your photos AND your lifestyle. Seems kind of dangerous.
This is one of my favorite photos on Pbase. You took it. It's a superb shot.
Hello Arno and Louise
I've been looking at your work over the past week - wonderful images, the passion for your subjects (and life) shows. Thanks for visiting my galleries and the kind comments.
Hello Arno. Thank you for the recent visit to my PAD gallery and for the nice comments. Really appreciate it. Have a wonderful day :-)
Thank you very much agin for your wonderful comments on my butterflies
Thank you so much once again for your very kind comment. You keep producing wonderful images also, very talented
I just took a look at your galleries. WOW! Your work is the real thing!!
after wathching your photos, one dosen't dare to show its own.
lucky you being near these animals, I expect these photos mean a lot of time and a lot of shots...
it's worth it, carry on
Hello ! My english ist very bad ! Your galeries are TOP ! I have the SIGMA 50-500mm. I am happy with this. A nice day - Hans - Austria
Thanks for your continued support, Arno! (And I am amazed you found the one frame I just added to that gallery!)
I enjoy visiting your galleries. Thank you for your visits and comments to my site. I am happy to share this wonderful experience with someone who also enjoys photography.
It was a real pleasure visiting your galleries!
Your animal photos are truly amazing! What a pleasure to see. And thank you for visiting my galleries. Yes, the name Alida is not common, but I am happy it is so loved and unique. I have met very few Alida's in my lifetime!
thank you for visiting my galleries and leaving a comment......
You have a great collection photo`s well done
I couldn't resist but to compliment you on your lovely shots of the Wild Life. Fantastic.
Great Lion galleries you got here ,but wish I was taking the picture so I could blow them up for my wall's to go along with all the Lion's I have in my Casa !!!!! Enjoyed much but I am a Lion in the desert most of the time.
Juan C. Aguero
Greetings I have included his galleries in my favorites, I am interested in very much the topic of the African fauna and I think that his photos show this reality.
I'm so in awe of your beautiful work! I love to come and just browse through your galleries. Almost makes me feel like I'm right there, too. Thank you, also, for taking the time to look at mine and comment. I really appreciate that. :-)
Hi Arno, Thanks for your appreciation on my brown-headed gull photograph. Your wild-life gallery is really awesome. I have unchecked the option of direct linking my photographs from the pbase gallery. That should stop the illegal using/linking of the photographs.
Thank you! It is always a pleasure going through your stunning photos!
Thank you Arno, Yosemite is such a beautiful place. I got lucky between storms.
Awesome photography, Arno.
So many extraordinary animal photos. Wish I could pet each and every "critter" (animal).
We all have our favorite subjects and you do a superb job on the Big Cats...
Thank you once again on your comment on my flower, and nice to meet you also. Love the white lion photo. I have friends in the UK that are members of a wildlife group and the one lady comes to south africa every year to phtograph the cheetahs
Thank you very much for your comment on my flower, I have enjoyed looking at yours also. I am on a photo site with 3 people from South Africa also and I enjoy looking at their interseting birds, wildlife and insects also
I will definitely be returing to view your galleries on the wild life of Africa. There are so many interesting pictures here that it is impossible to view them all in one go. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful galleries, Arno! Your galleries are my favorites on PBase, and I have looked at many others. Best wishes to you and your family. Missy
Very nice galleries, thanks for sharing your part of our world.
Most enjoyable galleries, Arno! Thanks for posting.
you have an amazing gallery Arno. I really enjoyed browsing your gallery. It's full of life. Something very fragile, that our children may no longer see in the future if not protected and saved. Cheers!
Wow!!! I really like your Home page image of the three lioness' getting a drink, great capture, and thanks for your nice comment on my Pintails image...
Excellent galleries! I like how you compose your shots a lot. You make good use of the available lighting. Keep up the good work!
Truely marvelous photos from your magnificent corner of the world
A treat for my eyes Sue P
Arno thanks for letting me know how far you were from the elphants and being surrounded by them is frighting, so I can understand your concern. The closest I came to a lion was when I took a pictue of an oil painting my sister-in-law painted for my wife and me. I truly enjoy viewing your shots and look forward to more in the future. Your sister does wonderful work also. Both of you are very accomplished photographers.
Thanks for visiting my galleries Arno. You got some great galleries here...What a place to live! I wish I can be there!!! Antoine
Well, you should be a professional. I am a huge animal fan, always have been. As with any art, I think you have to love your subjects to understand and take great pictures of them. You obviously do. My hat is off to you and my heart is with your work. Your photos are a great resource. John Matt
I take it you are a professional photographer. Given the quality of these images and your obvious passion for what you do, I can't imagine that you're not. A place to come back time and time again...thank you. John Matt

wildlife is the way to go! and you are a master for that!
Thanks for you comments on my photo.
and thank you very much for sharing yours.
Arno, Thank you so much for visiting my galleries and commenting on my photos from Botswana. I am humbled by the beauty of your region in Africa, and I have to admit a bit envious that you live so close to what I consider to be one of the most amazing places in the world. I enjoyed looking through your images, and hope to return again to Africa soon. I'll be back often to look through your galleries for both inspiration and encouragement to endure another 19 hour flight!
Thanks again, and cheers..
Very nice images and great work, thanks for sharing
Your images are amazing. It has always been one of my dreams to go to Africa to experience all of these beautiful animals 'in person'. Your galleries are inspiring and encouraging for me to make that trip. Beautiful work.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful hardwork :) ....
We must have many interesting experiences in the parks!
Hi Arno! I've begun to look fwd to your visits to my website and appreciate your encouraging comments!
Thanks for the vote and compliments on my pelican gallery. I see you share my love of living things also. Are you a park ranger?
Thank you for the comment and vote Arno. You are one of the people I try to learn from on this site. Keep up the good work.
I enjoyed browsing through your AWESOME gallery! Thankyou for sharing!! Just unbelieveable shots! :) Thankyou!! Thankyou!!! :)
Stein Tore Eikeset
Thanks alot for the kind comment. Browsing your pictures is a great inspiration.
Thanks for the kind comments and look.After going to Africa i have a much better appreiciation for wildlife from there.
You have a great collection of wildlife which i know was in many circumstances very difficult to capture. Thanks for sharing with all of us. Peter
Hi Arno thanks again for your comments i wish i can go to africa to take some wildlife photo.
Hi Arno, Thanks for looking at my landscape shot earlier today, Glad to hear that you liked it! Thanks again for the compliment!
Hi Arno, Thanks for stopping by my galleries. It's highly encouraging to get a kind comment from a photographer as talented as you :-)
Many thanks Arno on your nice comments of my images, they are much appreciated..my first love is wildlife photography...
You do beautiful work! Thank you for your comment on my Bald Eagle shots!

Ton, Ben & Rob Nagtegaal
The link to your owl is working. nice pic by the way.
My brother Rob told me about your site, you've got some mighty nice pics from all the south african wildlife, i surtanly hope i'll be able to go there sometime and see for myselve.
Regards, and thanks for your comments on our pics,
Your galleries are just wonderful, I am adding you to my favorites list.
Thank you Arno for visiting my gallery and for your kind words, I also enjoy your work very much .I wish some day I can visit your great country and photograph some of the wild life. Regards: Oscar Rico
Ton, Ben & Rob Nagtegaal
Wauw, I really like your pictures, you gave some nice commands on our Pictures so i wonderd about yours. They are great, makes me want to go to South Africa (thats were most of them were taken i guess) Keep up the nice work.
Thank you so much for the vote and the kind words that you left with regards to my Manila Zoo gallery. I wish and pray that someday soon, the animals at this zoo will be cared for by compassionate and responsible people who know how to give these animals the excellent care that they need and deserve.
Thank you for your nice comment on my cat picture. Your galleries are wonderful!
Thanks Arno for your comments today - the ski shot was in fact taken by my daughter. I am fast running out of superlatives for your photographs (yes, photographs NOT shots!) they are spectacular. Chris
I enjoyed a lot viewing your gallery with title "collection of popular galleries" The shots of animals are so great. I admire how you capture the subject with great lighting and composition which is one of the few most important on photography to create a stunning shot. I hope to see more and surely would explore to view all the photos in other galleries of yours. Keep up the good work and sharing your great works :) Best regards --Edith:)
Hi Arno, Thank you for your comments on my rhino picture. Very sad indeed. Your selection of wildlife photographs is simply spectacular. I am going to be coming back here often to take a look. There is so much to explore.
In 1995 I visited South Africa and Botswana. Got to see animals the way they should be seen in the Okavango Delta and Pilanesberg National Park. I hope I will get a chance to visit again.
Lloyd & Sandy Spitalnik
Hi Arno, thanks for the info and wonderful picture of Karools. She looks like she'd be a lot of fun to live with.
Arno, your galleries are award-winning.....your photos are stunning to say the least. I have no idea how you capture these magnificent creatures so well, but I am glad that you do. I REALLY enjoy your galleries-thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us. And thank you for visiting my humble galleries with your kind words......
Thank you SO MUCH Arno for the many visits to my galleries and for always leaving a few encouraging words that let me know that you appreciate a photo or an image.
Thanks arno for both yoyr vote and comments on my coyote, they are appreciated.
I've added your website to my favorites list and look forward to more of your superb postings...
Terry van Zyl
What a beautiful country we live in. This album is a reminder of how lucky we are as South Africans although it is so easy to forget. Stunning pictures that you are sharing with the rest of the world.
Arno, Letsatsi is beautiful. I'm honoured to have had the opportunity to paint such a magnificent creature. Thank you.
Arno, thanks for your comment and vote on my wood duck image. Very much appreciated. Keep up the good work with your African wildlife photography! :-) Guy
Thanks Arno for yor nice comment on my gallery, but, I must say my gallery doesn't compare to your superb work with the big cats and the other African wildlife. You have a fantastic collection of images...
Thank you, Arno, for visiting and for your encouraging comments! So glad to hear from you! Regards~Judy.
Great work Arno, I will check back when I have more time...
Thank you Arno & Louise, your photographs are wonderful. In this country we never see the wildlife you display. I see the odd squirrel, cat, dog, duck , moorhen or Swan, my challenge is too get some good animal shots, but im still learning, when an opportunity has arisen my results have been rubbish,even when pigeons were at my feet my shots were useless, that is why I am in awe of your shots, because I will never see these things otherwise. Keep showing the world these marvellous creatures. Your pbase friend adrian
I love photography but do not specialise in any field, if something catches my eye, no matter what is is I try to capture it. In the summer I willtry to follow a local Heron that I have been tracking, i have a better camera now so watch this space:-)
Hi Arno! You have such a fabulous collection here! Wow! I'm speechless! Stunned! They are beautiful! Nature is truly wonderful. Lucky you! Thank you for sharing, and thank you for commenting on my gallery.
Thank you for voting on my wood duck image
Your galleries of African wildlife are remarkable! Thanks for sharing them. ~Guy
Thanx for the nice comments on my pics. Glad I came to see yours. These are truley incredible! What a thrill to be able to see and photograph these beautiful animals. Someday, maybe I will be as fortunate as you.
Stunning work. I need to take some more time and look around here.
What a great adventure and collection. I will complement you with these beautifull galleries. Hope to visit your country some day. Like to see you use a panasonic as well. Thanks for your comment. Y're on my list Arno. gr Rob
Arno, thanks for visiting my galleries and kind comments. Your Wife and yourself certainly spend a lot of your time working on your Photo Page. You have a great selection of Game. I envy all the Leopard shots. Have you any photos of Aardwolf or Aardvark.
Excellent collection of wildlife picture,it sud be a real pleasure taking all these pics in such a great surrounding.wonderful work.
Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful images with us. You have captured wildlife at it's finest, I find your work to be absolutely stunning. I shall continue to stop by often and enjoy your wonderful images, they are truly amazing!
Thanks for commenting on my gallery Arno.
I'm intensely envious of your access to African wildlife. It's a long and expensive flight for me to get there from Melbourne.
If I lived in Sth Africa I would be like you, spending as much time as possible in the bush.
Loved your photos, by the way.
F García Robles
Maravillosas fotografías de la vida en la naturaleza.
¿Quien pudiera estar en esos momentos?
Gracias por compartirlas
saludos desde España
Thanks for viewing my seagull image. If you go to original size, the water falling off the bird is amazing. I was lucky to capture that. Your galleries are fantastic. You are very active and I often view your pics! Regards.
Thank you for the comment regarding the flamingoes :-) You have a lot of nice photos in your galleries and I enjoyed them a lot. Thanks a lot for sharing
Lloyd & Sandy Spitalnik
Hi Arno, thanks for the comment on my owl picture. Your galleries are beautiful. It must be quite thrilling to be in the company of such spectular wildlife.
Thanks Arno for visiting my galleries.
Great work and very beautyfull country !
Arno, really enjoyed looking at all your galleries, so many great shots...Thanks for sharing...Ron
Great variety of wildlife shots!
Great work, nice to see some pix from SA on this fabulous site. Will come back another day and look for more pix
Thanks Arno for visiting my Pbase site and the kind words. You have taken some terrific images and I have greatly enjoyed looking at all your galleries. I have to put South Africa on my places to visit list.
Lots of good animal shots in all of your galleries, obviously taken over a long period of time. Makes my 3 years of doing the same seem small in comparison. It is a pity that all of the people who capture wildlife in Zoo's cannot come to Africa and see the real thing. We are lucky ourselves to have that opportunity. Well done to you and your wife!
Thanks for your comments on my "Wild Mammals" photos. Yours are much more interesting than mine.
like your picturs a lot! will look more. this was in kruger park south afrika
and etosha pan namibia. i spent great time there
great photos! always wanted to make it to your part of the world someday,
