Though the animals in Kruger aren't really that afraid of people, and generally can't distinguish between a car and any other large moving rock, they still don't like to look at you. Thus, we see lots of animal butts. Note, however, the nice telephoto effect on this picture: Ali suggested that I stick my monocular (like half a pair of binoculars, or a small telescope) in front of my camera and see what happens. To my amazement, it works exceptionally well. It takes some effort to get things dialed in right focus-wise, but the 8x zoom, combined with my camera's 7.5x zoom, really makes a difference.
