Not nice when you almost pour your coffee over yourself :D

Right, after changing shorts following the winged intruders antics, we saw our 2nd leopard in under an hour on the other side of Trasport dam. It was on the hunt..

He disappeared into the brush, and we waited for over an hour but nothing happened, so off to camp we went - THE MOTHERLOAD was on...........

After the "Lord Mayors Show" yesterday, we decided to chill and view game rather than snap away, only bringing the camera out if something special was seen..

Low and behold, our MOTHERLOAD was completed with the addition of these 2 blackies....

A Blackie of another sort...
