Now for my family and other animals:

No okay just animals no family (maybe later)

Image

We still have alot of Croc's around and it looks like they are having a good breeding season judging by the amount of path ways been patrolled to nests.

Image

First time in 13 years I saw Hippo at Map. But they are not very photo friendly.

They were very noisy the day before the flood must have know something was brewing... The morning after they were gone but back later the day.

Image

A long neck. not some many around as in July, but lets face it we had a plague in July.

Image

Close to the Main gate I found a herd of (after a fast count) 13 Gemsbok. I'm not sure what the deal are with them cause I'm not sure if they are to stay in the park or not. Isn't there a whole story of animals previous natural area's and not introducing animals that are not from the area......


Image

Nearly forgot the clowns they are doing very well says some little one as well. but the mommies didn't allow the paperatsie near them.

Don't worry the Big ones will get their own post.

Sorry for the delay. The NetEkkies started a new school yesterday so mommy had to go hold their hands. We are now Unika-nnietjies.


This big boy was standing right next to the road and he's a beauty. As calm as you can get a Ellie.

It's raining in Botswana (I think.... :tongue: )

I must confess but I think this is probable the best landscape photo I've ever taken at the right place at the right time as they say.


Okay maybe this one is a close second.

Image

I love the landscapes but never seemed to get it right till now. (maybe never again but I will keep on trying if you will bare with me)

All good things must come to an end and that is the end (rear end)

Thanks for "suffering" through my TT and see you all at Map in about 5 1/2 months (first 2 weeks in July).


Be good and if you can't be good at it....... :tongue:
