I'll try Jazil, But as you've probably worked out by now I'm technologically challenged. It may take a while but I'll do it

I chose this avvie because it is one of my fave pics. A juvenile baboon who is in a pensive mood......almost as if he is atoning for his misdemeanours - which kinda describes how I spend most of my days :roll: .

PS I have no aspirations of growing up to become RP :twisted:

Here is the pic in a bigger size

Just another dead tree? The difference between lead wood and dead wood? No, when we first went to Kruger more than a quarter of a century ago (Pitsi was still in diapers) we came across this dead tree in the middle of the road. Since then, whenever we went to Kruger, we had to visit “our” tree. After all these years it has lost a branch or two, but like us, it is still basically the same. That road, S130, also still produces its rhino almost on every trip. It also had other highlights such as a cheetah mother and cubs, leopard, lion, mating honey badgers, fighting elephant bulls and of course our famous “miniature skunk” (Dwarf mongoose)

For us this tree will always signify nature in general and Kruger in particular.

I'm referring to your awesome avatar :D


The question was asked in another thread and I started this thread.

Where does your Avatar come from?

I'll start. Myne is a negative of a Baobab tree.

This past December I went to Kruger with a UV torch for the purpose of looking for Scorpions at night.
My star sign is Scorpio, so no wonder I am fascinated by them. :)

Searched the trees & ground at Skukuza & Satara but didn't find any.
But there were loads in the trees at Lower Sabie
Probably my favorite sighting of the trip. I got a bigger thrill seeing the scorpions glowing with the
eerie blue light, than I did at a lion sighting the next day.

Anyway, just thought I would use one of my photos of them as my Avatar.
