Thank you all for the comments

Thank you lion queen

I didn't even know about the sighting of the month image. :dance: :dance: :dance:

Uploaded the image on my trip report. I had read Guss Mill Hyena nights book a few times and according to him you see seldom two brownies together and what made this sighting special was it looked like the Male was investigating the female to see if she is ready... to add to the wonderful sighting was the golden early morning light :dance: :dance:
