Thank goodness SO cleaned the windscreen that morning!! :dance: :dance:

I knew I'll have to take the rest of the photos through the windscreen!! No way i'm going to pass the camera to SO!! He takes way to slow photos!! Waits forever before he presses the shutter. I on the other had take a gazillion photos and hope and pray one will be 100%!!!

They finally got the Springbok up on the side of the road.

Only one of them then pulled the springbok to the shade of the tree where mom was still resting!
