I need to book into a rehabilitation clinic. I think I have overdosed on some classy pictures. The second one looks like its been taken right out a publication....how brilliant is that?!

Thanx for these pics, I love them to bits.

P.S. excellent depth of field as well..these little critters are soooo difficult to get near to.

lovely, lovely, lovely... :clap: :clap: :clap:

Beautiful pictures. :D .

I must tell you that my greatest sadness about Mount Zebra was about missed opportunities. I ended up in the Park with no battery and no memory :cry: :cry: :cry: that is another story.

as I was leaving I spotted a Meercat family of about 16 members... they were about 20 metres from my car.. it sounds like the fisher man who caught a really beeeggg fishhh

I just wish that I could have done the park more justice.

Thanks Nick :tongue:

Oh no MM!! It is so easy to run out of battery and memory in MZNP because the park is a constant hive of activity - there is ALWAYS some little creature to photograph!! It's such a pity that you missed those shots - a great excuse to go back asap though ;)

YIPPEE, IT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL, EVEN THOUGH IT TOOK A HELLUVA LONG TIME TO LOAD ONTO TINYPIC.

Other than the sprringbok who had to relieve itself in the presence of human witnesses, we also saw some really nice sightings. judge for yourself: these are the pics :cam:

It is beautiful in the summer time, but ridiculously hot! and there aren't appropriate gate times, so it's not like Kruger where you can leave at 05:00 in the morning to see all the early activity! But it is beautiful anyway!
