Spotted this one on the Orpen Road. It had a chick with it and I hope Moegaai posts his pic as it has the adult and chick in it.

Here's one of my pics. The sad thing about the pic turned out to be a great point of reference - a cigarette butt next to the road in the KNP! We were VERY lucky that the adult was being held back by the chick, allowing us all some pics.
