Good evening YFS-ers Image

This week has been an Orpen week with Addo down since mid-week, Nossob down since yesterday and Satara not quite making up its mind what to do. :D

I have been concerned for a while that the sightings I post are mostly predators or rare/night animals and big five, with not so much chance in 15 pictures to have buck or other more regularly sighted animals in the selection. Would you be interested in having a mid-week selection on, say, Wednesday? I am prepared to give it a go, and try and get a more inclusive choice.

What do you guys think? Would you like to give it a try? Please give a comment when you vote.

This week we have a tie - in the first place this time. :D 6 and 8 both scored 20 points followed by 10, 5 and 14.

6 Teddy bear ears :D
8 Brownie in the early morning :dance:
10 Surely the highlight of the week - a rare visitor :dance: :dance:
5 A genet at Satara
14 The Handsome family :dance: :dance:

ritad and Melrockson both had the same numbers but not in the same order Image

Now for today's selection:

1 Beautiful BBJ at Satara
Image

2 A push-me-pull-you :D
Image

3 The wild cat again at Satara
Image

4 Ellie with two trunks :big_eyes:
Image

5 Orpen owl
Image

6 The geese are back at Orpen :D
Image

7 Warthogs in the mirror :D
Image

8 Does your water taste better than mine?
Image

9 Attitude !!!
Image

10 Alert mongoose
Image

11 Jackal pair reflected
Image

12 A leopard at nossob :dance: :dance:
Image

13 Who shifted the Orpen cam? :naughty:
Image

14 Undignified giraffe at the water :D
Image

15 The undertaker
Image

Please choose five (5) in your order of preference.
