And almost a self-portrait in the wing mirror as well
Showing a part of the car in the picture gives one a perspective of size and distance.
In doing this one can see that I have not zoomed in to make things look bigger and closer.
I do however make sure that I am not taking a self-portrait

Magic. Will be going over to see my son and family in Australia for 3 months and all I will see is the possum that lives under the house, and some Koalas and Kangaroos in the koala sanctuary. I will visit the forum from time to time to enjoy the beautiful african wildlife. So enjoy Addo in all its wonderful glory!
Hi Delene D
Thank you for following the posts.
Yes the Addo ellies are special and to think that they were almost hunted to extinction makes it even more special.
Wishing you a safe and pleasant journey to OZ and a wonderful time with your family.
Pleased to hear that you will be popping in here to visit and catching up on Addo.

You are so very lucky to be able to spend so much time at Addo
Absolutely gorgeous photos of the orange-throated longclaw
And what an awesome early morning ellie experience
Yes I am very fortunate to be able to visit Addo regularly. Part of the N2 highway that was under construction when you were here has now been opened and it takes me 30 minutes in the morning to travel from home in Port Elizabeth to the southern gate entrance.

That is a truly gorgeous ellie photo in the afternoon light
I was watching the rest of the small herd that had already crossed the road feeding on my left when this straggler came along very quietly and I had to hurry to take this pic as he stepped onto the road.
