Hi all

It's finally time for the YOUR favourite sightings 2010-11 final!

Thanks so much to everyone for voting in the preliminary rounds and throughout the year. This thread couldn't possibly survive without you.

Please vote using the poll feature that has been so kindly provided by Matthys.

I will be away until the 20th of August (my son is checking out Universities and wants - no, needs - my opinion!). So, I'll leave voting open until then....

Enjoy the fantastic year we had! Please choose 6...

1. A LEOPARD sighting of note

2. A lion at Satara

4. "Am I bugging you?"

I've voted :dance:

I really love the pack of wild dogs. And I also wonder what the zebra is thinking in Pic #18. Something along the lines of "Typical wildebeest, acting like they own the waterhole" :roll:

Where is all the YFS mites? Time to vote peeps! :rtm:
Well I do understand why some haven't voted :hmz: it was just too darn hard to make a decision but there are ways to make it easier:
1) Do as Tom124 did and eliminate them one by one until you only have 6 left
2) Do as I did and play 'eeny meeny miny mo' - much less bias :w:
3) Choose first your sightings that you want to see in the Parks eg. Leppie, doggies and cats then work from there
4) Choose the pics based on the quality of them, if you can't see the animal then don't choose it. If the caption say civet and you see a black dot then its a no-no :tongue:
5) Ask friends or family to give you numbers between 1 and 19 - like the way you play lotto :thumbs_up:
No matter which way you go, it is fun :dance:
Clock is ticking so join in on the voting...
