Image comes :wink:

Image comes again :dance:

ready for another step :thumbs_up:

Part 5

24/27.3.2013
Urikaruus No 4

24.3.2013

I'm not sorry to leave Nossob and its horrible nights :redface: Once again, I piled everything in the car, somehow, and I'm on my way. Next goal Urikaruus, and of course Lionspoon and Spots :dance:

We will share, without knowing, some wonderful sightings and Steph, gave me the necessary explanations to my observation. Thank you :k , I like to understand what I see.

I arrived at the Marie the Gat, a Brown Hyena tries to approach the water, the Oryx dissuaded it :naughty:
It hides in the bushes a little further and I continued my journey
