he rises (emerg) HOP, runs right over the Springboks, caught one, and leads him into a bush (like Georges Brassens said : l'entraine dans un maquis). It is at that moment arrives Lionspoon, three minutes too late :doh:

and maybe or Simon, or Garfunkel, the offspring of Elena :dance:

19.3.2013


My friend was waiting for me, I'm glad to find it :D

And begins the quest for the Cheetahs' family

It's the morning of AWC, three or four :dance:
A Martial Eagle, a PCG in bad shape, he can not open his eyes and seems paralyzed to the ground. I saw it several consecutive days and one morning it was gone. What luck :clap:

It's also the first day I saw a Black-shouldered Kite, and again ... Giraffes who make bubbles.

Image PCG :shock:

Image :rtm:
Image still the same

What would we not do to see a little closer???

I go home early, as usual, and, surprise... :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

I go home early, as usual, and, surprise :shock: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

"toc-toc-toc", Anne-Marie, it's me Gertie, I would like to present you my little ones: Gertia, Gertio and Gertiu"

Ho! at the back door, What a privilege. Thank you Gertie :k

She walks two tents away, pretended to go down to the waterhole and retraces his steps, clearly disturbed and climb the dunes behind the tents, his 3 little in its wake

The occupant of the tent next to mine, opens the gate ... "I want to see" I think they do not realize :naughty: :rtm:

You can't open now, they are four, it's too dangerous :doh: was my "alert"

As soon as they reached the top of the dunes, I rush in the the car and went to the other side of the dune and follow them on the edge, untill to the bed of the river. Two Jackals attached to their tails, it is easy to spot them. They will stay overnight under a tree, but unfortunately inaccessible. The next day, the Jackals are still present and we seek, Edward (the guardian of the camp) and I, without really distinguishing them. A male Springbok also knows that the whole family is there. He is on his guard and eventually turn around.
