LMHO LQ.

The same story could be told about the old duck at PnP. Now that the shopping has been rung up, she suddenly realises she has to pay, and rummages through 17 pockets on the bag to find all the 5c pieces.

Hi LQ,

Lots of adventure at the start of your KNP TT. Looks like you got some nice cool drinks in the end. Great lions shots. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Can't wait for the rest.

:popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

So true BB, I've stood behind her many times. :roll:

Or she suddenly realizes that she doesn't have that one item she can't go without and then squeezes past every one else to disappear into the shop for another 5 minutes!! Leaving you standing in what you thought was the shortest queue, only to now realize that even the one next to you with two trolleys full to the brim, will be done before you reach your turn!!

Thanks Son Godin, it was a trip full of adventures :thumbs_up:

I think you'll agree that even if you are only remotely serious about taking photos, this is the type of sighting you try and avoid at all costs!! :doh:

But Kruger had a few tricks up her sleeve and I did get some photos to be proud of...... :dance: :dance:

Do you stop at every mammal sighting??

Quote:
Bobbejaan klim die berg
So haastig en so lastig
Bobbejaan klim die berg
So haastig en so lastig
Bobbejaan klim die berg
Om die Boere te vererg
Hooraa vir die jollie bobbejaan.


A very loose translation.......
Quote:
Baboon climbs up the mountain
Quick he might be, but usually only to be naughty
Baboon climbs up the mountain
Quick he might be, but only to be naughty
To irritate the farmers
Hooray for the jolly baboon


There surely must be a reason for this folk song?? :hmz:

There are a few mammals I don’t like ( not fear, that’s something totally different!!) AND I know because I fear bats and this is a totally different feeling!

I won’t take photos of these animals as I think there by I encourage them to think that I actually do like them!

Baboons are at the very top of the list!

I close my window when we drive up to them and won’t make any eye contact whatsoever!!

Image

Even they kinow to close their eyes and NOT make eye contact.

I do know the small ones are cute, I will agree on that point only!

If you do make eye contact you will eventually think that maybe I should just take one quick photo!

This is a HUGE mistake!

Don’t even lift your camera of the seat! When you eventually realize what you are doing, you would have taken 100 photos.

This is what will happen.

You’ll stop at Tshokwane for a nice break. Even before getting out you’ll see this beautiful Bush Buck.

Image

Now of them you can and may take as many photos as you want.

By the time you’ve taken the second photo, you’ll realize that mr baboon has appeared in the back of the photo, like those ghosts sometimes appear on photos and you don’t know scientifically how that is even possible.

But mr Baboon is all meek and mild. And for some reason you might just think you’re all wrong about baboons.

Image

Don’t fool yourself!!

They will irritate someone or something!!

Image

See I told you!! This was now the start of running around, bouncing on stuff (our bakkie included!!) and pestering every thing that breathes!!

Then a pair of them will team up and either start a fight or they will sit and groom each other as if butter can’t melt in their mouths, or if there are babies in the group they will pester them and their moms!!

These two decided to do the mock fight. Actually looked a lot like dancing??

Hello, care to dance??

Image

The slow tango turn..........
