I was photographing a young lioness hunting in Addo recently and she rounded my car and lined up the Warthog again (seen as a blur to the right hand side of kitty's shoulder) 40 metres away...cute bum shot anyway

Picture it...

The UKbadger back garden in the south of London UK. It is midday and it is cold and wet. The soggy lawn has, “Stay indoors and work”, written all over it........

BUM!

I wish I am at Matjulu too,

Just 4 mths to my next and third trip to heaven, amazed it took me so long to discover paradise. I was initially surprised how many fellow Brits logged on here but my first trip expelled any doubts.

I d'ont normally go in for bum shots but here goes.
