Aaaah, he/she is too cute. I saw my first one in Letaba on my last trip.
A young couple from Australia were over the moon as the bushbaby was a 'must' for them to see.
They are not always easy to photograph. Lovely pic.

It is rather overcast here today. I do love the lushness of early Kruger summer. Sometimes the bright splendor can be quite breath taking.

As I think of facing the Gauteng early morning traffic, I cannot but help think of this road less traveled.

I tend to enjoy the smaller camps. I think that I will travel towards Malelane, so that I can have this view while eating breakfast.
