Wow some great images and sightings :clap: :clap:

Morkel ...saw many images on other websites of your Eland kill and all I can say is take a bow for capturing once in a lifetime sighting perfectly :clap: :clap:

You asked for a few more images of Mufasa Jnr (Kij Kij king)... well spotted.... his eye look damage...may be a fight with his younger companion :think:
