:dance: Amazing closeups of lions at Urikaruus - wonderful !! Plus other special goodies like CARACAL and a Dikkop and baby wildebeest - LOVELY :D

Love the Bateleur at montrose and I see our naughty lions are still there - is your last photo the one before that stoutgat lion took your camera out :lol: ? He is SOOOOO interested in it !

Lovely pictures KG :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: ....you really must send me these (and any others) as i don't have good pics of these two and as i've just discovered even the most blurred and tree obscured pictures are extremely useful for identification!! :)
So, after some painstaking spot comparing i've decided that these two are Seleka on the left and her bigger brother Tshidi on the right.
Great to know that both are still alive and doing well. :thumbs_up:

:D :D :D Thanks to you KG I just got my Kalahari fix!! What magnificent pics! I am also an avid fan of this thread and appreciate all the hard work :clap: :clap: Am I right that it looks as if some recent rain has fallen in the Aoub?? Friends were in the park beginning of the month and reported back that the park was looking fairly dry and no rain fell in the 10 days they were there :| Hoping that a lot more rain comes your way :thumbs_up:
