Thank you once again Jan van Wyk and lion queen for your really stunning photos. I can only wish to see and photograph an adorable lion family like the one you shared with us!
….and that lion that saw herself in the water reflection tells a whole story by itself! Remarkable!!

We stopped at the Auchterlonie picnic place and were on our way to the loo when a friendly visitor warned not to follow the footpath because of this rather large puffadder curled up and camoflaged right in the middle of this bush!
