I have so enjoyed catching up here. The little critters are my favorites.

Lion Queen, your Mongoose has some vicious looking teeth there. Gorgeous shot.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

We saw 6 AWCs in KTP in Oct/Nov 2013.
This is the one we saw come down the tree. 1.5km north of the northern Dalkeith turn off (loop road)
