Nice wave of springboks, Jan :clap: :clap: .
They are so graceful !

When in Kruger, I stopped very often for impalas and in Kgalagadi same stops for Springboks.
People sometimes wondered what I'm looking at :hmz:

A friend of mine and forumite Billycan sent me these pics and asked if I could post them on the forum on his behalf.

He writes:

Hi there,
Here are two photos taken from hut no 1 at Urikuruus at 4.24 am.

I had set up the camera the previous evening and was hoping for a leopard or something dramatic. I am however quite pleased with these two shots, focussing in the dark is not easy and you know how far the water hole is from the bedroom balcony at No 1.

Thanks Bill, I think they are awesome, and also thanks for giving me the opportunity to post a few pics on the forum... May 2012 was really long ago :(
