Whilst enjoying the mid-day shade under the tree at Sitzas waterhole, this gentleman decided to also take advantage of the shade unbeknown to us. We only realised this when he almost put his head through the open car window much to the amusement for the couple parked behind us :lol:

Just managed to grab these two shots after the event :lol: :lol:
