A very warm welcome to you, Rindert :D

What beautiful pictures :thumbs_up:

I also love the grooming pics, but I also enjoy your little vervet. Exquisitively captured.

Welcome to the forum Rindert, and thanks for sharing your lovely pics with us. Did they warn you that this forum is addictive? Addo elephants are awesome, and those BBJ's grooming - I have never seen that before.

Hi Mites. I am very worried about RonnieL. Does anyone know why he hasn't been posting? Hope he is fine, and I must say I miss his posts a lot. So informative, I learned so much about Addo from him.

Thanks Lionspoon for finding out. I was so worried that we hadn't heard from him in ages. He was a regular visitor to Addo and we absolutely lived for his forum reports. We look forward to the day that he is with us again. Regards, D.
