Hi all

It's been very, very wet here today. I suppose not much by the torrential African standards - but its certainly enough for us! The lions made a distant appearance today and several ellies hung around Orpen and Addo. It certainly made for a good camming day.

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 1, Mr. Handsome on 8 points
2. No. 3, Gorgeous hippo bottom on 5 points
3. No. 4, Ellies playing together on 3 points

No-one got the right combination

Please choose 3 pics today:

1. Duiker making a crepescular appearance
Image


2. Ellie herd relaxing
Image


3. Tall ellie
Image


4. Kibo is hopping mad that her perch has been taken...
Image


5. Here she is now
Image


6. Lion makes a second appearance in the sun
Image


7. Two male lions
Image


8. Verreaux's Eagle Owl
Image


9. Young zebra

Hi all

Apologies for the late post, have been working hard with some students I'm teaching part-time at a local university. All the stress and worry does take me back a bit to my university days - back when everything was black and white!

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 6, Wonderful scene on 11 points
2. No. 4, Beautiful sky at Nossob with an early visitor on 9 points
3. No. 7, Regular visitors at Orpen on 7 points

Congrats Melrockson who got this combination correct!

Please choose 3 pics today:

1. Brian returns to Nossob
Image


2. Buffalo makes an appearance
Image


3. Dribbling ellie
Image


4. "I believe I can fly!"
Image


5. "Me too!"
Image


6. Pretty giraffes
Image


7. Fantastic kudu bull
Image


8. Tiny ellie trio
Image


9. Wading stork
Image


10. Zoomed-out view of the entire herd
