Lovely shot once again Sprocky :thumbs_up:

Took this one near Skukuza

One elephant was drinking when the other appeared and didn't like the one already there. Had a couple of scary moments as he started off in our direction Fortunately changed direction

I was looking for the new thread that was started, "Mammals in Flight". But, I could not find it, so I thought I would post this one here. If anyone can find that thread for me, please post a link. :wink:

Anyway, this is an action shot, taken yesterday. :dance:

Lovely shots. :clap: :clap: Have yet to see a cheetah at full pace.

Was lucky enough to see this fellow cross the SaBIE RIVER between Skukuza and Lower Sabie on Saturday. Unfortunately no sunshine , lots of cars so the picture quality is not great. Tried a bit of photoshop (still learning)

It jumped from rock to rock 3 times in total. I didn't think it could make all of them.
