Hi all

Sorry for the late post, I've been watching the football - I'm now a nervous wreck! A few might remember that my dog was ill recently, I thought I'd just give a quick update. He survived the surgery to amputate his leg, although it's very strange and a little upsetting to see him in pain. Needless to say the kids are mortified. But we just have to be thankful he's still with us and remember he's the same loyal pet he's always been. Orpen was very productive last night, but the rain tonight will certainly ensure that doesn't happen again for a while...

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 3, Close up snake on 16 points
2. No. 8, Wonderful sunrise, that's why I love Africa!! on 14 points
3. No. 9, Lioness still drinking on 12 points
4. No. 7, Hyena in favourite drinking pose on 4 points

No-one got the right combination

Please choose just 3 pics today:

1. Baboon sampling Satara
Image

2. Night-time buffalo pair
Image

3. Ellie drinking tentatively
Image

4. Elusive genet
Image

5. Beautiful spottie with wonderful markings
Image

6. Impala cowering behind a bush - it's only a giraffe!
Image

7. Proud-looking marabou
Image

8. Giraffe kisses his reflection
Image

9. Sigh...
Image

Hi all

I hope everyone has had a good week and is looking forward to the weekend. Orpen cam is down tonight, which is a shame - but we've still had an excellent day for sightings. On a non-camming note, I thought that any German cammers might be interested to know that my son is off to Heilbronn, near Stuttgart, in June. What a great opportunity to further his German knowledge and, hopefully, his fluency!

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 1, Close up blue wildebeest on 11 points
2. No. 2, Nice pair of giraffes on 11 points
3. No. 6, Cape buffalo on 6 points

No-one got the right combination - but a few were very close!

Please choose 4 pictures today:

1. These giraffes are becoming regulars
Image


2. Felix poses nicely
Image


3. That's not a troop, that's an entire army!
Image


4. Duiker wandering about Orpen
Image


5. Ellie pops in for a drink
Image


6. Genet spotted, in more ways than one...
Image


7. Warthog standing proud
Image


8. No males around? Ewes your time wisely!
Image


9. Baby baboon all alone
Image


10.Reflected stripes
Image


11. Wildebeest spooked by something
Image


12. Hyena on a mission
Image

Enjoy!
