Thanks,
After several trips to Kruger it is amazing to see new situations every time. Arriving in Kruger we were looking forward to see the new borns and we actually were talking to each other how great it should be to see it happen.... well... like this mother heard our "wish" :) :)

Aat that was a wonderful sighting and how well you captured it :clap: :clap: :clap:

We saw the birth of a springbok in KTP last year and every step of the way I was willing the little one to get up and walk. Also kept a watch for predators. :pray: very hard they do not appear.
When the little one got to the mom and started drinking I had tears in my eyes. Just couldn't stop them from rolling down my face :)
