This shot was taken by a friend of mine, Basil Dardagan. He won't mind me sharing it here. This was in February 2012 when the 3 brothers were still in a "coalition". What an awesome sighting (at Kij Kij).

In Sept 2012 we met these 3 Brothers on our way home.

See our reflection in his eye. :D


In October 2013 we found these 3 brothers, may be the same three . I can not remember the spot, guessing somewhere close to Jan se Draai...

On both sightings the 3rd one was more alert than the others.
