Heres my second try at posting a photo.
It also poses a question, I think this one is from De Hoop which I don't think is a SAN park, is that allowed? It could just as well have been from WNP though.

As per the norm... when I return from my annual hols I always have a bumshot that needs sharing... :lol:

The saying goes: "...cranky as a boar with a sore tusk..." Whoever coined that phrase will have a rewrite-moment when he sees this fellow's demeanour...
