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:
