[quote="oddesy5466"]This is a very, very tough one!!! :hmz: :hmz: I have so many photos that i have taken in kruger that mean so much to me, but if i must choose one special one i think it would be the same as my avatar. There is just something aweinspiring and so unbeleivably amazing about a kruger sunset for me, so here is one of my favourites.( It also stands proudly in my bedroom blown up on canvas :) )

:clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

This is a stunning picture Oddesy5466 and I totally agree with Sunset moments in Kruger. (The Picture only tells half the story) My favourite 2 :redface: (sorry I know it should be 1 but I couldn't choose) picture is also a Sunset in Kruger.

My favorite wilderness/wildlife photo I've taken is "one that got away". The end picture is of the very top of a 17m tall Saguaro (pronounced suh-war-o), which is the typical 'old west cactus' you see in movies. I was a way's off and was attempting to capture a Harris Hawk who just landed on top of the cactus. So, at 20x zoom, I actually missed the bird! But I did get a picture that looks great as the background on my computer. :) (I know this isn't a KNP pic...but I'll have replace it come Feb!)

After what seemed like hours of no sightings we came upon this guy/girl on the S21. There was a little water in the hollow wich he/she lapped up - rolled around in and then curled up for a nap.
