Oh yes. It might be a good idea to make the 4 pics per post an official rule on the forum, for all the dial up folks.

I thought we already had, sorta? But then certain people may have missed that, because they were cruising around in you-know-where. :lol:

Excellent idea! :thumbs_up:

I'm tempted to agree with Arie, W@H. Except that this bull goes by the name of Massunguini these days. (He was first photographed in the Mahlati area).
He is named after Phineas Massunguine Maluleke who was a Field Ranger in Kruger for many years. In spite of the deep indentations he might be still relatively young, and therefore has the potential of becoming one of Kruger’s biggest.
But not quite sure so let's wait what the experts say :wink:

Thanks all for the nice feedback ..

@ Arie ... thanks for the insect id. I like to sort all my photo's into files with their names. Don't have an insect book, so would not have known the name .. :thumbs_up:

@ Gwendolen ... want me to remove some pics :twisted:

@ Arie and José ... thanks for the ID ... I'm trying to confirm it. We can confirm as the ellie has a bump on it's trunk, but all the shots I've found of him are airial shots .. so can't see the trunk ...

@ Nico .. there is one on Day 6 & Day 10 :twisted:

@ Elsa .. you've hit the nail on the head!! :lol:

@ All the others .. thank you .. thank you .. thank you ..

Thanks, know about that and did do it with some pic’s (taking about 3minutes+ to download per pic :shock: )… but to do it with SO many pics would take for ever! :roll: :twisted:
