Thank you for the comments :thumbs_up:

eos5d...Don't be fool by all my images....we visit KTP many times and had our first sighting on our last trip on 5 different occasions. For many year we heard about them or just missed them and luckily we hit the jackpot on our last visit. 3 Brownies at Kousant one morning :dance: :dance:

Still believe the only reason was all the dead Elands laying all over the park. :hmz:

Wish we had a mobile studio and hope we will be again at the right time and place :cam:

Still believe the good luck lady is lion queen :hmz:

Think I took about 200 images of the 3 Brownies at Kousant...... :dance: :dance:

Sweet water ....

I came upon these five sleeping under a tree in the river bed (presumably after a kill). Due to the long lens, had to take them in three shots.....

then caught this one when he went behind the tree for some privacy!!! Notice, besides anything else :naughty: , the large chunk of uneaten meat at his feet :roll:

We were at a lion sighting when we saw the lions looking at something to our backs, when we had a look, this Brownie was hurrying along the ridge to get out of the lions sight!!

Late afternoon staying at Kieliekrankie........ :dance: :dance:
