Stunning shots, PJL! You are surely luckier than me...
I did eventually see my first caracal in Kruger near Balule in July, and saw another one this weekend in Somerset West... but no pictures!
Thanks for sharing,
God bless,

Great pic :thumbs_up: It seems that Addo caracals often show themselves during the day :hmz:
