Nice to hear of your activities.

I wish I had been on your sunset drive - still have to see a porcupine.

Lets hope your internet connection works for further updates. :thumbs_up:

Walk this morning was quieter, but still giraffe, zebs, wildebeest, impalas, warthogs. The warthogs were at the the start point and still there when we got back.....wondered whether we should tip the car guards!!!!

And all has now been quiet here! Seems folk are finishing off their holidays and not wanting to spend money on activities. While I enjoy going out, I am also appreciating the enforced rest too.

For now I am going to make use of the new attachment facility and catch up with some photo posting......

First some from the night drive.....the AWC....a bit blurry because it was active, I did not use flash, and there was grass in front of it confusing the focus but still so special.

Those were the only photos I have to post from the night drive......keeping the vehicle positioned for guests does not give me too much opportunity to take photos! But I get lots of chances and some of them very few, maybe only one......

Now a random assortment from the past few months....

Before I add more photos.....is it best to add the comment separately or with the attachment?

I agree with Dinkybird and anne-marie - comment with the attachment please EJ. :thumbs_up:

Awesome sightings and pictures! I love the AWC, but am "disgusted" with the Croc who ate one of "my Porkies"! :twisted:

Hail storm at Berg en Dal! :shock:

Lovely Cheetah all to yourself! :clap: :clap:

Cute little Pearl Spotted Owlet. They are so small, one really has to keep your eyes open to spot them, and you saw two! :clap: :clap:

Thanks for sharing! :dance: :dance:

Thanks EJ for posting those photos. What system did you get to do that?

Now simple to upload photos. They must be resized to a maximum of 500 pixels on any one side (used Paint and resize option to do that) and then when posting use the option to browse, select a file and upload and place 'in line'. So much simpler than the old system. Thanks a lot to the techies!!!! :gflower:
