Sorry Jan, I had meant to congratulate you on your 5,000 posts when I last commented. Thank you so much for the time you take to bring us so much enjoyment :thumbs_up:

We will only be at Skukuza once you have left unfortunately. We are there over the last two nights of our holiday, 5th and 6th Jan, prior to that we will be at Lower Sabie.

Beautiful Grey Heron and reflection and hope you get the opportunity to photograph another hyena at LP soon.
