So I went in to Skukuza for some admin related things on May the 1st. Of course once the admin stuff was done I went down to Lake Panic.

It was ridiculously busy being a long weekend and all.

I got these two guys.

And this guy decided to sit RIGHT in front of me.

BTW Jan Van Wyk.. Zero editing on this one. Everything as is accept for a small cropping :)

It does help that he came to sit about a meter in front of the hide.. On a nice height.. In the shade... Not moving...

He was a very professional model ;)
