I did tell this story on the Action Shot topic, but here is it "again"

Hubby, wife and 2 cubs were at the waterhole.

As any good wife would do, she spotted a pair of kudu and started staking them, while the kids where playing around the waterhole and daddy taking a lovely mid morning nap.

While stalking the kudus, the wicked mistress saw her opportunity and zoomed in on the waterhole. While she was checking whether the cost was clear, wifey spotted her!!

Wifey stopped stalking the kudus and started to stalk mistress. Up to this point the mistress did not see wifey.

Wifey telling her to keep her paws of her hubby and mistress explaining she just wanted a drink of water. She did not even see hubby taking his nap!!!

By now there was a huge commotion and hubby woke up, not sure what the heck was going on!! The 2 kids were standing all confused!!
