We're back from a LION trip and a half!!

Still struggling to download all photos and editing.

BUT I want to share this with you.

The morning of 5 November 2017 I went down to the hide hoping to have some nice sightings and maybe share some photos with the cammers of what they can't always see on the cam. Those comings and goings of the animals that is out of reach of the cam.

Little did I know that that morning (actually day) the cam was not on it's normal route, so all they saw was one of the hide corner poles.

Have a look at this topic to see what I could share with the cammers

Nossob Cam 05/11/2017....what you could not see
