LQ,

Love your beautiful portrait shots of lions. :clap: :clap: :clap: Remember to share some tips on where to find them.

We will be there over Easter weekend up to 10 April. I will lookout for those big lenses. Wonder if Jan will be around still by that time. :yaya:

Hi Son Godin,

Thank you for the compliment.

This Pride was spending the whole day at Kamqua WH, moved that afternoon up 100 meters north of Urikaruus Camp (we actually witnessed a failed Gemsbok hunt, and we had to haste back to camp!!!) and the next morning 5 km north of Urikaruus.

Will tell all lions you are on the way, they must stay close to the roads and pose nice for the photos............ :thumbs_up:

As you probably know, this is the end of a lion yawn, but it always looks like a naughty grin to me! :wink:

I know this is a "stupid" question for most of you - but how do I upload an image ? Ive tried to copy/paste etc etc but seems like my knowledge is a bit impaired in achieving success :wall:

Thanks Karin - much appreciated

Just a question to the web developers / moderators - why don't you initiate a more user friendly system ? Also to have your pics floating around in cyberspace (otherwise you cannot upload) makes us more vulnerable re pirating of our images ? I've posted pictures on numerous other websites and all of them are easy and much more user friendly.
