Thank you Hilda, Jan,

Please showcase your Kgalagadi photography here... include the location where the photograph was taken as well as the settings used on the camera i.e. Camera Model, Lens Used, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Focal Length, ISO Settings so that all may benefit and learn from this. if possible include a small write up on the photo.
