None of us can afford it to be in the Parks all of the time (although we would love to be).
Thank you :gflower: and Nedret :gflower: and SANParks :gflower: for making it possible for us to "be" at Satara and Orpen and Nossob and Addo, whenever we have time to watch the cams.
Such a privilege ! :D

What size are we supposed to use for posting pics now. I posted on the old size and it has come out larger. Sorry about that.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you million times over to everyone involved in bringing us these fantastic new images from the Satara and Orpen cams :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :k

It is just soooooo good to see Orpen again and now I can have some fun on the midnight shift again :thumbs_up:

But like chirinda, when uploading images as I have always done, they turn out much bigger than they used to be :hmz:
Even when I ask my image hosting site to upload them for website forum size they still came out large.

I guess no-one will mind about that when we get some big cats on the cam :D :D
