Thank you for your kind comments PRWIN!! :gflower: :gflower:

If only you knew how many km we drove that morning to get into a better position!!

On the road to Satara from Skukuza. We sat in a huge road block and I could see leopard moving around in the tree.

So we turned around and drove one of those gravel loops and got back on the tar North of the tree and went down the road hoping that the block would be less on the north side. Which it actually was.

PLUS leopard had waited all patiently for us to get back to the sighting, before he decided to get down!!

And luckily I play in the evenings with my camera and get that out of the way :wink: :wink: So had all settings as good as I could get them and praying that I would be quick enough to get that dismount.

But ja some you just have to be glad you could at least get one photo! :gflower:

Great action shots :D :thumbs_up:

PRWIN, that is not a guy in touch with his feminine side. Very dramatic.

Lion Queen, I love the playful element of hyenas. :thumbs_up:

Roaneric, Now I want to go straight back to Kruger....sigh

Val, your hippo really looks to be on a mission. I would not like to get into that big fellows way.
