    Great shot Irma, super to see the environment too and the yawn action of the male - super light too

    Awsome photo. It is one of my dreams to go to Kenia one day. For now the Kruger National park has to do. That is where I take most of my photos. You really have some stunning wildlife and landscape photos in your portfolio. Best wishes. Marie

    Sia bulisa!!!
    Hello Kai and Irma.
    Hope you had a wonderful trip.
    I am still flat out trying to organise my trip.
    I don't have much time to get on to FC at the moment.
    Will be in good old Germany from 10th of December till 15th of March.
    Maybe we can get together for a few ales.
    Best wishes.

    Outback John.

    thanks so much for your kind comment!

    @ cees
    regrettably we didn't get the "run" when he was getting from his bush to his girls - there was an other male cheeting at him delivering "compliments" to the ladies ;-)
