THE MORNING POST – A BIT LATE πŸ˜Š

We had another enjoyable game drive this morning. Just as the sun was about to burn away the morning mist, I took this image of two Lionesses with their five cubs.

I love the mood!

THE MORNING POST – ALL ALONE

I had not seen Lions for quite a while but last night I found a single male in the western part of the reserve. It was be quite unusual that he was by himself.

He is part of a male coalition, but I assume his brother is attending to some Lionesses in estrous and inflicted some temporary social distancing rules on his brother 😊

Have a good day.

THE MORNING POST – COLD AND MAGICAL

Winter mornings can be quite cold, especially on an open Land Rover driving through the mist. But when sun breaks through it can look magical 😊

Have a good day!

THE EVENING POST – NOISY BREAKFAST

The highlight of today’s game drive was the sighting of a breeding herd of Elephants. These normally quiet giants are very noisy eaters when they choose to take down whole trees for breakfast 😊

In case you are on Instagram you can watch my live video from this morning

THE EVENING POST – LONG NOSES

This morning I asked of which animal I took the detail pictures in the collage. The correct answer is an Elephant. And the details are: Ivory Tusk, Toe Nail, Foot Sole and Tail Hair.

Have a good evening 😊
