Saw this Bontebok near the road coming from Montagu yesterday. Our son Nathan had to play a cricket match there so the whole day from 12pm till about 8pm we were away and I could not look at all your lovely photos - will try to catch up today !!
Thanx again for your kind votes and comments on my Figs upload - nice serving suggestions were shared which we will pursue Smile
Have yourself a funky Friday Smile
