Lovely shot,reminds me of happy times spent bridge building in Kenya in the mid 60s.Wild life was so abundant.It became a daily routine to scare off a pride of 5 lions that settled on the Catapillar tractor everynight for the warmth it provided(Aberdare mountains,freezing at night)You are so lucky Colleen to have this right on your doorstep.Do keep it up,your images are wonderful.
