Good morning.....
Thank you so much for all the votes comments and help on my rhino upload yesterday. Thank you to Jukka (Kuvailija), Isabel (Chinga) and Alan Baseley for their User awards. A special thank you to Alistair for all his time and help in teaching me and I am sure others how to convert images to mono...I cannot thank you enough...Grin
This is Scarfaces best friend, we found them fast asleep in the open...they refused to budge and totally ignored us. he even has a fly on his nose....V2 is the bigger picture. Nothing better than staring at big cats sleeping, such powerful cats and to watch them at peace with their dreams is amazing.
Have a nice day...my days are spent visiting Rob in hospital three times a day. He is still in hospital and will be till Monday when he gets transferred to a step down facility. His progress has been slow but steady. However he is very sore this morning and full of complaints.

They look like an old married couple in V2, content in each other's company! I love the close up in V1, you obviously do much better with this lens than I did! As Barbara says Rob must be on the mend if he is complaining, it is very frustrating being stuck in hospital though.

I wonder what lions dream about? Lovely furry detail, Colleen.

Sorry to hear Rob's progress is taking so long, but as said above, he must be improving now he's complaining. I'm not sure I'd get Tessa to visit more than once a day though!!

Rob will be frustrated I guess since he's usually so busy - however
he'll be so glad he's had his operation once he's home recovering.

Here we come to talk about lions while. They say that Africa is somehow symmetric northern and southern extremity resembles Cape and Karoo mountains and Atlas mountains would seem to have many things in common, including lions. You have been more kind, in the South, you left some alive, but the French have not liked lions at all and in 1912 they killed the last one. (What's even more awesome is that the Romans wiped out the last lion of the current territory of Romania, lions lived then and in Europe!)
Therefore, you South-africans, be merciful, take care of them and keep them alive!
What would the Jungle do without her King ?
Beautiful two pictures of Their Majesties, as usual, otherwise.
