Good morning....
Thank you for all your votes and comments and to Drighlynne (Lynne) for the ID of the little critter.
One for shadow Saturday...a young male impala squinting into the afternoon sun. After all the rain they had experienced they were soaking up each Sunday... I loved the way his ear was down, quite relaxed.
Apologies if I have missed your uploads or only voted, my time is all consumed by three hospital visits a day, I will try and catch up this weekend..
Have a nice day...
P.S Have added a version for Barbara to show longer horns...

The warm sun is making him drowsy. Not too drowsy I hope, there are lions about. BUT I just noticed he has one eye open, clever chap.
