Good morning.....
Thank you for your great response to my elephant yesterday, much appreciated....GrinGrinGrin
Today a portrait of the young cub you were introduced to last week. This cub was always intrigued by us and was intent on listening to the click of our camera's....just too cute
Apologies up front if i am scarce on epz this weekend, it is our wedding anniversary and Rob is taking me to Hermanus for the weekend. I will sneak my ipad into my suitcase though. Hopefully we may spot a whale or two while there as its the start of the whale season and Hermanus is known as a favourite spot.
By the way, our storm only lasted 10 minutes yesterday but was it spectacular with the bonus of a beautiful rainbow afterwards......Have a great weekend

Thanks Kathryn, it's because his Mom and Grandmother are relaxed with us. His Mom grew up in front of us. Because our Rangers treat them with respect they know it okay to be near us and feel safe. The other cubs were just going about their own business but this one loved the interaction with us.
