Good morning....
Thank you once again for all the votes and great comments and to Fred263, Andy (anglingandyq), Carol (caziwinkles), Maureen (HarrietH) and JennyD for their UA's much appreciated.
I am ending off my Wildlife series today as well as taking a 5 day break from epz as we are going away to Namibia. My bag is is already heavy with camera stuff so am not taking my laptop. I will be able to vote and view your images from my I pad though.
This is Scarface the lion....he was the one snuggled up with his sister on my Valentine upload. This and the next 2 images shows how miserable he was when his Mom and sisters chases him from the pride. You can see his battle scars from the way they fought him to leave. He literally howled for days, it was very sad. V4 are him and his sister a few months before he left and V6 is his Mom.
Have a great weekend....GrinGrin

Have a great trip and much happy snapping.

Small towns .... Visiting Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. A two hour flight from Cape Town. Both are on the coast of Africa about 30 minutes drive apart. Sea one side and desert the otherside. Sand dunes and sand and more sand. Hot during the day. And cool at night with foggy mornings. Swakopmund looks like a village in Germany as it used to belong to Germany many years before. Walvis Bay has a stunning bay called Pelican bay full of pelicans and flamingoes. We are doing a desert tour as well. Lots of photos next week.

This set shows off the characters of these lions so well and the one that grabs my attention is V 3 where he is obviously keeping an eye on you although perhaps pretending not to be aware.
