Yesterday was amazing. Nice, sunny and warm. On our early game drive we came across this HUGE male leopard just strolling down the road. Nathan quickly turned his window up and I turned mine down for a photo Smile He stopped briefly, looked back at us and then strolled on down the road. We also saw lots of amazing little tropical fish when we went snorkelling - it was like an aquarium ! Smile
V2 - the old boy walking away from us - check those huge paws !
Have a great day and thanx for voting and commenting on my Hippo sign yesterday Smile

Glowering back at you in V 1 and showing complete disdain about your presence by turning his back and wandering off.

Great passive glance you got there Herman, stunning image for V1 and V2; the blue sky certainly sets him off well.

I am off for more radioactive injections today, hopefully the last, then in August will know exactly what they have found. A long time to wait but hey ho, our NHS is not renowned for its speed; if I'm lucky they will tell me that they can make me as good as new GrinGrinGrin
