My wife and son walking back to the car from a lookout point in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. The scary part is that there is a notice board where the path start saying the parks Board takes no responsibility for people getting out as there are predators around Smile
V2 - Leopard footprints in the cement where the path end at a lookout point Smile One obviously came to inspect when the cement was still wet Smile
Thanx so much to Christine for her treasured UA on my Pincushions yesterday and to all who took the time to vote or comment Smile

If there is leopards around I don't think I would want to be walking in that park. No matter how intriguing it looks. A lovely shot though.......Sandy

An interesting picture and script, thanks Herman.
That path has night time opportunities for more shots with the overhanging branches.

Night time shot? No thanks. But I would rather see the prints than the leopard hwho made them, immediately after my prints, rather uneven ones, would be seen going in the opposite direction. We saw lion prints circling our shelter once but as we were told "lion never eats where he sleeps" please tell me, even though this was years ago, that the guide was telling us the truth. Wink

Such an interesting place and shot, Herman! A sign like "Beware of the Dog" was enough, then it must be taken just as scary, not more. Your wife and son appear to be so relaxed. Is that a joke?

Verry scary,but verry brave.I supose you are used to it in Africa.
We see signs here saying "Beware of the Bull" or "Bull in field" ,so it's up to you if you want to go along that field then.

I notice you have sent your Wife and Son first Herman, man after my own heart, been to several Middle Eastern Countries in the past, and always saw the Wives walking several paces behind their Husbands, last time I went the ladies were walking in front of their Husbands, I asked why things had changed and was told LANDMINES!
