Good day.....
Thanks for your continued support of my uploads in the absence of me being able to vote on yours due to sow internet.
Also a big thank you To Kate (IrishKate) for her UA...very chuffed with this one as I am out of my comfort zone with landscapes...I was extremely happy with my effort.
We had good lion sightings today, including some mating activity...a very noisy affair...Blush.....this is the lioness resting after bout 3GrinGrin... As I captured it, just cropped in front of her to make square.
I converted it to mono but have also uploaded the colour both so was not sure which to lead can decide
Have a nice day....

Hau! Simba! Like them both. You must enjoy the lowveldt as much as you can, Colleen, Pieter (Tannie Bezuidenhout) said an excrutiatingly funny thing about Aussie and SA, he said "So many South Africans have emigrated to Australia that both countries IQ`s have been raised by it!" OUCH!! (heh heh) Regards Martin
Great close-ups, Colleen. The Mono looks very dramatic which is my fave.

Like them both Colleen, but might have lightened the eye a tad as it is very dark and difficult to see. But it is an excellent shot. Ann.
