Good morning from a sunny Cape Town
I was bowled over by your response to my uploads yesterday. Thank you also to Richard (Dickspicks) Joan (EMJAYCEE) and Jenny D for their UA's.
Todays image is Scarface's sister. She was hunting when we came across her. I am also uploading a selection of other animals today so that I can get to the end of the series by Friday. I could not decide which image to lead with as I love them all. Hope you enjoy them.
Have a great dayGrinGrinGrin

Morning Colleen. Wow! A stunning series of images. All amazing but my favourites, having such a thing for big cats, has to be V2 and V9, just awesome. Oh and V1, she's gorgeous. So envious, i'd love to see them in the wild.
I'm off to the zoo to see the girls and a new arrival if its out and about...............We have a baby snow leopard, you've never seen anything so cute GrinGrin

But they charge a fortune to get in so I do not go !!
