Good morning from Durban
Once again thank you for all your votes and comments and a BIG THANKS to Harriet and Zoran for their UA's for my Horn bill.
Back by popular demand is Scar face. He looked very regal this day ( late afternoon) and looked like his mane had been especially coiffed. I have only uploaded the next 3 images merely to show you how lazy he really was while we sat there watching him, and so that you can see his set of teeth.
Have a lovely day wherever you are. We have a warm winters day of 25 deg.

Super shots Colleen of this magnificent beast. He really looks a King. Might I perhaps suggest that these shots, excellent though they are, would benefit by just a touch more from the 'contrast' tool. His coat looks (to me) just a tad on the flat side.Grin
Just my opinion of course and in no way a criticism.
