The end of an African adventure

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Thank you so much your votes and comment, much appreciated. Apologies again if I missed your uploads yesterday, my time has been very scarce with last minute running around.
We leave South Africa tomorrow , very excited for our 5 week holiday before settling in Melbourne. Hope the weather is good when we arrive in London on Saturday.
A goodbye to my wildlife today...some images that have never been uploaded as yet. Apologies for the big upload but it's the last of them...

A selection of animals .... A critter for CarolG, a Woodlands Kingfisher for the birders and some sunsets for Jukka. Grin
Have a great day...

A wonderful set of pictures Colleen, it seems as though all the images are saying goodbye. You should put a book together of your beautiful pictures. Happy landings into London, hope the weather is not too cold for you.
