Dust storm

By ColleenA
Good morning ...been up since 5.30 am on yet another amazing Game drive. We saw amazing bird life today which I will share with you soon. A hot winter temperature today of 28deg.Sad
A huge surprise yesterday getting a GEA for my 6 week old lion cub, a BIG THANK YOU to Marktc

Meet Harold aka Skew tusk, he was showing off yesterday afternoon spraying himself with sand. He was pretty close to us so no cropping just a conversion from Raw. I will attempt to upload a second one of him showing off in a different way Blush , you will notice his skew tusks clearly in this one as well as notice he is using his trunk to smell us as we were very close, I couldn't pan out as he was so close.
The internet connection in the African bush is extremely slow.
Have a great day, and promise to catch up on voting soon.......
