Two excellent shots from this National Park, Herman: in V 1 it looks as if the left crane is getting a piggy back ride on the Bontebok.

Just what I thought at first glance, Herman Smile Two excellent captures. Carol
Two lovely captures with my choice which has to be V1. It is certainly a great one with magic light
and good texture. Well done Herman.

Free entry, I am getting in my car now Grin, will there be free entry while I am close by, can always get on a ferry across to the African Continent and then it's what? a few days drive, or a couple of hours the way I drive Tongue

These are great Herman really sharp on the eye on V1 and V2 is aesthetically very pleasing; how lucky are you, bet you don't find one in your front Porch very oftenTongue
