Not to worry Flutters, we'll meet again sometime soon. \O

This past weekend I joined RP and his buddies at Sirheni for a night. Thanks RP it was great! X#X

Here are some pics taken on the way there and back...

One of my first sightings was two Leopard, apparently a mating pair. I couldn't get a pic of them both together due to the bush. :-(

Next up was this relaxed tusker...

Image

The next morning when I left Sirheni this was my first sighting...

Image

More to follow...

Next up just after the Ellies was this Lion...

This poor Zebra was not too happy in the dust devil...

The last two pics are my first semi decent shots of a Kori Bustard in full display, thanks for the tip Leachy. ;-)

What a productive weekend in the park ^Q^ ^Q^
I love Sirheni because it's so relaxed and peaceful there, you usually don't expect so many thrilling sightings there!
Hope we manage to meet in November and can share some bush stories at the fire O**
Show respect for wild creatures. DON'T report your actual sightings on the internet!!!
