I didn't see it, so I can't comment. :-?

Back in the park this morning for a short drive. I planned on a short one before the predicted heat gets too serious. It started off with the makings of a scorcher, but slowly the clouds moved in, the light became terrible and so it remained a short trip. We now have light rain and nowhere near the predicted temperature.

Well, it's been a while since I last ventured into Kruger. Last Sunday I took a drive up to Mooiplaas for a skottel breakfast with JLee. She decided that we should get an early start to make the most of the day. I was rudely awakened at 05h00 and told to get up, the park is waiting. 0*\

After a quick shower and a coffee we hit the road. Out timing was good and caught the sunrise just after entering.

Image

There wasn't much to be seen and it is very, very dry!!! A few birds were trying their luck fishing in a small section of water.

Image

Another hopeful...

Image

Still at it...

Image

And then...success!!

Image

He then came closer, as if to say..."You see, that's how it's done!"

Image

At Mooiplaas this Arrow-marked Babbler was eyeing out an opportunity to scale some food off the skottel...

Image

Image

The rest of the day was a trip along the Tropic of Capricorn and then down to Letaba and back home again. We saw a fair amount, but nothing worth photographing. :o0ps: Better luck next time...
