Hello everyone, it has certainly been a while since I was last on blog duty! And it certainly has been a busy few months as Chad has kept you all up to date with. It is always a little nerve-wracking to come back on drive after leave, but once back behind the wheel and camera nearby one starts to relax again.
One of the southern stations called in a male rhino, and with this animal being on the request list, I responded. En route there we found a breeding herd of ellies with a large bull traipsing behind. They were already mobile and we just caught them before they headed down steep embankment and disappeared down the drainage line.
We eventually got to the rhino, who barely raised his head he was so involved with the new green grass. So we patiently watched him as he mowed away, and only once he had pushed into rather thick bush did we move on for a drinks stop with a spectacular sunset.
With not much time left, we headed to see what the lion were up to. By this time is was becoming dark and while we got there in time to watch them feeding, rolling in the sand and rubbing up against a Date Nut Palm, this is unfortunately the only photo that really came out - and only because she decided to sit still and strike a pose for me.
Well, I know tonight's blog is short and sweet, but I hope this next week is filled with good sightings and great photo opportunities for me to share with you.
