Hi Annick

Ha-ha, you must watch out. From viewing the screen at too close a range you might go squint MF. I bet you would have got a heart attack if this bird gave you a nip at that very moment (if only the illusion could materialise).

When is your turn for Kruger again?

Regards
Loot

Haha...I repeat: an excellent photo. Thanks for sharing your illusion;-)

Well since I left Kruger last year I think I've been there almost every day virtually spoken.
And I changed my mind about the once-in-a-lifetime idea. An idea I had before I went to Kruger.
I planned to go in December 08 as this period is my vacation period this year. But I talked a lot on and offline with Robin and Jan Hendrik. And of course there's the general impact of the Treknature community, for instance through Anna and you and so many other friends...
And partially through these contacts and the valuable insider information they provided, I think it could be a good choice to go back in June 2009.
So, I'll hope to spot the Shelley's Francolin and many other animals in that period. And of course to meet their wildlife photographers as well and do some small talk.
Regards,
Annick
