    Hi Thunder Head and Andrew

    Any nature photo will do, obviously one of your own, but besides that you can post any picture that you regard as something special.

    The sun set would definitely qualify as a great photo thanks for sharing please feel free to post some more!

    Andrew LOL I can’t answer your question yet we will have to see in a few months time.

    Best regards

    Jerome it has only been a pleasure to be associated with Africa Hunting and its members I have made a lot of good friends here and it is my small way of giving back to our community.

    Thanks to you Jerome for the opportunity as well as all the members who will be participating.

    Looking forward to seeing all of the amazing picture’s guy’s.

    Yours sincerely

    You owe me money!

    That's what my PH said was this look I was getting from this Buffalo. I thought it appropriate.

    Got your back....

    This picture actually contains two rhinos standing rear end to rear end. I'm no expert, but I got the impression this was a defensive stance by these two to cover each other's backs.

    I didn't have lens wide enough to catch this entire herd, 30-40 animals or thereabouts.
