Beautiful picture Marilyn. That's real Africa.

I agree with Paul, all the different animals in the same area is wonderful. The reflections in the water really make the photo great!

Cheers! DeEtte :)

Thanks for looking, Jacques, Paul, DeEtte, and La Mugna. The thumbnail doesn't look like much but, especially zooming in, I found it quite a remarkable scene! I'm glad you like it.

Greetings, Marilyn

Fantastic shot Marilyn! I enlarged it and it's amazing how many animals are at that watering hole (the jackal is rather unnerving to me, if not them....great catch)! :D

Driving home, at sunset tonight, my husband spotted a coyote sitting and howling of course we did a u-turn but came up empty (so I know how difficult it is to catch those fellows).

Thanks, Pam, for checking this out. In the thumbnail it doesn't look interesting as the other African animal photos, but when I found it in my computer photo album the other day, I was amazed. I'd forgotten how crowded the scene was!
