Hey Tiny - just a tip that will make life easier for all that are keen to look at these great photos - the files are massive and take forever to download and view - or not possible to download if you have a really slow internet like most of us. There are many ways to reduce the size of the file and then they open immediately and still retain the neccessary quality.
One way is to select the pics you want to post, right click on them and select the 'send to' option, then selct the 'mail recipient' option, you will then have option to select the resolution.. select the 'medium'. Then click on 'attach'.
It will take the files and put them as attachments in a draft email. You can then copy and paste these files back into your picture folder, and the will be around 100kb size instead of 5meg.

Tiny .... I tried to jiggle the old (big photo size) post around to this new post ( I'm not very good with this stuff....unless someone makes nonsense on the forum ), so its a little disjointed but the photos look good mate !!

Glad you enjoyed the pictures, very exiting when you see it in person. My hart went boom boom when these lions came out the bush to drink water at the Halali water hole. :woo:
