Hello Ben,
Great to see you back after almost 10 years! And what a fantastic photo! Splendid colors in a beautiful composition and excellent sharpness. Hope to see a lot more from your fascinating country.

Hi Ben
Welcome back to the site, hopefully you don't disappear for another decade. :-) The debut photo of ypour new era is fantastic, the scene's wonderful, composition's eye-pleasing, colors are well saturated yet natural. Gorgeous lights and perfect sharpness as well. Although it's just 10.48 am here in Ireland when I type these, but already the 'photo of the day' for me. Excellent post, bravo! Which I miss a little is a proper note, about the species or the location.
Have a nice festive season, kind regards, László

Hello Ben,

Really beautiful..... I like such stretching Savanna where wild animals are roaming! Very well exposure with touch of African savanna. Beautiful color.....Looking forward to visit Addo....
Thanks for sharing,
