Thanks for the kind words @pomkiwi and @TonyQ.     We were particularly fortunate with baby critters this past "El Nino" January in Kenya.

I have fond memories of 2006, Mike - I was at LK right at the end of August that year!  I think I saw a Leopard and cub too with Doctor!

I love all these photos; I have to say that even the baby hippo is appealing. Ugly babies simply aren't very common; however, one major exception is crocodiles.

@madaboutcheetah

 

Hari, it's indeed the same cub that you saw with Doctor.

I'm posting pictures of the mother, in 2006 and in 2009, on "Show us your leopards".  When I came back in 2011, they told me that, in the meanwhile, it was dead.

It won't be long before these young Barn Swallows leave the nest. It's already looking a bit crowded
