    Len, is it true that you are not allowed to get out of the safari vehicle to answer the call of nature?

    Why didn't you get closer to the leopard while he thought you were trying to steal his groceries? :)

    Daaang !@!!

    That was a good story . Ol Len is heck of a hunter with rifle or camera !I have always thought the balloon moment was a great timing deal .

    So , no tinkle off toyota ? Tinkle in Toyota? What all those girlies do for " shakin the bush" boss :p

    If you think Len is a great photog you should see his prowess with a website . Check out http://www.LenBackus.com . You will love this state of the art info and dicussion center for the Long range /short range hunter / photographer /storyteller /reloader or just plain ol reader .

    Great story and super pictures. Again, it was a super read.

    Looks like a great article and pics to be the centerpiece of your new LRH Home Page.

    Len,

    Your photos are fantastic. Your story telling comes alive like a tale from Peter Hathaway Capstick. I will probably never get to Africa so keep the photos and stories coming.

    Regards,

    Wayne

    Thanks, actually there is one more story from that trip that I haven't written. I'll do that this winter.
