We have just come to the end of yet another of David Attenborough's wonderful and absorbing wildlife series on our TV screens.
Africa displayed awesome photography, truly amazing shots of animals and more of David's phenomenal information on the creatures who share our planet.
From elephants to ants, monkeys to mole-rats, I have sat through every episode enthralled by it all.
What a man. Will there ever be anyone to follow in his footsteps?

It would seem impossible. I was privileged to be taken to one of his events in London, just before Christmas, for my birthday present.
Presented by The Times newspaper and with another wildlife guy called Errol Fuller, they talked about and showed films and slides from a new book of theirs, Drawn from Paradise – about Birds of Paradise.
The lecture theatre in the Institute of London was packed. There was not one empty seat.
Not only is David an incredible expert on wildlife, he is very funny and witty. He had his audience in stitches many times.
Afterwards, we snaked and looped around the building queuing with our Paradise books to be autographed. He patiently signed hundreds. I hope that I have half of his stamina when I'm in my mid-80s!
I do hope our regular TV channels will keep showing his wildlife series, from Life on Earth to Frozen Planet, and many more of his programmes for years to come.
Meanwhile, I have my signed book to treasure and a photograph of myself sitting beside him on my bookshelf.
Well done yet again, David.
Carol Williams, Quorn.
