Thank you for the kind comments :dance: :dance:

The Tawny-flanked Prinia had a nest and manage to get some closeups while they feed the young ones.

Brilliant MKF so close. Yes the reeds could disturb the focus, but I guess you got the main part beautifully captured. It looks almost as if his beak was touch your lens. :cam:

The prinia, they are just great :thumbs_up: . Looking forward to see the feeding... :hmz:

Great photo, once again, Jan. :thumbs_up:

I wonder how many PKF's there are at the 'Lake', seems to be quite a number...or is just one big family. :hmz:

Nevertheless, they keep entertaining us and we can never get enough or get tired of their acrobatics and poses. :thumbs_up:

Thank you, Jan.

Beautiful Heron Jan! This time the fish is a little bit smaller! He should be able to swallow it without any problems! :dance: :dance:
