Thank you Jan for the info on the hippo. :thumbs_up:

The photo of the MK is just great. They normally are difficult to photograph when busy with grooming themselves, but you got it excellently captured. :cam: :cam: :cam:

Thank you for sharing... :dance:

Firstly, well spotted, Jan :thumbs_up:

Secondly, it is another great image. I guess you were excited to see the purple heron there. :cam:

Just confirms that Lake Panic never disappoints one and surprises one.

Thank you for sharing, Jan...looking for more... :popcorn:

'Meneer' hippo! :cam:

Wow, he is a big one and just look at the face - it says it all.

Now we know who is in charge of the 'Lake' and how he looks like. :clap:

Great one, Jan. Thank you sharing

Thank you for all these wonderful pictures and comments about Lake Panic's wildlife!
We often spend time in this hide when we visit Kruger National Park
Here is a vidéo with grey heron family.
