Jan, you have mastered the art of anticipation to capture moments such as the Green-backed heron landing.
It is absolutely excellent. Thank you for continuing to entertain us with you LP moments. :cam: :cam:

Martrum. thanks for bringing a bit of LP with sounds to our homes. Love the background sounds as well and brings back memories. :clap:

Did the Green-backed Heron make his landing Jan? It looks as if he was going to fall backwards! :D

Lovely pose with a 'kill' of the Prinia, Jan. :cam: :cam:

Great shot of the Goliath heron and cormorant in the foreground. The Goliath heron love the spot on the far left side of the Lake. :cam: :cam: :thumbs_up:

I will see what else I got and will start posting some later this week.

Thank you for sharing, Jan. :thumbs_up:
