Fortunately the Hippo's eyes are far apart, for the birds not to blur his vision! Beautifully captured Jan! Great close-up of the awny-flanked Prinia too! :clap: :clap:

Stunning picture of the Bushbuck Kaapsedraai! :clap: :clap:

Let see if anyone could guess who is responsible for this neatly splash in the Lake... :hmz:

Great shot ones again - The bushbuck is cute and the close up of the tawny flanked prinia magnificent :clap: :clap: :clap:

The splash is great but looks as if it was a huge bird although I would say it was the pied kingfisher :hmz:
