Jan, managed to catch up again. :D

Lovely pics of the "boss" and the heron flying. :clap:

The fish in the Pied's mouth seems to still gasping for air - looking at the mouth. Great shot. :dance:

Thank you for sharing...or should rather say spoiling us. :thumbs_up:

Thank you, Jan. :thumbs_up:

These Hamerkop always looks out of proportion with their hammer-shaped heads - but always great to watch them.

This is another beautiful pic of these great birds - thanks again. :clap:
