Jan, I missed a few, but enjoying the great pics of Big Daddy, the magnificent fish eagle in flight and then the heron busy with his meal. Great pics. :dance: :dance: :dance:

The splash landing - well captured - it is not always easy to capture a great splashing shot, but with practice and anticipation.. :clap: :clap: :clap:
