Lake Panic is indeed a special place 8)

I think that we are very fortunate to have such gifted people on our forum. These gifts are allowing us to see the beauty in a very creative light. So many people go to Lake Panic, look for the Lions and walk away disappointed.

Here, we see the jewel it is.

Thank you, thank you, thank you 8)

Yeah MM I agree, there is no need for lions at the Lake. The tranquilty is what makes me return time after time.

Over the years we had wonderful sightings and tried to capture as many memories as possible on camera. Sometimes you just mist the yawn of the Hippo or the Pied is not in focus and then one day everything fall in to place. We were waiting for the Goliath to strike for a long time and when it happen we were ready....
