A couple more of the Goliath.

The Pied Kingfisher was screaming up the lake and this was the only reasonably sharp one.

And finally a hippo yawn shot

This is my favourite spot in the Kruger,

Jan, I am really enjoying and admiring your photos. :thumbs_up: :popcorn:

The allusive Malachite kept flying past, but were fortunate to get this one from 'the corner spot'.
Image

When we were there in Dec, the birdlife was abnormally quite on all the times we visited the 'lake'.
However, we were rewarded with the pack of 16 wild dogs and the resident leopard just outside at the T-junction with the tar road.

Thank you Trrp-trrrrrrrr and Jan.

Here is a thick-billed weaver - it was a first for me. Shows Lake Panic always got a surprise for you.

Jan, I am enjoying your photo on page 84 of Feb issue of Weg magazine - the one with the hippos and croc at N'wanetsibirdhide. :cam: :cam: Well done :clap:
