Kaapsedraai, great image and thank you for uploading. :clap: :clap:

It is almost time for me to go back, these images reminded me why it is such a special place and why we spend many hours at LP. :D :D

I cannot agree with you more, Jan.

This blue waxbill was busy building a nest, but it was extremly difficult to get a nice clear shot. I guess, it adds to the variety one can expect at 'the Lake'.

Kaapsedraai, I can imagine your frustration with the Waxbill's positioning.

This thread just gets better and better. Great to see other mites on board.

Thank you to all for your comments.
It is much appreciated, but is busy planning a TR and will start one hopefully soon of our trip in Dec'12 from the south to the north and back. :think:

'Scratch & win' photo of the white-breasted cormorant was taken by my wife.
