Would love to be there - Great that with all your pictures you can bring us Lake Panic closer :thumbs_up:

Malachites are also one of my favourites - Great that there is normally always at least one to be found :dance:

Malachite kingfishers are my favourite bird - and you got a superb sighting, Jan :cam: .
Those little ones could really make some noise.

Thank you for sharing :thumbs_up: .

May I add to the theme... got this one 2 years ago - little bit out of focus, but here it is...

Comments appreciated. :thumbs_up:

Jan, nice action shot of the heron. :cam:

A year or two ago the water level was relatively low with piece of land appearing and this croc was showing off with us in the hide guessing how many teeth he got. Knarsus! - do you still remember :hmz:

Well, I am not going to volunteer to go count those teeth :lol: They look very sharp.

Lovely pics you guys. How I miss Lake panic and so sorry I'm going to skip it in July. We are only visiting the north. Well there's always a next time. In the meanwhile I'm enjoying your pictures :dance: :dance: :dance:

Lovely darter preparing to land and pied, Jan. :thumbs_up:

Then there are the less colourful ones, but also worth acknowleging... the Water thick knee watching things from the island behind the trees.
