sorry for the delay. The problem seems to be my computer. I am using SO's laptop now and hope that it works.

Beautiful *sigh*... The heron is particularly stunning. :clap:

I think, we saw that bokkie inside the gates as well. :lol:
Probably much safer than the rest of the park. :whistle:

Nice start of the day gatita, I like your heron shot. :clap:
I'm always surprised to see herons in KTP as for me this bird is more often associated with water.
The first time I spotted one in KTP , I couldn't believe it :big_eyes:
