Thanks Lion Queen for your help out :thumbs_up: Lovely "Conversations" :clap: :clap: Looks like she is reading him the "Riot Act"!!!

eos5d....... The small dam/big hole has always been productive especially with the bird life. Perhaps its the fresh "sweet" water from the rain run-off that is the attraction.
