Pantera leo - magnificent ! Was that taken with a long lens ? I have not been so fortunate as to be able to see these beauties properly , they fly away at the slightest movement , I assume you were watching something else in silence or plainly enjoying the ambience when they emerged ?

Hi Ndloti, it was taken with a 55-200 lens. We were driving slowly along the confluence loop just south of the Shingwedzi bridge. We then stopped because I thought they were Green-winged Pytilias. They sat in a tree just off the road, after checking and checking again I realised they were Orange-winged after a minor heart attack. They then proceeded to move down into the road a few meters in front of us. Feeding in and between the grass next to the road. We saw them on two consecutive afternoons in exactly the same spot.
