Amazing shot Sparrow! Terrifying creature! Has anyone seen an ambush at Sunset dam, successful or otherwise?

That's a serious croc. I wonder if he has a ticking alarm clock inside him?

These Yellow-billed storks are clever. We watched some busy looking for food and they open their wings so it throws a shadow on the water and then they can spot the fish better. Here is one in action at Sunset dam.

Another great one, Jan. :thumbs_up:

To continue on the Yellow-billed stork theme, I wonder if this stork was aware of the croc next to it. Funny enough, I only realised that there was a croc when I downloaded the photo at home and did not spot it at the time when I took the pic.

Lovely shot of the warthog family with hippos in foreground. :cam:
Just shows that Sunset dam is a popular meeting place and great variety always around.

Great one, Jan. :thumbs_up:

A very interesting photo, Jan. :cam:

Seems that the croc and hippo are very close to one another. :hmz:

Great pic, once again. :thumbs_up:
