Thank you for comments. :thumbs_up:

Imbvubu - the YB stork catching the fish is a brilliant :cam:. Love the heron and stork on the hippos...wonder what happens next. :hmz: Thanks for sharing - some great ones. :clap:

A Pied kingfisher was sitting on the branch right next to the parking area, so I managed to get a close-up one...

Thank you Kaapsedraai and Markus! Cannot compare to your beautiful pics but I love snapping and love to share as much as look! Hopefully will get some good ones in August and share on a TR. P.S. I think after YB finished 'marking his territory' Heron decided to make a fast exit...'Discretion being the better part of valour'!

Thank you Jan, love your 'Gangnam style' greenbacks!

Welshboy, great pics, baboons are my favourite...think because I can relate to them! ;)

Sparrow, that Bateleur shot is a very special one! Well done


Bateleur is my absolute favourite raptor...only just after fish eagle! Beautiful pic Sparrow!

Maybe this is the guy the Impies were weary of...
