Hi Jan,

What a lovely shot! The reflection of the heron in the water and the water running from his beak makes the picture really showing the action!
Thanks for sharing!

Best regards,

Rob

The only time we have seen lion mating was at Sunset dam on the far side. Our simple cameras couldn't take decent photos, but we parked there for ages watching the antics - Superb sighting!
