Stunning photos!! You can win competitions with those! :clap: :clap:

Sunset Dam is a true gem! Ive had wonderfull sightings there, including Crocs catching a barbel right next to our car, lions and leopards comming down to drink, Black Rhino a few times, the wilddog that was there the year before last.

Its always nice to go and sit there half an hour or so before gate clossing. With an icecream in hand and shooting away at the birds.
