Thanks again for the comments and views. :dance: :dance:

Super Mongoose will try to give more info...

LP is one off those places where nothing happens and suddenly it is action all around. I spend at least 4 hours for 3 days in a row at LP and luckily because of the heat not many people stay long.

When the action starts you must be ready, finger on the camera.

The young Malachite was begging for food. They were a little bit far for my 400mm, but keeper for sure.

The Woodland Kingfishers were a little bit far, but still a good sighting and a keeper for now.
