Brilliant action shot of the take-off of the Green-backed heron, Jan. You got the timing spot on. :cam:

Love the Fish eagle in flight as well - they remain a bird that one will never get enough to watch. :thumbs_up:

Cannot wait to see what you will share next... :hmz:

You have captured the 'black fellow' brilliantly, Jan :cam:

Are the Jacanas still chasing these Crakes around when they getting too close for comfort - just imagine the sounds... :hmz:

Thanks for sharing :thumbs_up:

Lovely and detailed shot of the inside of the hippo's mouth, Jan. :cam:

I think it is the bottom two teeth that will do the damage if you get caught in them. :big_eyes:

Thank you for sharing. :clap:
