What a great pose by the WBC, Jan :thumbs_up:

I guess that he might be a real celebrity on his usual spot.

Another great shot or 'Lake Panic moment'. :dance:

Jan, what time of day did you take this brilliant photo?
Was it in the morning. This was the time I mostly saw them close to the hide or extremely late in the afternoon, but then one have light issues.

Seems this fellow was really enjoying it. :clap: :clap:

Another great one.... :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

Thanks for the comment Kaapsedraai :dance:

On most of our visits we also found them more active in the morning but the light is not perfect for photography.

This one was taken at 14h00 and just after she mate with the Bul near the first perch on the east side.It was a first for me and was a big commotion with water splashing!!(See the other image on page 66)
Most of the time they move to the South side late afternoon but the sun is behind the hide. :D
