Unbelievable Kaapsedraai! The Pied Kingfisher looks far too small for such a big splash! Superbly captured! :clap: :clap:

Sparrow great shot of the Peid on the famous perch :clap: :clap:
Wish Sanparks can do something about the reeds behind the perch :think:
a Few years back you could photograph the birds with a perfect background ............

Luckily it is a long weekend and wish I was at LP...........
