That is funny, but actually quite possible, because you don't always know the person next to you! :lol:

Beautiful shots of the Fish Eagle in flight RoelfA! :clap: :clap:

Very special Heron reflection Jan! Maybe the Croc was confused by the reflection and the real bird! :clap: :clap:

Stunning picture of the Squacco with the Thick-knees Kaapsedraai! :clap: :clap:
