Appreciate all the kind comments :clap: :clap:

Previously uploaded the BIG croc in swimming in the water. He decided to pose in the open and only now could appreciate how big he is..may be 6 meters and many years old.

That pale chanting goshawk picture is fantastic :mrgreen:

Great to see the croc outside of the water must be the same one we saw in 2011 - Only part of the head is visible but the body is huge :tongue:

And what a catch! I wonder whether the Darter was able to turn it in the right position to swallow it! Superbly captured Jan! :clap: :clap:

So many incredible photographs! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Have not commented in a while but have to say that your last pic of the Fish Eagle is just beautiful Jan!

Your bird of prey on the perch is in fact a juvenile African Harrier Hawk or Gymnogene - awesome sighting!!
