A great action shot of the Hadeda-landing, Jan.
Just wondering - no sund clip with this one... :hmz: :D :D :D :D

Pumbaa, thanks. I still hold my breath and hopefully next week this time might have some good news.

My one friend, also a Krugeraddict, suggested that if the recovery is unsuccessful, I do not have a choice other than to go back to Kruger and do the low budget trip to get some pics, but he will be joining me to carry the camera bag and be the chauffeaur. :hmz: So, time will tell where this idea will lead to...time will tell. 8)

In the mean time, Jan thank you for sharing your brilliant moments with us. Just a pity I cannot support you with some contributions. :thumbs_up:

It is just amazing how long or far these Green-back herons can stretch their necks - that fish do not have a chance to get away. :D :dance: :dance:

Great pic, Jan. :clap:

Lovely pic of the White-faced duck in flight, Jan. :clap:

It is a challenge to get a nice pic of them at LP, but you got a nice one. :thumbs_up:

A lovely pic of dragon fly with tail up in the air, Jan. :clap:

They were quite active at LP and you managed to capture this one brilliantly.
Thanks for treating us to great photography. :dance: :popcorn:
