Appreciate all the comments. :dance: :dance:

When I started the LP gallery last year April, I never thought it will have a 1000 replies and over 20 000 views in less than a year.
I am glad so many all over the world enjoy and visit LP and want to thank everyone contributing to this thread. It looks like more people visit LP.

Thought I will ask the Hippo to say something....

Jan, that KF is a great action shot, WOW. He was flying low, it seems. Might be under the radar for the other Pieds not to pick him up...:cam: :thumbs_up:

The hippo - what an appropriate character and way to make the announcement. :dance: :dance: :dance:
:congrats: You started a great gallery and we will help keep it going, just a pity my next trip to LP is quite far.

Well done! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Jan congratulations on starting the Lake Panic thread, our favourite birdhide in Kruger. Thanks to all for contributing, after our trip in May/June I am sure we will post. :) Great pics of the Pied kingfisher and Hippo.
