Thanks Hilda,Jan van Wyk, Goronto and Lion Queen.

Jan van Wyk - you continue to amaze - your photography is outstanding - thanks

On an overcast day during an early morning drive, we came across this troupe of ballerinas doing their rendition of "Swan Lake" :lol: near Rooiputs. They continued this exhibition for quite a while before bowing out and dispersing into the bushes.
