Great shot Jan! (Beautiful blue Kalahari background 8) )

We never saw a striped Kingfisher in the Kalahari but we do know they apear there.

Thanks for sharing!

Best regards,


Rob

Ps: a bit off topic but do you use a yellow ribbon in other parks (so not only in the Kalahari) as well? We were wondering about this because it most of the time we see the yellow ribbons in the Kalahari and never noticed one in other parks.
