Love the green-backed heron, great action shot. :cam:

You managed to get the Subset dam hippos lined up in a row - just ears and eyes sticking out. Love this pic. Seems you were having fun, Jan. :dance: :)

That is when one enjoys Kruger - capturing the 'moments' , but also be able to recognise them.

It is indeed a another great 'moment' being captured which is most enjoyable to watch. :cam:

Thank you for sharing, Jan. :clap:

Stunning and beautifully captured!!

Sunset dam is our favorite place to end a day (enjoying an sundowner when it was still allowed) and nowadays enjoying a ice tea. And to watch the sun disappearing with all the rays of colours painting a perfect landscape. Sigh!

These Yellow-billed storks had become synonymous with the Sunset dam.

Low flying stork...beautifully captured, Jan. :cam:

Just love to watch them at the 'Dam'. :thumbs_up:
