Thank you, Jan ...looking at the weather forecast,,, I will try. :D

Lovely Hamerkop pic coming to land. This one thing about Sunset dam, the birds nice and close and with the open space allowing one for time to prepare for a shot. :thumbs_up:

Let see what Kruger has in stall on this trip. :hmz:

Ai Jan, your pics make me want to pack my bags and trek!!! I am sure this has been asked before but, if you don't mind telling, what equipment do you use?

Lovely close up of the YB stork, Jan :clap: :clap:

Currently at LS and weather gloomy. Not good for bird photography. The dam is also quiet, I counted about 5 scattered YB storks and no sign of our Diderick nor the Pieds. Hope for a better day tomorrow.
