I have to search for hyaena pictures shot at the Sunset Dam, I know there must be some in my archive...
Superb shot of the heron sitting on top of the hippo having such a big catch, Wow!! :gflower:
The low flying hamerkop is another stunning picture, very well done Jan!

Thanks for sharing!

Best regards,

Rob

Lovely shot Jan! Lovely to see the Hamerkop flying into the scene!

Of course there are other forumites having Sunset Dam pictures (although not that many, it's a bit far from home for us .....some + 9,500 km.... :? )

Speaking about hyena at Sunset Dam, these guys were feasting on a dead hippo (in good 'company'.... :redface: )

Hi Jan,

Lovely three banded plover! These are such fine birds! Somewhere there must be a picture of a tbp in my archive with a nice reflection of the bird in the water but it isn't shot at the sunset dam, I think it was a the Shingwedzi causeway, another beautiful spot for making lovely pictures in the KNP... ( a new topic is born.....?)
Thank you for liking my hyena pictures, it will be difficult for me to keep the topic going on with postings just because I am not from South Africa and it takes a lot of investments on our side to supplement our stock of pictures....
Well, here is an another "tummy full" hyena picture :D

Best regards,


Rob

Hi Philip1,

Thank you for liking our pictures!
As far as I remember I shot the picture early in the morning, the hyenas were resting after a whole night feasting on the carcass :popcorn: :lol:
(it was rather cloudy so the light wasn't that good)

Best regards,

Rob
