Jan, absolutely stunning photos...the 2 Rollers together, their colours are so beautifully captured.
The hunting croc sequence is quite breath taking....I almost felt those razor sharp teeth savaging those fish.

Outstanding Jan...take a bow :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Wow the dinosaur really truly shows white survived when many didn't. Incredible shots of a mighty scary creature

What an appetite. That croc is going to grow into a real monster. It doesn't even have to work for dinner.

Thanks Jan. :thumbs_up:
