Beautiful shot Kaapsedraai. I am pretty sure that we must have seen the same juvenile and parent when we visited LP.

Lovely photo Jan :clap: :clap:

Thanks for sharing this with us all. :thumbs_up:

LP will be seeing us again at the end of the year, :dance: unfortunately not for long as we will be on our way to Letaba. We will be back in the south over New Year, but staying at Biyamiti.

I just love popping in here every now and then, enter the hide and enjoy all the scenes from Lake Panic, imagining the sights and sounds. Beautiful! :clap:

(Except the snake Kaapsedraai - that is just SCARY!!! :shock: )

Thank you for all the contributors - it is always a joy to come and sit with you in the hide! :D

On a visit to Lake Panic in November 2015 this little drama took place.
The Blacksmith Lapwings had three little chicks, when the Fish Eagle arrived, the Lapwings started dive bombing the Eagle.
