Jan, the beauties of the veld. 8)

Ladybirder, that is very dramatic. :thumbs_up: It certainly gives another perspective.

Mischief, I am sure that it must have been so interesting. The Darters always look so reptilian when they are in action under the water. That is a stunning blue. 8)

Jan the FE also seems quite determined to show who is boss. Lovely shot. :thumbs_up: That is not a usual moment.
