In the last week have seen two series of images, in Birdlife Africa and Africa Geographic, of pythons catching and eating birds. So I thought I would post an image of a python catching and eating a Woodland Kingfisher at Lake Panic, (where else). Not a great picture, but something I have never seen before, so I guess it's "always keep a sharp lookout at Lake Panic"

JimS, firstly - well spotted sighting and secondly, brilliant pic which just shows one has to very alert and scan every single branch as the 'branch' might move... :D :clap:

Jan, welcome back and seemed you enjoyed another wonderful time in Kruger and specially LP. :thumbs_up:
The closest I saw a Giant Kingfisher was at the Nursery and was quite :mrgreen: when my friends who vist Kruger a month or two ago, showed me GK photos they spotted at LP. :D
You got some great action shots of this lovely birds. Excellent moment captured with reflection in water. :dance:
Looking forward to more.... :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:
