Lake Panic sighting gallery

Unread post by Jan van Wyk » Fri Jan 01, 2016 5:50 pm

Back from Kruger and spend many hours at LP. It was very warm and some days over 40deg...but with all the wonderful sightings ... :dance: :dance: :

The Fish Eagles were very active and got some superb images. This years chick was not so brave but he kept us busy with some great photo opportunities. I missed out on a Leopard killing a Bushbuck but witness a once in a lifetime scene where the Croc Boss suddenly chasing the other crocs....looks like breading season... :hmz:

Hope you all will enjoy all my wonderful sightings and the images..... :dance: :dance:

Lets start with one of my best posting landing shots of this year young Fish Eagle .........

Image

Happy New year to all from the LP gallery :gflower:
