Beautiful Jan! :clap: :clap:

Barry has been trying for weeks now to take a picture of one of them who comes and sit on the concrete wall as he looks through the window from the study, and as soon as he tries to take the lace curtains away to take a picture, he flies away only to return the next day. I said to him to open the lace curtains from 11:00 in the morning, so that the movement doesn't disturb him. He normally appears between 11:00 and 13:00 every single day. One of these fine days, we'll catch him on camera! :thumbs_up:

Jan, stunning pics of all the kingfishers. It just once again shows the rich variety of birdlife at Lake Panic. :thumbs_up:

I also love the Paradise-Flycatchers which is extremely difficult to capture on camera as they are just so busy. Excellent photo and well done. :clap: :clap:
