I love the colours of the brush type flowers Nkulu. :clap:
If our car is the only one, I think we may do a lot of stomping before we get to the hide in the hope that will make any slithery creatures disappear.

I always find the colours and patterns in the WFD's plumage so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this lovely photo Jan. :clap: :clap:

Nkulu, that must have been the MSCobra we saw Dec'15 making its way from the left hand corner right across to the other side where we found it. Reportedly, it sailed over the one lady's feet not making a move. :shock:
I love your photo :thumbs_up:

Jan, welcome back from my side :thumbs_up:
Wonderful photos of all our feathered friends. Stunning action shots. :clap:

Jan, I can never get enough of your Fish Eagle photographs, thank you

Kaapsedraai, I have to admit I did not even try to identify the snake :redface:
it was scary enough being the only person at Lake Panic :big_eyes:
