Stunning sunrise Jan :thumbs_up:

This thread makes me want to sit at Lake Panic and enjoy the events that may or may not develop. In past I have always spent a few minutes then left in search of the 'big five'. Your images capture the essence of Kruger beautifully and have opened my eyes to the stunning birdlife that I have overlooked during previous visits :D :D :D

Beautiful shot of the heron Jan. The early morning light just catching its belly feathers. I have read all about the golden hour and that is a perfect example. Hopefully our holiday in Dec/Jan will allow us to experience and photograph something similar. :hmz:

Very interesting photo of the crocs nose and then just one tooth peeping through the water to remind us of the 'hardware' that he carries. :shock:
