Thank you for the kind comments and welcome back.....appreciated :thumbs_up:

LP was very quiet and it is may be that time of the year.........but there is always something to see and photograph... :clap: :clap:

a Fish Eagle landed on the left side and the local Fish Eagle chased him away....may be it is the juvenile from December.... :hmz:

Light was not good but still a great sighting.. :dance: :dance:

I love the Greenbacks with their beautiful colours....stunning photo thanks Jan.

That a very perk Giant for the day. Thanks for sharing. :clap: :clap:

Nkulu, I certainly hope that snake is helped to find alternative accommodation before I get there. You must have been rather wary.
