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:

Stunning photos Jan and RoelfA :clap: :clap:

Interesting Jan, I never realised that a FE would hunt a EG. No wonder that one is cranking its neck in. :lol:
