Jan, what a clever Darterand guess it might have lost quite a bit of fish in the past :lol:
Stunning Fish Eagle action :cam: - not an every day angle of same which makes it special :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just look at those claws and can see that a fish has no chance of escaping :shock: :D

The EG's looking on while Jacana coming in to land and guess putting up some noise in the process :lol: :thumbs_up:

Thank you for sharing. :thumbs_up:
