Lovely birds moments once again, Jan :thumbs_up: :clap:

A rare one at LP, considering these Yellow-billed storks normally congregate at Sunset dam.

As always beautiful images captured at Lake Panic,thank you to Jan and Kaapsedraai for sharing.
We were there this past Saturday at about 3.30 pm and an African Darter gave us an amazing performance.We have never observed their water antics before! Completely awestruck.

Kaapsedraai, super image of the Yellow-billed storks. I do associate them with Sunset dam. 8)

Jan, you must have been thrilled to see the Purple-crested Turaco. I had one visiting a tree next to my bungalow every day when I stayed in Skuks in March. They really are strikingly beautiful birds.
