Stunning photos Jan and RoelfA.

I think it must be the same pair of Fish Eagles that we saw at LP earlier this month Jan. They were on the far side, so photos not so good.

My first time to Lake Panic and posting on this thread, so I will test the water with this photo of an African Darter posing beautifully for me...
