This youngster's behaviour seems so unreal Jan! The bravest young Fish Eagle I have ever seen! You should receive some sort of prize for this magnificent sighting! :clap: :clap:

The Woody's are truly the sound of summer Jan.

My word but that Fish Eagle Mum is beautiful. She looks like she is wearing a beautiful designer cloak.

I think the youngster is begging mom for food Jan! After all his bravado with the Bushbuck, he must be hungry! :D

Beautiful Woodie, and great shot of "big mouth". :clap: :clap:

Stunning Jan :clap: :clap: :clap: with the reflection too.

I really love the Squacco Heron and have only ever seen one on two occasions. The last time was this recent trip of ours on the river loops north of Letaba. It was just too far for us to be able to photograph with our particular camera.
