:clap: :clap: :clap: Jan

Wonderful action captured of the Squacco trying to catch something to eat. :clap:

Also enjoyed the hippo moment, which also brings back memories. :D

Elephants bathing as seen from LP must be an amazing sight - brilliantly captured. :thumbs_up:

Then the sunrise scene with silhouette - I can just sigh, wish I can be there one winters morning. :D

Thank you for the wonderful photos. :dance:

Stunning fly-by of the Fish Eagle, Jan. :thumbs_up:
You let it look so easy, but believe me it is not and great photography :clap:

The Goliath with its nice hairdo beautifully groomed and eyes fixed makes for beautiful portrait :dance:

Thank you for sharing. :thumbs_up:

Seems we might miss each other this year.... :hmz:
