Jan

Kind words. Thank you.

Many fantastic pictures on here. Your sandgrouse landing is superb!

Still wading through my pictures. Here's a couple more - southern yellow billed hornbill and swallow tailed bee eaters

AVIATION IN ITSELF IS NOT INHERENTLY DANGEROUS, BUT TO AN EVEN GREATER DEGREE THAN THE SEA,
IT IS TERRIBLY UNFORGIVING OF ANY CARELESSNESS, INCAPACITY OR NEGLECT.
