Final arrival at Lake Panic, in the Kruger National Park.

On arrival after yesterdays showing what was encountered on the way, we found a dam full of diverse birds awaiting us. firstly the hippo that approached closer to see who had arrived.


And another hiding behind the tree, if from us or the approaching family member , who knows, maybe they play “Hide and Seek” like us.


To the one side i saw the juvenile grey heron on a mission to capture food, a frog or two.

Not far from him (or her) a pair of cavorting African jacana a photographers dream with their colours and long toes, a great subject to have so close.

They even have a certain beauty in their reflection.
