Even behind the branches it's a great shot, Michele. ^Q^

And the sunbird looks as if it was about to drop down. -O
God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.

Nice flight shots Michele. \O

The branches in the Lanner pic add to it to give a sense of movement. \O

I had a quick visit to Rondevlei on Sunday ...it was extremely windy but I discovered a sheltered spot behind a hide. There was quite a lot of traffic flying past...

I am not sure why the heron had to fly so far for her building material..she was nesting right next to the reeds..
Thanks again Flutts...:)
