Where is the mr. green smiley. Stunning pics, especially the sunrise and Dikkop. \O

Think you got the snake id right, but I've only ever seen one. The markings on the chin look similar to the one I saw though. \O

Still yet to see the sparrowlark, Great sighting and pic. \O

The sunrise is awesome. Your other pics are also awesome but the sunrise is just that bit more awesome than the others.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Pentax K20D and a Sigma 170-500mm lens, nothing special. 0*\

Is that the old 170mm to 500mm or the OS 150mm to 500mm. I have the old 170mm to 500mm and it’s a nightmare with no IS. :shock:

It's the old one without IS BC. \O I revert to using a beanbag. The camera has a built in anti-shake but I keep it off, as soon as you try panning shots it confuses the IS and it makes the pics worse. ;-)
