My excuse for this one was that I was driving (the hazy white in the foreground is a bridge barrier that I had to try and get over...)

Wow, your seventh year already, that's impressive! Good to see you back in. That's certainly an unusual Martin picture. 😂

Enjoying your SA collection, @Tdgraves ! We'll have quite a few in common once I'll start on my trip photos. But then you also already have some regional specials. Looking forward to more.

Started off visiting Rietvlei and Marievale (with Peter Connan) and then stayed in various places in and around the Kruger NP.

Having made no progress at all on processing the KTP photos, I have just started on day one and picked out some birds. Therefore, the shots may not be the absolute best and I'll try and keep the commoner ones to the end, in case I come across better, but here are some to keep the thread alive...
