Zo te lezen een onvergetelijke trip geweest. En nog naast je camera gekeken? Ik had in Ethiopië in ruim 4 weken 1800 foto's....9000! Je hebt wat uit te zoeken.
Deze Hamerkop ook vaak gezien, maar nooit met zo'n mooie buit. Deze openingsfoto belooft nog wat voor de komende periode. In één woord: schitterend! Alles in deze foto is super!

you know your stuff. I've nothing to add except say my praise to this picture full of action and excitement. And you don't get to see a Hamerkop (=Hammerkopf in german) every day.

Hi Paul . It sounds like you had a good trip. I shall look forward to the picturs as you post them. This is an unusual name for a bird. This was taken with good timing from you to see it with its catch. Good detail and natural colours. well done TFS. Interesting notes too.

Aha een Hamerkop in Kruger. Die heb ik daar een paar keer gemist. Blij er eentje te zien. Blijer nog om dat moment te zien...
Heel leuke foto dus. Een prachtige momentopname.
Ach ja, natuurlijk...de in extremis trip naar Kruger. Had al gezien en gehoord van Robin dat de regen niet van de partij was...
De buit is natuurlijk de figuurlijke kers...
Bedankt en ik zit te popelen:-)

Hope you enjoyed your trip to us here in SA. Pity i could not arrange to meet you but i was very busy at work. Nice detail on this hamerkop showing the area that they frequent as well as the typical prey.

We also experienced the park to be very dry on our trip, but just as you had ample photographic opportunities. You were really fortunate to capture this great action shot. Looking at the frog front paws it looks as if it has says I give up. A great capture, with great colours, motion and composition. One always see the Hamerkop by itself by the water. Your capture of the Hamerkop with its catch of the day is really special and makes me a tiny weny little jealous. At the time you have taken this photograph I was back at work and could only dream of Kruger and all its beautiful animals and sightings. Thanks for sharing.

Although I have sympathy for European birds but like look at exotic birds. You managed to catch good moment. The bird is sharp and have clear colours.There is poor environment but in it light look very well.

Brilliant timing showing this Hamerkop in action and in beautiful light that's brought out the lovely colours of its plumage. Grat sharpness too and well composed.
TFS and regards, Ulla
