2C. Kruger National Park, South Africa 2014 -2C Dams and Hides.

Kevin and I always enjoy sitting near a dam or lake and watching the animals and birds. Jason and Mark were also happy to sit and watch and started to get more interested in the birdlife to be seen.

Sunset Dam, Lower Sabie.

There wasn't a lot of water in this dam but there were always hippo, crocodiles and birds around.

This crocodile tried to sneak up on the Squacco heron but was noticed. The Egyptian geese and blacksmith lapwings then started 'shouting' at the croc.
