These photos build on the story started by Christine. We too were driving to Olifants when we noticed the activity in the water as we crossed the bridge. This being one of the few places where you are allowed to get out of your vehicle, I took advantage of this and using the rail to support the 600mm lens was able to obtain these shots. Always wondered how it happened.

Wow
by: Jenny

Another wow sighting and great pics, its not easy balancing a 600m lens on the railing that much I know. Well done Bob on getting these great shots of crocs in action. I like the first pic with that lovely colour in the crocs mouth. I wonder how the Giraffe died.

It was from this same bridge some years back, that we saw a giraffe trying to cross the river and a hippo kept chasing it back to shore, unfortunately we had to get back to camp as it was gate closing time so we may have missed the rest of the action, but there was nothing there the next day so I hope the Giraffe made it back safely.
