Some pics from this morning's drive along the Umzimkulu river.

Osprey
Brown snake eagle
Red-billed quelea
Nice pics, Frankmac! That last one looks more like a female Pin-tailed Whydah, though!

Lovely. Looks like the Chanting goshawk was more interested in the locust.

Great combination, I am using the same.
I still have a D7200 sealed in a box (2 years unopened) which is on standby/backup.
It is not much different to the 7100, only a better buffer.

Yes I'm very happy with this setup, great value for money.
