This bird , one of a pair I spotted during our stay at Kwando Reserve Botswana. They were passing dragonflys to each other. I had to slowly approach these reeds at the waters edge to get close enough to capture the action with a 600mm lens. I managed a roll of film before I was informed that the crocodiles in the Kwando river ambush unsuspecting prey along the riverbank, this hastened my exit from this photo opputunity!
