My colleague and I went for an outing to explore the surroundings of Port St John's. We parked our car and I took the picture with the cow and the view of the First Beach. Then we took a stroll away from the car, till a young man came running and told us that some boys were touching our car, apparently trying to steal it. As we hasted back he told us that he had finished school and made some money by fishing, selling the catch to the restaurants in town. As we came to the car we understood that he also had another business idea – the supposed-to-be-villains were around four years old!:blah:SoI took a picture, for future identification, andour hero got a ten rand reward for notifying us.:lol:

And I got an opportunity to improve my bird pics - this time bringing my A*200mm and the 2XTC giving me a 400 mm f5.6.

These are great, Kjell. I love the story of the kids and the car and the sign. We should post those signs here in the U.S. and all over the world.

Thanks for the nice comments! Even though I'm very happy about the kingfisher shot, the sign is also my own favourite.

All are good, but the lighting on the last one is striking - almost three-dimensional.
