Oh wow another great looking big bird, and flying. Did you have a chance to get any pictures when flying? Must be quite a scene. Anna :)

Anna:I saw them flying,it's difficult to imagine the noise...,
but no chance to take a picture.
On this summer I will try again.

I love the way you captured it with the Sprinbok Andrea. Believe it or not, I have never seen one flying. :)

I've never seen this bird before. It looks beautiful, interesting and somehow proud.
