I took my family also on the twitch to Leeuwpan. Having arrived a bit late (a wrong turn off) at 06:20 we eventually saw a group of vehicles at the edge of the dam. <!-- s:o --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_surprised.gif" alt=":o" title="Surprised" /><!-- s:o -->

While driving towards them along the edge of the dam, we saw all looking towards us. After a quick stop and look around we saw the gull setling close to us on the dam.<!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

This helped us to get a few good shots despite the gloomy conditions.





We had to leave soon as the kids were getting difficult and my wife had to return to Pretoria to play league tennis. There was at least time to have a quick picnic at Maryvale along the way home with a few more windy photos.<!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

I eventually bought my Canon 100-400mm on Friday afternoon and this was en excellent opportunity to break it in. <!-- s8) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8) -->
