I decided to post my favourite

African bird images this week.

The African Harrier Hawk had posed

long enough for us and was off.

I believe this to be

Northern White Crowned Shrike.

Captured at

Sausage Tree Safari Camp,

South Africa

 

 

 


 

A Red Breasted Weaver

entertaining the breakfast crowd at

Elephant Sands,

Botswana.

I’m not sure if it lost purchase on the thorns or not.

However, one second it was hanging from the thorns ,

the next, plummeting groundwards.

Whatever the reason, I managed

to capture one frame of

its headlong dive.

warmth

the quality, state, or sensation of being warm;
moderate heat

In early December 2015 I took up the offer

of a day trip to Sydney with the Camera Club.

 

Although the sun was out I didn’t think it hot.

However, this photo shows part of

the Manly Beach crowd on that weekday.

Sydneysiders obviously disagreed with me

and thought it warm enough to warrant

a splash in the  sea.
