30th Wedding Anniversary

Four years ago we experienced

a Hot Air Balloon lift off for our

thirtieth Wedding Anniversary.

The Northern White Crowned Shrike

was captured while visiting

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

Sausage Tree Camp

forms part of

South Africa’s

Greater Kruger National Park.

The African Harrier Hawk posed for us

for a few minutes before it thought it wiser…

…to take to the air as gracefully…

..as it could.

Both birds were sighted

while staying at

Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

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.

As much as I would love to be able to

take some portraits/people shots

I prefer nature, landscapes.

At least nature, landscapes cannot

critique one’s work or object

to it being displayed.

Nature’s jewels.

The best image after waiting,

in near sub-zero temperatures,

for a heavy fog to clear.

Sighted in South Africa, 2013.

 

Seagull

One of my all time favourite images

 

Dawn on Corio Bay

Earlier this year I managed to capture this image.

My focus was on a rising sun to the left.

For some reason I glanced right and had

a far better sight to capture than the ho hum

sunrise it turned out to be.

~~~~~

Technically probably not the best photo,

however, I think it is very close

to the top of my favourites list.

Sunset Silhouettes

These are some of the sights which inspire me

to roll out that bit earlier or stay out later.
