On the Hunt (?where is that contact?
Lens: Tamron 70 - 300 mm macro zoom Camera: K-5 II Photo Location: varioous national parks in Tanzania 
Posted By: aslyfox, 09-07-2016, 03:53 AM

these are some of the photos taken on our recent first Safari to Arusha, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti National Parks and the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania (East Africa) of various birds either hunting or looking for a lost contact -

"we present, YOU decide"

first set:

Pied Kingfisher Ceryle rudis (only kingfisher which hunts while hovering like a hummingbird)

http://www.robinsonlibrary.com/science/zoology/birds/coraciiformes/c-rudis.htm

I believe this is a female b/c of only one neck band

the photos of the kingfisher were at the extreme edge of my lens

second set:

Kori Bustard Ardeotis kori (largest bird that flies, males up to 40 lbs)

http://www.koribustardssp.org/

you can find more of our photos at

flickr.com/photos/pre69cubfan/albums

I hope you enjoy
