yeah, time for the bird brains

on a termite mound right next to the road, dwarf mongoose on left and two unknown birds on the right. the one far right has its head turned away from the camera and the head fades into the tree.

better shot of the dwarf mongoose family, longer we stayed there more of the family emerged.

taken in Tarangire National Park Tanzania


K 5 II + Tamron 70 - 300 mm macro zoom 1:2

see post 4621 for bird id as Crested Francolin

You folks are posting some amazing work here! From the wilds of Lake Grapevine, here's some domestic wildlife. I'm pretty sure these mallards don't have to hunt for food very often

The rainy season has started, but these quail don't seem to mind.
