K-1 and D FA 150-450. The first two were tight crops the third was less.

First there were two.


One flew off and took the rest of the fish with it!


Then there was just one.

Elephant seals, females and youngsters. Scans from chromes. I'll eventually post more of these.

A very busy Potoroo. I had trouble getting a sharp photo in the dim light because he wouldn't keep still!

thought they were African Fish Eagles but our guide corrected me

Palm-nut Vultures Gypohierax angolensis

Palm-nut Vulture

aka Vulterine Fish Eagle

World Bird Sanctuary: Eagles of the World - The Vulturine Fish Eagle

we found them in the Selous Game Reserve

Lucky you! Still onmy bicket list, and they are rare in SA, confined to northern Kwazulu-Natal, though I am told there are a few residents in Durban.
Mousebirds, from a local municipal nature reserve

Hot and bothersome. You are right, we are blessed, even see them in a place like Rietvlei Nature Reserve, a mere hour away . Here's another of my visit there with WPRESTO way back in October 2018- Can't believe its been almost a year.
