These African Jacanas looks quite docile and can run over the plants with their very long toes, but I was quite surprised to see how they can go at each other with hammer and tongs and beaks and wings and feet

Noelcmn took us to a relatively nearby nature reserve, I think it was Rietviei, when we were in SA. I forgot to charge the batteries for my MFT camera, so if mostly used the Sony RX100M6 which has a 28~200mm FF equivalent zoom, but the stonechat is small and it was not very close, so 200mm FOV was not nearly enough.

We saw superb starlings several places in Kenya. Enough that I began to ignore them as a subject.

Although I saw a dolphin and some type of a hawk today, I didn't get pictures of them. The hawk was at a distance when I was sporting the DA20-40, had a long tail so probably a coopers hawk, I saw the dolphins as they went under the bridge, but I got some GBH photos.

I'm gonna report you to the Moderators BASIE

Visited both Faerie Glen Nature Reserve and Rietvlei Nature Reserve yesterday (There to collect two lenses after a bout of LBA) . Had'nt been to Faerie Glen before, and despite the rain, it was very nice, and well worth another visit sometime. Short hikes and they've recently introduced some game, including these Impala


And a Bishop was displaying-enjoying the free time from duty at his church

Love the little zebra.

Toad singing - well, making a noise - in hope of attracting a mate. Actually, the trilling of toads is a welcome, happy springtime sound. SCAN

More from Rietvlei=A very brief sighting of an Eland crossing the road, before it disappeared into the long grass.


The long grass hiding a Waterbuck


But not the Bontebok


The Zebras were in a cuddlesome mood

K-3 DA 55-300 PLM
ƒ8, ISO 100

From where I was sitting I could see this bird flying back and forth from a nest hole, storing food, which enabled me to get multiple shots of a behaviour being repeated over and over again. Which made it possible for me to document the whole behaviour.

How to get food it you are a nuthatch?

Find a branch from where you can evaluate the landscape.


Look up.


Check the nearby bushes for competitors.


Look down... oh boy goodies.


OK, going for the goodies...




Pay dirt.
