When I was selecting, sorting and filing the images I took since I arrived at Thanda I came across a few pictures I liked very much, but which did not make it onto my blog at the time. So here are four of these “outtakes”.
The first is of a small bird trying to reach the pollen on a Mountain Aloe. It is a Long-billed Crombec.
The second is of a small Vervet Monkey sunning itself in a tree.
The third is of two juvenile Lions of the Thanda North Pride “staking” a Warthog across a waterhole (for the Warthog lovers among you: the Warthog was never in danger from these two 🙂
The fourth picture is of a bunch of Red-billed Oxpeckers riding on the back of a Buffalo. The Buffalos, like most large mammals, love the Oxpeckers because they eat the Ticks of their back.
I hope you enjoy this set of “outtakes”!
