I love to take pictures of Giraffes at sunset 😊 Due to their heights it is not too difficult to get a good silhouette shots even if it is not always possible to leave the vehicle and lay on the ground to get the best angle.
Yesterday evening I was looking for a pride of Lions in the western parts of the reserve. The cats did not cooperate to be found so I decided to take a short drone video of the beautiful Thanda Safari scenery in the rolling hills of Zululand!
Some colors appear a lot in nature and some colors are rather rare. This is a picture of one of my favorite small birds. It is a Violet-backed Starling. The male features the most magnificent iridecent plumage to attract the ladies.
If you think this effect was accomplished by using photo editing software then you are wrong. When I took this shot I faced the sun above the Elephant which created the rainbow 🌈 effect through my lens. I thought I share this lovely ‘bad picture’ anyway.
A bit of flora for a change: Proteas are South Africa’s National Flowers and besides Roses they are my favorites. Whenever I do a photo shoots at lodges I try to have these impressive plants in the pictures.
