I love the spectacular African sunsets. But sunrises can also result in magnificent pictures. Last week I spent quite a bit of time in the mornings at Thanda House dam. This is my favorite sunrise image.
Giraffe necks are quite long and they use them efficiently for their own grooming. But looking at the overall animals their necks are too short!
Why? Because adult Giraffe have to spread their front legs apart in a very awkward and vulnerable posture to be able to drink. I have not seen any other mammal that has to do these sort of acrobatics to get a drink.
Conclusion: Their necks are too short or their legs are too long 😊
South Africa is also called the Rainbow 🌈 Nation because of all the different peoples and their cultures represented in a single country.
As I live in Zululand for over eight years I have been lucky enough to experience and photograph some of the traditions of the Zulu people. Here is a collage to celebrate South Africa’s Heritage Day 2020.
These pictures were taken at traditional weddings, other special occasions in the communities and at Thanda Safari, where Zulus from the neighboring communities perform some of their traditional music and dance for our guests.
Happy Heritage Day!
