๐Ÿฆ NEW FOR BIRD LOVERS ๐Ÿฆ

@ChristianSperkaBirding

Many of my birder friends have ‘complained’ that most of my photography posts at @christiansperkaphotography are about mammals and only a very few about birds.

I have therefore decided to start a new Instagram account @christiansperkabirding and a new Facebook page http://www.fb.me/christiansperkabirding where 100% of all posts will be about birds.

Please follow either of them and feel free to share this information with anyone else who might enjoy my wildlife and bird photography. Thanks!

I will also create a ‘Birding Read-Only WhatsApp Group’ with the same posts in case any of you are not using social media but still would like to receive the picture posts. Just send me a message and I will add you to the group ๐Ÿ˜Š

PS: The on-going bird quiz posts are separate and have nothing to do with this page.

NIGHT DRIVE

This Verreaux’s Eagle Owl was very relaxed when I encountered it on a night drive in Kruger National Park. I love the pink eye lids.

Location: H1-5 – On the railing of the bridge over the Olifants’ river.

FLYING HUNT

This Southern Carmine Bee-eater was hunting when I took this picture.

A lot of patience to capture this fast flying bird on camera. S-100 road near Satara Rest Camp, Kruger National Park.

WEATHER

Just as a major rain storm approach I ran into these two Cheetahs on the S-50 near the Mopani Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park.

A few minutes later the sun was gone and I could hardly see the road in the heavy rain.

SNATCH!

One Nile Crocodile was trying to snatch a fish out of another Crocodile’s mouth.

Result: They both missed the fish ๐Ÿ˜Š
