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 😊
PS: The on-going bird quiz posts are separate and have nothing to do with this page.
It looks like the picture on the right has been photoshopped, but it has not. I took these pictures of a Spotted Eagle Owl under the bright moon yesterday evening. Thanks to two of the birding weekend guests at Pakamisa for holding the spotlights to illuminate the Owl.
On the way back from a ‘Pakamisa Birding Weekend Owl spotting night drive’ we encountered this African brush-tailed Porcupine and its mate. It was quite relaxed and posed for a few pictures in the spotlight which is unusual for these prickly rodents. Its partner disappeared very quickly into the bush 😊
Two days ago we did a short night drive and we saw Spotted Eagle Owls, a White-faced Owl, Side-striped Jackals, a Bush-Baby (Brown Thick-tailed Galagos), a White-tailed Mongoose and a few Bark Spiders, who build every evening precision-webs to catch prey during the night.
The next morning they eat their own webs to preserve the protein for the coming night’s master-building session 😊
An ‘airborne’ Impala female in sprinting mode at Pakamisa! As with most herd-prey-species good photo opportunities occur once the flight instinct kicks in. If one of them starts running for whatever reason the others will follow.
I am participating in a another birding weekend at Pakamisa. If you are a keen birder and/or interested in photography then this is a great opportunity for an exciting weekend. Going on birding walks and drives with Ian is great fun! And I will be available to answer any wildlife photography related questions, not just about birds:-).
