THE DAILY POST – THROUGH BINOCULARS!

As I returned from a town trip I decided to drive back home through iSimangaliso Wetland Park (Eastern Shores) and stop at a small waterhole. I only had my mobile phone with me so I took a few pictures through my binoculars.

In total I counted 15 different species, which came for a drink during the 20 minutes I stopped at the water.

Species list: Spur-winged Goose, Egyptian Goose, Yellow-billed Kite, Hadada Ibis, Blue Wildebeest, Waterbuck, Nyala, Warthog, Pied Kingfisher, Barn Swallows, Red-breasted Swallow, Black-bellied Bustard, South African Giraffe, Burchell’s Zebra, and Common Buzzard.

THE EVENING POST – MUD

A bit of mud on the horns makes one look so much more impressive 😊

THE MORNING POST – MUDDY FEET

I like this picture of an Nyala family with muddy feet on a cool, overcast day!

Enjoy your day 😊

THE MORNING POST – BOYS WILL BE BOYS

Adult Nyala usually fight very little. Instead they use a slow dance around one another to determine the more impressive winner of their comparison contest.

But young Nyala do what boys do – they have a little fight from time to time.

Enjoy your Saturday!

THE EVENING POST – CONFUSION

The situation in this picture looks a bit like confusion. Nyalas running one way and a Lioness staring the other way. But in fact the Lioness chased an Nyala bull, missed him and was now out of breath. The Nyala females kept going for a while.

Enjoy your evening!
