As a wildlife photographer most of my subjects present themselves at daylight or in the crepuscular hours and the night is therefore not my favorite photo time.
But as a field guide I enjoy the reaction of my guests to the excitement of a night drive under the African star-light sky with sightings of Owls, Nightjars, Thick-knees, Coursers and other non-feathered night creatures.
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.
