… even if my mum is very short-sighted!

Young Rhino calfs’ eyesight is a bit better than that of their elders. This little one had a good look at us while his mother kept grazing.

One can almost see this young hyena thinking: ‘I wish I could climb trees’; as she was watching a Leopard eating on an Impala carcass while lying on a branch. Leopards often drag their kills into trees and Hyenas often trail Leopards in the hope to steal the food before they get a chance to lift it to safety.

On this occasion the Leopard dropped one of the Impala legs by accident and the Spotted Hyena got its share 😊.

For the last two months many bird lovers have enjoyed my daily WhatsApp bird quiz. In total I did 67 posts with over 200 birds to be identified. This quiz (#1) will continue for all who had signed up originally with various pictures and birds daily. If you are one of the recipients then you can ignore the rest of this message.

But quite a few people have asked me recently if I could re-start the quiz from the beginning so they get to identify all the 200 birds.

Well, here we go …
