Luck?

… often depends on the point of view.

In this case the Zebra was unlucky to be singled out by the Lioness, but it was lucky to escape the attack.

The Lioness was lucky to find some prey to hunt, but she was very unlucky to miss her dinner!

Slow, slower, slowest!

This is one of the few larger animals, which are slower than humans. Instead of running away the Leopard Tortoise defends itself by withdrawing into its formidable carapace.

It is the fourth largest tortoise species in the world.

The last …

This is my last wildlife image for 2021!

I took it this morning on a short game drive in the rain. As in the last few years I am enjoying the turn of the year with my friends at Pakamisa (www.pakamisa.com).

I hope all of you will have a great evening welcoming 2022!

The Beauty of GREEN

Today I was the first time out on the reserve after I caught COVID-19 mid of December. I took these short videos today to celebrate the beautiful green reserve after all the recent rains.

Enjoy the last days of 2021!

Birding Quiz 2022

To all my ‘Birding Friends’

Many people enjoyed my daily birding quiz in 2021 (but the past 228 quiz questions were only available on WhatsApp).

I have decided to make the quiz also available on Instagram and Facebook starting in 2022.

Just follow me on @christiansperkabirding and enjoy the daily bird picture and quiz!

Finished thinking!

Young Elephant bulls often have to think a bit before making up their mind what to do. Shaking their head violently before moving off the road looks intimidating but is nothing to worry about. It just means they are finished thinking.

Enjoy your last 2021 week!

A Penny for Your Thoughts

When I looked at this Lion image this old saying came to mind!

Have a good weekend 😊
