THE EVENING POST – COLORFUL

Male Black-necked Agama intensify their blue color if they are excited 😊 I love the strong colors on this specimen.

Have a good week!

THE EVENING POST – THE LEBOMBOS

As I drove back home after a photo lesson this afternoon this beautiful scenery presented itself. A Giraffe family in the foreground and the Lebombo mountains as a backdrop in beautiful winter light. Thanda at its best!

Enjoy your weekend!

PS: The pictures were taken with my iPhone.

THE MORNING POST – ROOT

Eugene, a good friend of mine is member of a music band called ROOT. He is currently producing a series of short videos featuring tracks from ROOT’s album ‘Under the Marula Tree’.

The music is composed to symbolize African nature icons (eg sunrises, Lions, Elephants, …). This very special album is available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer for streaming and download! https://root.hearnow.com/

I gave ROOT permission to use my pictures and videos clips – mostly taken at Thanda Safari – to create music videos.

I really like the first result. And more are in production! Enjoy this African Sunrise 😊

THE MORNING POST – QUIET

Sometimes it is better to be very quiet and to make not a move. A herd of Cape Buffalo had chased a pride of Lions around and this Lioness went straight up into a tree. The Buffalo could still smell her but not see her.

The herd spent hours around the area and the Lions had to wait in the trees until the Buffalo had departed!

THE MORNING POST – GOLDEN HOUR

What a beautiful example for the special light during the golden hour. I took this picture yesterday evening just a few minutes before the sun was setting.

Enjoy your day!

THE EVENING POST – ONE MINUTE

This is a speedy one minute Thanda Safari with a herd of Wildebeest on the way to having a drink at a waterhole.

Have a good evening 😊

THE MORNING POST – SMELLY PUPPIES

It was a long time ago when I took this picture of 15 cute Wild Dog puppies. Whenever we tracked Wild Dogs in the past we could smell them before we could hear them or see them. They are cute, but very smelly 😊

THE MORNING POST – ID?

Most of my posts are about mammals and birds regularly seen on Thanda Safari, my home and work place for the last eight years. But today’s post is about some of my rarer pictures taken over the last 20 years in Southern Africa. Can you ID them and can you tell which two of these five mammals occur on Thanda, even if they are seen very rarely ?

Let’s see who gets it right 😊
