24 June 2012 – Here’s looking at you.

We left Olifants at 6.00 am and took the S44 and S46 to Letaba.

Giraffe in the early morning light.

We had a break at Letaba and then took the H9 to Phalaborwa. A waterbuck crossed the road in front of us.

Just before the turn to Sable Dam I said stop....no not a leopard, but a wonderful good bye

Here’s looking at you :wink:

Or is this looking at you.

Quote from Peter Steyn, author of “A Delight of Owls” in the latest issue of Wild Magazine,

“Whenever I hear the crescendo whistling call of the diminutive Pearl Spotted Owlet, I know I am back in the bushveld, which has always been my spiritual home. I vividly recall my first sighting of this little owl one morning as it was pursued by several small birds before alighting on a branch. As I focused my bimoculars on it, I was puzzled because it appeared to be looking at me yet suddenly turned its head to reveal a further two piercing yellow eyes. I had initially been looking at its false eyes, large black spots on the back of its head.”

How about one each

Here’s really looking at you

Or is this it
