Okay, so I need to share one more, I know I am jumping the gun on some stories here, but hey, when an image speaks to me and demands to be shared, who am I to disagree? This image captures that which my dear mother (yes, the same one that sent along the care package with the nougat) most wishes to see in the desert...

Not spoiling anything by showing this now, I had numerous good sightings of these odd but majestic birds. Just liked the simplicity of this shot.

Thanks for the STUNNING pictures MxM! I can also not believe you are back from your trip! Time really flies! Can't wait for your TR to start! The Kgalagadi most definitely is a unique experience, and a wonderful place to be! :clap: :clap:

This TR is going to be ridiculously long, I have so many images to share, already over a hundred and only on day 3...

So, as I go along, I will start posting some that are from series of moments that have enough other shots to add to the real story later.

Traffic controller - there were at least 3 of these guys a day to be seen, many in the road.

Spike-heeled lark (I think - grey waders I can do, larks not so much)

The king of the royal sighting - this will be described in great detail later

Sociable sunset in VZR

It rained half the days I was there! Sometimes heavy enough to have my wipers on full go.

Some more to keep you going, almost halfway with folder 2 of 6...

This series of images from a 30 min period with these beasts pleased me
Image


Them females be mine - another easy find added to my list, even before CQ
Image


PCG having a bath - this is how much water was lying around one morning hours after it had finished raining
Image


Challenge still standing - I will need to return to get a more pleasing image of these magnificent beauties, but at least it is on my list now
Image


Challenge completed - I just had to find and photography this glaring omission from my list
