Just catching up again Ronnie 8)

Lovely Longclaw, beautiful colours.

I do feel rather sorry for the poor wee mouse :( but very good sighting. :thumbs_up:

The colours are striking!
Fantastic photos Ronnie :clap: :clap:

Hi PJL :thumbs_up:

Often when one comes across one of these birds they will have their backs turned to you. :(

Only once after they have relaxed do they turn around displaying those striking colours. :clap:

Lionspoon I took the pic of the Longclaw at exactly the same spot you took yours :)

It may even be the same bird :hmz:

I have not often seen the stilts in Addo so the four-in-one shot was a special one for me :clap:

Early morning ellie sighting.
Soon after I had entered the park Saturday morning I stopped to watch this ellie feeding on the bushes in the background. As he was feeding he was slowly making his way up. I was the only one there and enjoying his company alone. When the ellie wanted to cross the road he turned towards my car walking past it on his way.
WoW what a sighting for so early in the morning.

Great photo Ronnie :clap: :clap: Such an impressive perspective having him so close... it's awesome when you're there first and the ellies make their way around your car.

And almost a self-portrait in the wing mirror as well :wink:

Might be the same bird we were chasing like mad, but the only IDable photo I got is of the youngster. :lol:

That ellie was kinda, uhm, close! :shock: But he didn't greet you with his trunk? :lol: :wink: :whistle:

Hi Ronnie. Oh those Addo elephants are so special - you don't have to get your car into reverse and speed away when they approach, but just sit still and don't get into their space. Magic. Will be going over to see my son and family in Australia for 3 months and all I will see is the possum that lives under the house, and some Koalas and Kangaroos in the koala sanctuary. I will visit the forum from time to time to enjoy the beautiful african wildlife. So enjoy Addo in all its wonderful glory! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
