This is my personal fave because of the colours (and because of the patience and trouble this little bast... demanded :lol: )

I have two favourites....

Just kidding... I just love the expression on his face... It speaks volumes :)

My favourite is actually this landscape

I was waiting for my wife to finish up in the bathroom and just played with camera settings and tested a new 170-500 lens.

and then this bird.

In this case I actually tried to get them at the plant as there was a lot of them there and it was quite a sight...

That's a very nice pic, Baffers, but your "sunbird" is actually a white-eye (and leachy's is a whitefronted bee-eater) :wink: :)

Hello you all!

What a surprise (for a European), it also rains in Africa :shock: ! Bad? Not that much, it gives less usual pictures. I like this one very much as these waterbucks look so calm and proud in the heavy rain. It makes me think of how we, humans, run in all directions at the first little drops falling :lol: ...

Better viewed there: Big photo


And this one because it is so difficult to catch!
