Wow Charbel! Stunning pictures of the little Marico Flycatcher! What a beautiful little bird it is! Actually all the Flycatchers are very pretty, in fact all birds are! :D

I love your selection of Blue Wildebeest pictures! The Red Hartebeest are stunning antelopes! :clap: :clap:

And then the cute little Steenbokkie! :dance: :dance:

Dear Meandering Mouse,
So good to have you here following the TR. Remind me that I should also complete the KNP TR.
Fortunately, we will have some Bat eared foxes later, alive and kicking!

Cheers
Charbel

We were quite happy with the equipment. Next time, in KNP, I will buy additional equipment, but the pics were already much better than in our previous KNP trip.

The nodding head is a must!

Cheers

Wonderful start to your KTP trip - and your photographs are excellent.

I believe that the solitary wildebeest bulls are in fact not territorial , but have been kicked out of the herd by a new generation of dominant bulls - but I stand to be corrected. :thumbs_up:

And your leopard sighting on the first day :dance: :dance:

Hi Anne-Marie
They are lovely. Steenboks are challenging. Always on the verge of escaping...
