After siesta at our patio we are at the game area again.
Between Gwarrie Dam and Rooidam there are these two black-backed jackals.
They are glad that the sun shines again and seem to hate the mud.

What an array of very different sightings. It really does show Addo's diversity.

:popcorn:

yoda, those red bishops at the bird hide really were a challenge for me.
I had the zoom lens and when the birds were to close I couldn't get a sharp picture.
Others were on the gras in the wind ... I guess I need more training at bird hides. ;-)

The hyenas are really very special characters. I never watched hyenas such a long time as during this visit at Addo.

It is always great to watch the BBJs. The one walking in the mud soon disappeared in the bush,
but the other one lay down in the sun and didn't move an ear. :lol:

MM, I was surprised that there is such a variety on a rainy day.

From the area around Rooidam we have a nice view of the camp in the afternoon sun.

We have to return to Domkrag Dam and see what happens with the hyenas.
The elands and the cattle egrets are now closer together.

Image

We find a sitting hyena. :lol:

A second hyena comes down the hill and walks along the banks.

Mirror image in the water ...

They are so rare in Kruger, but are easily seen elsewhere.
