Right peoples - I was not too sure of where to post this new topic. I also looked around and I haven't seen a similar topic - if I missed it, please accept my apologies and feel free to direct me to the right place.

I am starting this topic / thread where you can post your photo's in which you have been able to capture three or more species in one photo
Some minor rules if I may:
1. No, this is not for the botany guys - we're looking for three or more animals.
2. The animals must be alive :naughty:. Three or more live animals!
3. I know people are animals in all respects - but lets exclude people as one of the three animals
4. We're not looking for something like two mammals with a two-pixel sized bird that no-one can identify as the third specie.
5. Use your own original pics :redface:

I can think of some real easy ones - like birds at a birdbath etc. But there must be heaps of good pics out there with more than three species, or with interesting species combinations (what about something like a mammal, a reptile and a bird :hmz:)
I am going to open the account with this photo taken from Shimuwini across the Letaba River during my recent trip. It's a poor photo, but it features kudu, impala and waterbuck in one shot. Let's see what you have to add :cam: :cam:

If you think your picture is not of the best quality Waterbuck, look at this one! :tongue:

Lions, Zebra and Warthogs, taken somewhere in KNP in 2011 (SO will know where.) When I have time, I will look for more, I was lucky to find this one very quickly. :wink:

Great thread Waterbuck! :clap: :clap:

Hi hilda - thanks for saving the day :gflower:
I was starting to think there were no people out there with three-species-pics. Your's is a GREAT one given that it has a predator in it :thumbs_up: I really hope we get some more pics!!

Hi Waterbuck, thanks for letting me know about this thread :thumbs_up:

I'm upping the ante with 5 species :tongue:

Shot in the Kgalagadi but I'm not sure if it was Sitsas or Craig Lockhart water hole.

From Left to right there's Blackbacked Jackal, Red Hartebeest, Oryx, Ostrich and Springbok

Hi there one-photo-club members and prospective members

I don't have the mythical superpowers of a Mod, but I can list who has made it into the one-photo-three-or-more-species-club. Sad part is, we need more members. I'm sure many of you have pics with three or more species, so go out and find them:

Members of the 3-species club:
Waterbuck
Hilda


Members of the 4-species club:
Hilda (can you believe she has duel-membership :D )

Members of the 5-species club:
BluTuna (I did not even think 5 species were possible :slap: )

anne-marie, we're waiting for your pic :tongue:
