I see what you are looking at, it could be a fish eagle,( he was around that day) poor quality camera, and I cant zoom in enough to be absolutely sure, lets hear what the committee of 1 thinks. :hmz:
Also quite interesting, notice the giraffe all looking in the same direction- just out of shot a pride of lions with babies.
Excuse me Waterbuck , not trying to invade your extremely humorous thread. guess I will go back to the naughty corner again
I know it does not count here, but just for interest sake

We have found many a predator over the years just by observing herbivores :thumbs_up:

I've been out and about for the weekend and (once again) seems that :doh: there is anarchy on this thread. Forumites grabbing for one-pixel sized birds, not to mention other rules and regulations that have gone to the dogs. The committee (of one) is considering these matters and will be posting a report of the unruly behavior, together with some Order updates, soon.
I got myself a fiver this weekend, but sadly it was at a place I can perhaps only call a "game-ranch". It's at a well known filling station and I suppose that if it makes people more aware of game and the wilds, then its a good thing. Sad that the rhino's have been de-horned, but these are the times we live in :| Only had my cell with me for the pic, so not be best quality. Anyway - rhino, eland, ostrich, zebra and dagga.....there was a gull on the dam and a wagtail at the water's edge.......I'm sure :mrgreen:

OK friends, foes, Englishmen and Roman women...... :sup: :lotsocoffee: Image
I GOT IT :thumbs_up: -SEVEN SPECIES IN ONE PHOTOGRAPH.
I was out on Roodeplaat today and got this long distance pic on the shore of the conservation area. At first I though it may be a fiver, but was super existed when I counted the birds after downloading the pic at home. There was in fact a Darter on the rocks that flew off, which could have made it the mythical eight.
I promise the committee will be reviewing matters in this thread soon....... :whistle: :whistle:

Whoooooo :rtm: :rtm: :rtm: :rtm:
The masses have spoken (or they are jealous) :rtm: :rtm: :rtm: :rtm:
Need the committee (of one) remind you that we live on a continent of autocratic leaders........where rules are made to serve ones needs and broken to achieve ones goals....... :whistle:

I get a feeling I am on thin ice here...........fortunately I am a reasonable autocrat (is there such a thing?). It seems that some people are questioning the rules for multi-species pics that have been established through a democratic vote by committee members :twisted:..........

OK - all that aside. I am man enough to accept that my seven-species haul can be disqualified because it was not taken in a National Park (no, actually I am sobbing like a little girl :cry:). But since you people are friends and since I can't afford to loose members to this thread, I will accept this rule.

So lets review the rules:
1. Only animals count - no plants.
2. No dead animals or stuffed museum specimens.
3. People are animals, but they don't count.
4. The pics must be your own original shots.
5. Photoshop will be seen in the same light as peanut-butter and sardine sandwiches for breakfast.
6. Pixel sized or unidentifiable animals will be counted at the discretion of the committee.
7. Only pictures taken in South Africa National Parks may be used

Can anybody add anymore rules :rtm:

Hi there peeples - while we wait for BluTuna to post his amazing multi-species pic I am reflecting on my disqualified pic that was not taken in a national park. I'm still miffed, but I can bet all of you I am sitting in the best possible place right now waiting for BluTuna. Its a National Park in SA and my accommodation looks like.............this..........

Thank you NetEk and Sparrow...
Briefly 3 cheetah killed a springbok, Brown hyena came along and helped himself. As the squabble ensued 15 jackals arrived and one tawny eagle. Eventually the brown hyena disappeared over the dune with half the carcass and the jackals and tawny polished off the rest. The cheetah followed the hyena over the dune. I reckon they had plenty to eat before the hyena arrived though. Our neighbours from Urikaruus arrived on the scene just as the last jackal disappeared. If I did not have photos to show them I think they would have thought I was making the whole thing up...:)
