One Photo - 3 or more species!!

Unread post by Waterbuck » Thu Jul 04, 2013 5:00 pm

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:

I've never thought of taking pics with lots of species in :wall: what a wonderful idea. :gflower:

I've got pics at Malopenyana of buffs, wildes, zebra and a Kori bustard, all on the scene at the same time but not in one pic. :wall:

Here's one to start with, will look for more

Both pics in the river below a dry Kanniedood dam at Shingwedzi Nov 2012. The second pic the heron was mega cheesed because the hippo ducked and he flew off telling the hippo he was not happy :D
