An African skimmer offered its incredible show barely 20m away which is quite a feat…
and caught something.
The same skimmer later passing by a crocodile, which I hadn’t noticed while shooting, and an egret.
A female waterbuck is teasing the male. She never ran away, just walked a bit, seemed to wait a little bit, then just at the crucial moment, walked again. And so on…damn, where did I see this pattern before? (cobe en français)
Big boy in the mud.
Stealthy hippo looking for coolness in the river. That’s all there was to see, the nostrils. I wonder if I couldn’t be spotted through the murky water…
This giraffe seemed to perform semaphore with its ears. It also looks like a toothless old man.
There was some water a bit further but it might have been too brackish so these elephants typically dug holes in the sandbank and drank from the fresher water coming up.
A Verreaux’s eagle-owl. I swear I didn’t add that trashy make up on the eyelids. It reminds me the glorious disco years of the 70’s. (grand-duc de Verreaux)
