Once again, thanks to all of you for the comments!! \O

I had a goodish day in the park today...good bird life and strong winds! ;-)

First up today a Red-billed Buffalo-Weaver

Image

The Barn Swallow's were all on the deck. :-? First time I have noticed this, they all sat there until you almost drove over them. -O-

Image

Not a lifer for me, but the first time I have been able to photograph a Grey-headed Bush-Shrike from my car.

Image

A Carmine Bee-eater

Image

And a juvenile CBE.

J-Lee made me stop and go back for a Tortoise, unfortunately it had been in this position for too long and was already somewhere else...

Image

A European Bee-eater

Image

Here's looking at you...

Image

A Carmine Bee-eater busy regurgitating a pellet of indigestible insect remains.

Image

And finally, an Impala ram quenching his thirst.

God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.
