Thanks +George Marquardt, their fighting was very impressive to observe but they moved so quickly that I found it impossible to capture them on camera. Have a good day!

An African long tailed or magpie shrike

The Magpie Shrike often performs co-operative breeding, with the breeding pair and some helpers, usually young birds from the previous brood.
The male drives away the rivals, but the boundaries of the territory are established with calls and songs. The Magpie Shrike feeds on arthropods, ants, termites, grasshoppers, mantises, millipedes and large grubs. It also takes lizards, mice and fruit and berries. Fresh and rotting meat is also eaten.

Thank-you +George Marquardt , it was concentrating on the grasshoppers and smaller insects that flew around. The birds are usually either on the look-out for food or forever preening themselves (particularly if you want to take a photo) :)

Watering a self-made boat in Zanzibar

I always marvel at the clever craftsmanship of African children. They don't have many toys, so they make the most ingenious ones themselves. I was watching this boy as he tried out his self-made sailing boat in the shallow waters of low tide. Even though the photo was shot with a cheap point-and-shoot at the time, it remains one of my favorite captures. For

African wild/painted dogs at play in Kruger

On my last 10-day visit to Kruger, I was lucky to see and observe three different packs of wild dogs. The dogs depicted below were members of a particularly active group, which went off into the thickets to hunt but returned again to pose for me soon thereafter :)

Fishing companions

On an early morning outing I observed these two fishing companions - a saddle-billed stork and a hammerhead - at the rapidly receding water of a waterhole. The saddle-billed stork was more successful but every so often a fish would escape his searching bill and then the hammerhead would pounce on it.
