Love Florida!

All the comforts of home!
Amazing to watch this female, as she leaves her tiny chick in the nest, and heads out to some nearby trees for some nest building materials.

Africa / Tanzania is a wonderful location for raptors. At this dried up river bed, in Ndutu, we saw 3 Tawny Eagles feeding on 2 wildebeest carcasses. We did wait around a bit for the birds to get comfortable with us, as finally we were able to catch some feeding and a few flight shots.

Superb looking bird, seen on this day with 3 different colour phases, a blond, medium brown, and a dark brown bird. Fun photography while the lions were sleeping in the shade.

A female lion sees a limping Zebra in the distance., covered in blood from her last kill she looks toward another meal.

A beautiful last light scene, so we were able to get ahead of her for an incoming view.

Love and respect nature.

Just booked!

I am back south on Wednesday morning, up and gone around
2:30 am! Hope I get a couple hours sleep!

Here is a shot from our last tour to FLA, a Red-bellied woodpecker taken near Orlando. This bird was preparing its nest right beside a dock used for fishing boats. About 12 feet from the dock!

We were standing as still as possible, the woodpecker carried on with its business, virtually ignoring us, and doing quite a nice job cleaning out the bottom of the nest hole.

Hoping the Purple gallinules are busy in nesting, and maybe some spoonies nesting to at the alligator farm at St. Augustine - just north of our hotel a few hours drive! We should see some wonderful coloured plumage, and so many birds!

Should be fun with the D850 this time, a great birding test for the camera. - real nature in superb Florida!

Looking forward to all the tolls too! (ouch!) .

Another Kill?


Pretty awesome to see such a creature in the crater - 22 kms round hole in the ground, 600 meters deep, filled with lions, jackals and hyenas, - and this hare lives a good life!


We were lucky enough to see a nearby jackal come over for a peek at a possible lunch. Our sweet hare perked up, and escapes the predators view - quick enough to help make it realize that the hare was fully aware, and in total defense mode.


With knowing the speed of the hare, the jackal backed off, and saved energy looking for something else to suit it's needs.


Not a live kill, but equally interesting enough to witness!
