2 hours ago

Luangwa Safari House’s ground-level hide was the perfect place to photograph birds. When sitting there one afternoon, I noticed that one bee-eater would always come back to the same perch after catching an insect. I decided to set up my camera facing the perch (this concrete stick) and just hold down the shutter whenever he left the perch or returned to it. Luck was playing a key role in this scene, but, sometimes luck is all you need to make a great photograph. While I was doing this, another bee-eater flew in and brought food for this one, who I assumed to be its mate. I held down the shutter and hoped for the best. In the end, I got a LOT of shots of an empty perch, but I also managed to get a few shots that I was really happy with, this being one of them.

Leopards survive on a variety of prey. For example, in some regions of southern Africa 80% of their diet comprises of rock hyrax. In the Kalahari Desert they are known to favour bat-eared fox. Leopards also eat fish, insects, reptiles, birds, rodents, porcupines, mongoose, baboons, genets and monkeys . . . . . #exclusive_wildlife #african_portraits #africa #wildlife #wildgeography #natgeo #nationalgeographic #wildlife_perfection #nature_perfection #wildlifeplanet #animalelite #wildeyesa #EarthCapture #NikonNL #wildlifeaddicts #wildlife_in_bl #wildlifeart #wildlifephotographer #zoomnl #joysafaribay #nfnl #WPY55 #wildlifephotographeroftheyear #animals #WNFnederland @featured_wildlife #yourshotphotographer @wildgeography @wildlife.hd #africanimals #onlyafrica #nfnl

Just after he had drunk the cows blood this Mursi man just sat and was so intent and watchful of us visitors. I couldn’t quite figure out what was going through his mind.

The lilac-breasted roller (Coracias caudatus) is a widely distributed bird in sub-Saharan Africa. These birds, which delight the eye with their colorful plumage, prefer savanna, shrub thickets or open forest areas. Climbing the topmost branches of trees or bushes, they look out for spiders, scorpions, snails crawling on the ground ⠀ Сиреневогрудая сизоворонка (Coracias caudatus) - широко распространенная птица Африки южнее Сахары. Эти радующие глаз своим разноцветным оперением птички предпочитают саванны, кустарниковые заросли или открытые участки леса. Взбираясь на самые верхние ветки деревьев или кустов, они высматривают пауков, скорпионов, улиток, копошащихся внизу. ⠀ #africantrails #amazingafrica #africannature #biodiversity #wildliferesearch #wildlifephotography #wildlifepictures #animalworld #bushexperience #lovewithafrica #africanmoments #wildtrails #african_portraits #wildlifeaddicts #onlyafrica #africansafaris #natgeowild #exploringafrica #birdwatch #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotographer #mashatugamereserve #zooworld #aves #birdwatchers #birdwatching #instabirds #ornithology #birdsworld #lilacbreastedroller

Shaking into art..This post is dedicated to @gerryvanderwalt. After my trip with @wildeyesa this November, I learnt how to take still photos and play with my camera to CREATE my version of photography. Thank you Gerry for the patience and passion you instill in me. I absolutely loved breaking from the norm and creating music and flow in my photography. For being able to look at a static subject and use different motions to play with. Travelling with you and @jonobuffey has changed how I see the world. I feel more educated about the wild. I got to meet the wildeye camp family and become family. Thank you @gerryvanderwalt for being one of the most inspirational people I have met. Your work and life ethic push me beyond boundaries. You are the epitome of the word passion. You break boundaries in the photographic world and its an honor to be your student. 🙏 God bless and see you in Svalbard. - - #wemigration #wildeyesa #thisiswhywildeye #lion #bigcat #bigcatphotography #bigcatsafari #safari #masaimaranationalpark #maasimara #gamedrive #safariaddict #wildlifeart #wildlifephotographer #wildlife_vision #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotos #wildlifeplanet #natgeokenya #natgeoyourshot #onlyafrica #wildlife_seekers #canon5dmarkiv #thedailydozen #capturethewild #rain #lioness #wildlifeconservation #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_seekers

An absolute privilege for me and my guests to see one of the biggest leopards in the northern Sabi Sands currently. This beast is known as Tingana by the locals and he is a monster of a cat. On this day my guests and I were responding to a sighting of a younger male known as Hosanna when suddenly our incredible tracker Mr freeman sported Tingana. We were so excited to have found this legend but our excitement got even worse when we realized he was following a female known a Thandi. It was an absolutely incredible sighting as Thandi was very aggressive with Tingana but didnt really want to leave his side. It was difficult to explain this behavior but nevertheless it was incredible to watch. On this day my guests where blessed with 6 incredible leopard sightings with 6 different individuals. What a day. I must say that I am particularly very lucky with Leopards and whenever I am around they seem to come out and play. I need to mention that during my last recent Big Cat Safari in the Sabi Sands we saw more leopards than we saw elephants. Now thats how you do a big cat Safari. I am taking bookings for next year. I have two spaces available for Julys 2019 big cat Safari. Book before its too late. This safari will change you forever. #everything_animals #allnatureshots #animalelite #splendid_animals   #canon #wildlifephotography #wildography #wildographyandsafaris #wildlifeplanet #capturethewild   #wildlife #natgeo #ourplanetdaily #bigfive #leopard #bigcats #destination_wild #natures #naturephotography #safari #photographicsafari #southafrica #animals   #africageophoto #igs_africa #wu_africa #majestic_wildlife_ #onlyafrica #africanamazing

Все дороги по Уганде, связывая между собой бедные деревни, очень яркие и колоритнее. Для меня было самым большим удивлением -это количество людей на этих дорогах! Из за отсутствия общественного транспорта они ходят пешком, в школу, на работу, тяжело катят по холмистой местности сильно перегруженные велосипеды или сидят в битком набитых грузовиках. ⠀ Женщины несут поклажу на голове- это и связки хвороста, канистры с водой или плетёные корзины, несут всё, даже что то маленькое, даже небольшой пакет, но его будут нести на голове. ⠀ Поля- на наших просторах уже не увидишь людей, в таком количестве, работающих вместе, так как вы видите на фото- у них так везде, я ни разу не видела трактор! Люди с мотыгами тяжело работают на пашне или собирают чай на плантациях, чаще женщины, где в слинге сидит за спиной малыш, и при этом все они одеты в яркие одежды, как на праздник... Пока женщины работают - их старшие дети в школе, а младшие играют сами, прямо здесь, рядом, вдоль дороги, часто в канаве или на обочине, где в метре от детей, часто годовалых малышей, пролетают колёса грузовиков... ⠀ В путешествии меня не столько трогала грязь и бедность, сколько дети на обочине дорог... ⠀ #elenahappysoul_uganda 🇺🇬

Durante la época de apareamiento, los machos de Ñus establecen territorios y persiguen a sus rivales para impresionar a las hembras. Es de las pocas especies que han visto aumentar su población en los últimos 50 años, ganándose el título de uno de los animales más duros de la sabana. Son capaces de detectar tormentas a 40 km de distancia...así saben dónde habrá buenos pastos para alimentarse. De ahí que sean los protagonistas de la mayor migración animal del mundo. During the mating season, the wildebeest establish territories and pursue their rivals to impress the females. It is one of the few species that have seen its population increase in the last 50 years, earning the title of one of the hardest animals in the savanna. They are able to detect storms 40 km away ... so they know where there will be good pasture to feed. Hence, they are the protagonists of the largest animal migration in the world.

I love how curious giraffes seem - the sound of my shutter and they’d look up, stare at me, sometimes peer from behind a bush as if they thought they were hiding. My favorite was the two times we saw giraffes necking (fighting) and they stopped when they noticed us. Mustn’t fight in front of the homo sapiens! 🦒 #giraffe #wildlifeperfection
