Aufmerksame Story-Gucker haben vielleicht gestern gesehen, dass wir so langsam nach Flügen Ausschau halten 😇 allerdings erst für Ende 2018, vorher muss der Schimmel erst mal gesund werden 😌 der große Urlaub im März/April steht nach wie vor etwas auf der Kippe, das machen wir davon abhängig wie schnell das Bein verheilt. #herzenspferd#travelblogger#nachderreiseistvorderreise
Red-faced mouse bird 📷
So here's a bird I'd not even seen properly and certainly never been able to photograph before. We had gone to a bird hide purely to have lunch and get some shade and wasn't expecting any photo ops especially as the hide was high up and far from the river but then this odd looking bird appeared with a few friends and fed for a while on those fruits you can see. You can also see what a fab little gymnast it is; gold medal in the Olympic rings competition for sure.. 🥉😀
This is for @biquette.13.. See J, birds DO have arms.. 😂
“The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?” #protecttheelephants
Vultures are a vital part of the eco-system. The ‘King’ of vultures in Africa is the impressive Lappet Faced Vulture. Its wingspan is close to 3 meters, it weighs up to 10kg and stands 1 meter tall. Sadly, their numbers have declined drastically due to poisoning of carcasses in and outside the Kruger National Park. It ‘cracks our nod’ for one of the Big 5 birds in Kruger.
