Just thinking about SA Birds.
This is a Grey-winged Francolin. We saw several together in Lesotho not long after we entered that Country from the Sani Pass.
The story of the Sani pass will wait for another day.
It was interesting to say the least!
Now the pic above (or where ever it will be on the page, was only a half recovered pic but I was able to crop it. I have a limited range of tools at my dispersal at present. Until ican down load more software on my new pc.
So mainly pics will be raw except they are not technically RAW.
I am particularly pleased about this pic. The birds were spotted and then called in nearer to the 4x4 and one came really close.
Well the real urpose of 4x4 was brought home on the Sani pass both going up and coming down. Fog we would call it here in UK there its cloud cover!
LOL! I was in the passenger front seat and had to keep an eye out for Lorries as at each hair-pin bend there is little room for manouvre - sometimes there is a bit but you go very near the edge!
oh and a Hornbill - I grew quite attached to the antics of the Hornbills.
