Kruger – A Vulture at a time

Today we saw Cheetah, but the Picture of the day was this Lapid Faced Vulture that was drying it’s wings and carrying on like a schoolkid on rasberry cordial. A Fun sighting at a Waterhole

Kruger – Goliath Vs Goliath

Another magical day in Kruger.

So many animals interacting.

Here’s one of an Elephant and Cape Buffalo taking exception of each other at a water hole. The Elephant won!

    Hooray for you, but the baby elephants are still leading in the voting. For all of the trouble you had getting there, sounds like things are turning in your favor. Keeps those photos coming.

Kruger Park – Day 4

Today was a little overcast, eggs buy yet productive.

We had three Safari drives, generic one in the early AM (up at 5:31 and out the gate at first light 6:21), one in the late morning and early afternoon and then the ubiquitous afternoon drive.

We interacted with Elephant, Hyena and many other species of mamal and bird.

Todays image is from a Hyena den that we discovered not far from the camp. There were three babies being guarded by a couple of females (At least one that was suckling). This shot shows one of the guards prancing around with the skin of a dead animal, playing with the small ones. Quite the scene it set as they ran around.

More tomorrow and enjoy!

Cheers,

    a luta pela sobrevivência, entende-se é certo mas também faz pena ver o animal já sem vida na boca da hiena! uma excelente definiçãoReplyCancel
