Beautiful Kori Bustard in the yellow tall grass in Amboseli National Park

The sun striking the yellow grass and giving the Bustard a warm glow. This morning the Bustard was walking in the grasslands picking locusts, grasshoppers, dung beetles and other insects hiding on the fertile grounds of the Amboseli National Park. The Kori Bustar has a impressive size, with a wingspan up to 275 cm. Impressions from the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Lilac-breasted Roller sitting in the morning sun

Lilac-breasted Roller sitting in the morning sun

While driving around the Mara river on a early morning a pretty Lilac-breasted Roller was sitting on top of a bush looking for a tasty meal of maybe some insects, scorpions, snails or a meaty lizards. The Lilac-breasted Roller is quite a common bird but still the colors of the feathers still makes it quite a spectacular sight on the open savanna.

Here is a series of pictures from the Masai Mara river during the migration where thousands of animals cross the crocodile infested waters of the Mara river.
