Sitting right outside my window I couldn’t get outside before it had gone, although still got a nice picture trough the window
Perched high in the trees a number of Bee Eaters where alternating between relaxing and diving down catching insects
Yellow billed kite staring right into the camera. Perched high in blue gum tree this Yellow billed kite turned its head and looked straight into the camera.
Either a female or immature Cinnamon Chested Bee Eaters being fed with insects. Perfect day with clean skies and warm sunlight
Excellent view over the mineral rich lake from one of the southern view points
On a very hot February afternoon in Magadi the birds are standing still in the stale air that has the characteristic smell of sulfur from the mineral rich waters
In the last three years the Lake Nakuru water table has been raising and it have submerged quite a number of yellow fever trees that now stands as dark dead wood in the waters.
You will normally encounter the Hyrax on steep rock formations or in mountainous terrain. Generally a shy animal that is difficult to get close to.
In between the yellow fever trees close to the lake shore a beautiful Buffalo is grazing
The peak of Longonot where I have been training for bigger climbs over the years. You can clearly see the sharp transition from the higher altitude green fields to the dry environment lower in the rift wally surrounding Mount Longonot
Two zebras having an angry exchange and violently biting, kicking and bumping into each other
A Grey Heron sitting in the simmering heat at the shore line of Lake Magadi with its eyes closed
The zebra has horizontal elongated pupils that gives it wide angle vision even in sharp light when the pupil is nearly closed. This together with the eyes placed on each side of the head makes for close to 300° of vision. Very difficult to sneak upon a animal with that kind of sensory awareness.
View over Lake Nakuru from the Baboon cliffs. The same cliffs are also home to large families of Hyraxes
