So beautiful and still. Saw and photographed this Heron two days ago. He posed for me very obligingly!

These cheeky birds are completely at home on African Buffalo. Seen here on the face and back of a dominant bull with his attendant cows, in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

She’s got her hands full!

I watched this family for a while at the Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. The cubs scragged their mother until she’d had enough; clipped one round the ears and it was after that I took this picture. She can be seen telling them, in no uncertain terms, to behave themselves!
