Day 3 had us driving all around the Seronera region of the Serengeti. Another stunning array of wildlife and landscapes...

Birds from the day:

1. White-Backed Vulture in acacia

4. White-Bellied Bustard (mis-heard from our guide as White-bellied bastard - good for a laugh in the vehicle!)

Since I'm limited to 7 on a post, you'll have to check out the day's photos at: https://flic.kr/s/aHsk​z8fQgo (external link) including a Tawny eagle making short work of a snake. :)

Holy cats. The Lilac-breasted Roller is a mulicolored beauty. I'd love to see more of him. Great shot does it justice.


Keep 'em flying,

Really well captured Brian, like the pygmy falcon.


Canon R5, RF 800mm f11. RF 100-500mm, RF 24-105mm f4.

I like what I like.

They sure ARE pretty! And when they fly, there's a pretty iridescent blue on the backs of their wings!

Isn't he just the cutest, bird? Hard to imagine him ripping into a rodent... ;)

Cheers!
