Nicolene Marais is a horse lover by nature and likes to bring it over to children by taking them for an ‘equestrian ride’ at the Holdrift Farm in Napier, Overberg, South Africa.
Seemingly most bird photographers picture less common birds forgetting that bird species like the House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) are also photo-genetic.
This one always joins me while I’m having my cup of coffee on our verandah in the morning.
There is this couple somewhere in the outback of the village which I’m following now for some weeks (with consent of the farmer). I named then Jerome and Philomene and seemingly they are getting used to me for I can get closer and closer with my camera. Yesterday morning it was time for a portrait and they let me take the time for it. Thank you guys!
Blue Crane is the National Bird of South Africa.
After their holiday elsewhere the mousebirds are back in our garden
