Some Wildlife; Eye for an Eye

For me wildlife photography is communication with the subject; not hiding the the bushes with a super telelens. But then … I’m not a wildlife photographer.

Pictures shot with an 18-135mm zoom lens.

Sometimes the eye for an eye approach does not work; Ostriches with their head in the sand or flamingos (first photo) with their head in the water …

A rare occasion

It does not happen often… maybe once per year if we are lucky. This morning we could see the Riviersonderend Mountains from our verandah in Napier; a distance of about 50 kilometres as the crow flies. Usually the mountains are (partly) covered by a haze.
