“Sighting of the Day in the Bush”
|This type of chameleon lizard takes on the appearance in its surroundings, as in the case of the tree in this photo. We’ve seen it in this same spot every day for the past week.|
A few days ago, while Tom & Lois were still here, we made our usual drive to the river to search for sightings beyond Marloth Park’s fence into the Crocodile River in Kruger National Park.
Each time we find several cars lined up at either “Two Trees” or one of many lookout spots along the river road, we knew we were in for a treat. The enthusiasm is often generated by lion sightings, much more than for elephants, cape buffalo, giraffes, and others.
|We couldn’t believe our safari luck in getting these photos.|
|It was quite a sight to observe her bloody nose from eating her kill.|
|Every so often, she’s stand to investigate her surroundings.|
|Was a male lion in the area that would steal her kill if he spotted it?|
|Lois’s last time feeding the kudus was yesterday morning before they departed.|
Photo from one year ago today, November 2, 2017:
|Tom got this distant shot of the Montezuma Oropendola, which is a New World tropical icterid bird. It is a resident breeder in the Caribbean coastal lowlands from southeastern Mexico to central Panama but is absent from El Salvador and southern Guatemala. For more photos, please click here.|
