Great shots Phil. Nice to see some unusual content from what we get in the UK.

The photos taken from below the nest and about 15m away, were with the Canon 40HS SX.

The mum Ibis leaves the nest during the day, searching for food and returns early evening.







Superb wildlife action shot's Phil,many thanks,take care of yourself.

Regards.....John.

Hi Phil.

I hope you are continuing to make a good and full recovery from the traumatic surgery you received no so long ago.. After all, having a good pair of running legs must be essential where you live!!

Personally running is not one of my strengths, and I doubt a hungry lion would be kind enough to sit and listen to me explaining that I came to Africa just look at him and admire how wonderfull he was... LOL.. So I will settle for re-reading Wilbur Smith...

The photos you take are about as near to Africa as I am ever likely to get, so thank you for posting them here for us to see..

Cheers John, most kind

The little Ibis is not frightened of human contact and seemed quite happy for me to be there. I was mindful not to get too close, placing the camera on the end of a long straight branch and disguising it with leaves. The rest was guess work, trial and error. I will keep a look out for the mum and dad Ibis. They sometimes visit the ponds, so I might be lucky in getting a photo of them. They love to announce their presence with a loud Haaa-deee-daaa shriek!

Elephants, Zebra, Lioness, Gazelle, Wild Buffalo, etc are due out from editing.

Thank you for your support.

Phil

Good morning James,

You would be surprised at how the human mind can tap into 'Fright and Flight' when it is needed, casting off the stick and gingerly making a rapid exit

Wilber Smith is still very popular for the youngsters as essential reading. We keep his books

I am not yet 100% after the op, but am doing my best. The past few days have been a struggle, I think due to the humidity and altitude. I am looking forward to my return to the UK in August and the summer
