So this week I have some pictures from an amazing sunset in which I did not actually see the sun setting! But the wildlife around the estuary was fantastic. Hippos coming out of the water…lots of crocodiles swimming and lounging about, goliath heron, gray herons, purple herons, egrets, fish eagles out fishing, pied kingfishers out fishing, started out sunny, then the rain came suddenly, it was just an awesome sunset at the estuary. The next day we went for a sunrise shoot down at the estuary with the photography volunteers. Low tide provided some excellent reflections of the sunrise which was really quite nice. The next set of photographs is from a trip the photography volunteers took part in with a couple of wildlife researchers. We went into iSimangaliso Park and walked through one of the amazing ecosystems found there, the swamp forest. We were looking for crocodiles as part of their population dynamic study among other things. We ended up hooking a couple large crocs just to see, as they were already tagged, recorded their location and moved on. We came across some hatchlings less than 2 weeks old, caught them, weighed them, marked those that had not already been marked. It was a very interesting and exciting trip walking through the stream with the crocodiles!
