Sept. 6

Greetings and welcome to this week’s photos from St. Lucia, South Africa. It has been a good week with some good sightings. Lots more white rhino spotted with some unique behaviour observed, as seen below. A great walk we had today with some kids from an orphanage we visit. They absolutely loved the walk, and even took some amazing photos with the volunteer’s cameras! We got to walk pretty close to some zebra as seen in the photo, so they were quite excited. Tomorrow we are taking them on another walk around a trail in the woods near St. Lucia. The strike is finally ending here in SA, so the kids are back to school at last on Wed. after another 3weeks off, as the teachers, doctors and just about everyone else in the country returns to work! Enjoy the photos!

  4. Totally amazing photos, as always. Really love the sunrise … did the red sky indicate a really hot day??

  5. Hello all. Yes the sky was that colour, it was amazing, quite the sunrise. That will be a great painting, glad I could help! I don’t think it indicated a hot day…it was only really colourful for a matter of minutes though! Gotta love nature.

  6. As usual your photos are amazing. I love the way the rhinos decided who would have the shade. Keep safe.

  7. good to see the important folks are still on the job.
    din din seem wonderful. the colours on the Barbet are almost as great as the pileated at the Island,
    Images are still out of this world.
    Keep it up.
