While I love this blog, I now pretty much only write on my other two blogs: BirdingBlogs.com and 10,000 Birds - I would love to see you there!

Gotta love them baby hippos

Up close and personal. the joys of digiscoping.

Wow, very impressive shots Dale. i love the close-up on the zebra!! But the baby hippo is cutest. I guess you are enjoying your time over there...

Dale Forbes said...

enjoying it would be a silly understatement!

Africa - and in particular the savannas of Kruger National Park - are a digiscopers dream!

yes, I DO love those baby hippo's. :) They seem so cute!! I think I need one for the pool just as long as mama isn't with. :)

The others are fantastic close-ups too Dale. I like the colours in the sunset one.

I had a fantastic trip with Andrea the following week to Pilansberg and made his dream of seeing a caracal come true. I was so pleased for him that he was able to see one at last.

Sorry, forgot to say the one of the lizard is best of all. LOL!! What a great shot!!

I'm loving these. Such a great tease for me and exciting to think I may get to see these amazing animals in March with Joan at Kurger. The lizard is marvelous.
