As this male Double-Banded Sandgrouse looked up at me, it felt like it was trying on some hypnosis trick. It’s eyes circles, it feathers circles and its body circular.
Sitting watching this pair I could but help thinking about how their monogamous family relationship was like, doing everything together, wherever they were in the National Park.
Thanks for supporting the National Parks Guy website, and allowing me to show you the amazing wildlife and landscapes in our world.
Some times even the guys like walking in heels… These Klipspringers make me smile. Living in and around rocks they have the ability to spring from on to another rock on slippery surfaces with ease.
They are small antelope and this male was part of a pair. He stood watch while she started grazing nearby. Team work!
Thanks for supporting the National Parks Guy, and taking a look at some of the amazing wildlife in our world.
The Kudu has long legs and huge ears that, just like a trumpet in reverse, allows this antelope to pick up the smallest of sounds.
Very shy, they often hide in the bush, almost undetected as they blend in with the surroundings so well. The male has huge antlers which look very impressive and a little white beard.
Thank you for supporting the National Parks Guy, and allowing me to bring some of my world into yours.
I think this is the ultimate caress. One Hammerkop affectionately caring for a his partner. How amazingly expressive and wonderful to see.
The Hammerkop is normally found near water, fishing, but this fine morning a gentle wake up and a cuddle were called for.
Thanks so much for looking as supporting the National Parks Guy, as I travel to bring our wild precious spaces to our rushed and busy lives.
The African Fish Eagle is such an iconic sight for Africa. Sitting in the tree, surveying all that goes before it. A huge raptor weighing over 2kg, with specially adapted toes for gripping slippery objects – fish!
When I spotted this one, it was over looking a dam, early in the morning and it still had it’s ‘bed head’ on.
Thanks for supporting the National Parks Guy, and allowing me to show you how wonderful our wildlife is.
This Goshawk has really turned out for the party. Lovely orange stockings and matching mask!
The Dark Chanting Goshawk as the name suggests makes a few sounds, mainly around breeding time.
Thanks for having a look at another print from the National Parks Guy. Your support is greatly appreciated as I visit National Parks around the world to bring the wild places to your walls.
