Fortnight Lily, Dietes iridioide

Greater Blue-eared Glossy Starling, Lamprotornis chalybaeus

Rufous-naped Lark, Mirafra africana

Cape Giraffe, Giraffa camelopardalis giraffa

Citrus Swallowtail, Papilio demodocus

Rattling Cisticola, Cisticola chiniana

Cape Baboon, Papio ursinus

Long-tailed Paradise Whydah, Vidua paradisaea

You have a good variety there. All are very nice but my favorite is the baboon in the tree. That starling shot is awesome, too. Good job.

Very nice collection.  Nice shot of the butterfly as well!  When in Africa, I'm not patient enough to see the small things, I'm always on a mission to find cats

Nice set.

You proved the point why I prefer South Africa in February or March rather than October. Better variety of bird life and the landscape is green. However, I noticed you haven't posted any pictures of a solifugae. We had one popped over to our dinner table.

Thank you TM, it's never easy doing the small things with a  500mm lens.  Wild cats I can take or leave, domestic cats I would just leave.

Thank you Sean for looking and commenting. Surprisingly we've seen very few insects or spiders, especially spiders. Looked up solifugae and found it interesting, so thanks for that
