  1. Ciconia ciconia Trio Landing Photographed at 4:28 pm on 7 February, 2014 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens. ISO 100, 1/200 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure. ***************************************************************************************************** In eight safaris in Kenya, this distant glimpse of several Ciconia ciconia, White Stork, is the only occasion when I've ever seen this species. During extended stays in Europe I never spotted a White Stork. Although no bundles delivering infants were observed, it was satisfying to see a species which had been mentioned in my childhood gracefully landing in the savanna.
  2. The Black-crowned night heron Nycticorax nycticorax is a beautiful medium sized black, grey and white heron. Usually during the day these birds roost in trees like this one or in reed beds only flying out at dusk or early in the morning to catch fish, frogs crustaceans etc. This species is found along rivers and in freshwater and coastal wetlands throughout much of Sub Saharan Africa as both a resident and a winter visitor from the Palearctic, it is also found from Southern Europe across Southern and South East Asia and also North and South America. This one was photographed at the Momella Lakes in Arusha National Park in Tanzania
