And some duplicates, just to finish off Mashatu. We saw many more species, but did not capture them all on camera. Some of these are duplicates which I have posted before, from KTP or elsewhere, or I posted a proof shot and now I have betters shots. Others I just forgot to look at the other pages of my gallery before posting.....

I'm afraid I can't take credit for that @@Peter Connan as I was using the 5D that day. I'll pass your comments onto the OH!!

Your sociable weaver in the “arrivals lounge” image above seems as though the photographer was waiting for the same flight.

The sense of intimacy with the bird is remarkable.

That ISO seems all too familiar to me!

Lovely. I saw my first Half Collared Kingfisher in Kafue this September but I didn't manage to get a photo - well done.

@@Soukous we had to ask the advice of the other guide re. ID as it was so dark (+1 1/3 ev) it didn't look like any of the pics in the book.....
