Tanzania 11 a week of bird images from Tanzania. I am not usually a serious bird person but really enjoyed the behaviour of these birds on this trip.
Tanzania 09 This young lion was just hanging out. Looking at us, looking at her..looking at etc
Tanzania 08 These Grey Crested Cranes are a wonderful example of natures art.
Tanzania 07 We were watching the mother when these three cubs (of four) emerged out of the reeds to drink. Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania. Thank goodness it wasn’t the mother looking at me and licking her lips!
Tanzania 06 One of the greatest pleasures of my recent travels to Tanzania was getting time to focus on animal and bird behaviour. These three mothers, part of a herd of around 15 animals, are presenting the face of their collective care for their young. If you look closely you will see the vague outline of a baby who in an almost choreographed dance has moved back and under as the three matriarchs move together and forward. (touch our kid we break your face). This was a general first caution response we saw in a number of groups. If they were even more concerned another big mother would come forward with trunk raised and ears out. Watch the cars hit reverse fast when that happens. One learns to give them plenty of space. The collective maternal concern is very moving.
