Good morning, thank you yet again for your wonderful response to my the last of my Wildlife images. Also a big Thank you to Kathrynlouise, Caziwinkles ,Brian17302 and Jukka (Kuvailija) for their UA's.
Today I share my humble offerings of some of the bird life we see in the Bush. My lead image was taken on our trip in January this year with my old camera. I need an ID please if someone can help. I will also upload a close up of this bird. We must have seen over 60 different bird species on this last trip, unfortunately only managed to capture a few which I have uploaded today as looking for animals took preference. I managed to get a few vultures in flight, my first attempts at bif images. They were circling above the dead giraffe waiting for the lioness to move away. I also managed to get a pic of a vulture sitting on eggs high up in a tree. Sorry there are so many images.
Have a great day, almost FridayGrinGrin

Where do I start Colleen ? What a wonderful collection of images, many of which I would like to see as an upload in it's own right, I can't pick a favourite but v18 made me laugh out load, the expression on the face is priceless, 17, 13, 10, 7, 5 , 2 & 1 are stunning. Superb.

A fine set, Colleen, v10 is a very well captured bif. A Bateleur eagle is the nearest I can find to your v1 but it is difficult to see the wing markings to be sure.
