An excellent close-up, Herman. At least you are warned of power cuts, ours just happen as and when, no warning whatsoever, so no chance to be prepared Sad

An excellent photo, Herman. These birds nest on the ground, and dive bomb you if you approach too close to them when they are sitting on eggs. They can do considerable damage if they hit you, as they have long horny spurs on the "elbows" of their wings, to ward off other animals and people. When the youngsters are a few days old, and still unable to fly, the Kiewiet parents feign injury, and stagger comically on the ground, to lure you away. Regards Martin

Wonderful capture. Superb detail showing on the bird. Hope you enjoy your 'teach' days. It must be such a problem to keep having power cuts. I'm hoping that it's not going the same way as another country that has the same problem with power, water supply etc etc etc. In the mean time just enjoy the sunshine and put in solar units everywhere.

Glad I heard elsewhere about this one I missed. He is smashing, and you say he is common over South Africa. Too attractive to be common. What a beauty he is Herman and you have him under a microscope. First time to my eyes. A real delight. TG
