Morning and afternoon game drives around Kruger National Park. 5am – 9 or 10. 3pm till getting inside the gate by 6:30pm. This was a flexible arrangement as there were distractions that kept us out longer – such as herds of elephants surrounding the car, strutting hornbills, and any number of wildlife encounters.
Game drives in the middle of the day is less productive. Animal and birds seek out shady spots to sit out the heat and you do need to eat, upload photos to the hard drives, ….
My jobs all done and the pool beckoned. However even when going for a swim, the camera goes along. Just in case! Dripping taps and sprinklers are a bird magnet on a hot day. These are just some of the 20 or more species of birds that dropped in.
Just another day in the life of a Wildlife Artist!
