Can never get enough, amazing photography!
Reader Joe Dickinson sends some photos from Africa; his notes are indented. There are two other sets of his Africa photos in the queue; they’ll appear presently.
Here is a set of photos from the western Serengeti, where we finally caught up with the rain.
Wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) and other ungulates often are accompanied by cattle egrets (Bubulcus ibis) that forage for insects disturbed by the grazers. Note the thin layer of new green growth, a sign that rains arrived a few days earlier. The largest wildebeest looks almost tattooed on the face and forehead. I’n not sure if those are normal markings, or perhaps scars?
This black-faced vervet monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) was on a tree just by our porch at the last “camp”. I’m not sure if he is eating a flower or a fruit with remnants of the flower still attached.
