It is Spring here in the Bushveld. It is the season for new life.
And so I glimpsed this beautiful scene just outside my bedroom window… one of my favorite bird species is the African Hoopoe (so called for his cry…) Scientific name: Upupa africana
There was a young pair of them on the grass. They are searching for some juicy worms in my lawn (of which there seems to be a lot of!)
They are moving so fast that it is difficult to capture them on a photo! When the male found a nice fat worm, he immediately hopped over to the female, and gave it to her. This is where I am getting frustrated with my telephoto lens- am missing some sharpness in the photos- sorry!
