I recently returned from a trip to Botswana. I enjoyed 16 days of safaris in the Okavango Delta region. I will try to post a few shots of my adventures over the coming weeks.
Thanks for looking and please enjoy.

Carmine bee-eaters, catching bees. I think he couldn't believe his luck, and neither could I.

Black-Winged stilt catching a water spider.

A saddle-billed stork, apparently has this fish jump right into its grasp.

These are all great, the bee-eaters are particularly impressive!

Loved them all. I wonder if the bee eater wasn't flipping the bug to eat it head first. I have a similar picture from Kruger. Guide told me they must eat it head first. Just wondering. The bee eater is a very special picture- thanks for sharing.

Thanks KD. Not sure what that was, but it fell off in the next picture.

Thanks. You may be right. This was the first picture in a sequence, and I didn't see the actual flip, although the bee was still flapping after he caught it.

Thanks Morris. I always like to start strong. I hope I won't disappoint too badly in the follow-up posts.

Glad you enjoyed them. It takes a lot of patience to get these images. Any many different trips to learn about the place and the animals.
