Jacana's are such nice birds. I am always amazed by there giant feet ! But those huge feet and their light body almost allow them to step on the water. This "lily-trotter" always lives on the wet zone, and swamps amongs the nenuphars and other aquatic vegetation, looking for some insects or litle frogs to eat. It have a large range of distribution in Africa and it is a very common bird, but it is alway tricky to get a nice shot. Actually I was so proud of this one, thanks to the #Canon1DXII and his amazing auto-focus ! .

Hippo hippo... What a massive animal ! It seems like is one of the most dangerous animal in Africa !? Before you see one in reel it is maybe hard to understand, but I guess it is true, this powerful animal can really hurt you if you are on his way. His not that friendly look that it give you anyway advice you to stay away and enjoy his beauty from a good distance. Small birds are allowed, they clean it from the parasites.

This image is the conclusion of an incredible scene I saw in the wild. We were following this female leopards in the South Luwanga National Park at night. She first climb to a tree, after few minutes we heard a noise up in the branch, and some bird bird flying away ?! Seems like she miss a hunt... She came down, walk around and climbs to an other tree. After around 20 minutes without any noises we thought we lost her... but we heard again some noises up to the tree... we spot it with our light and we saw her with something into the mouth, that was a Helmeted Guineafowl !!! She quietly get down the tree with her fresh meal into our her mouth... What an incredible skill to climb on the tree 20m high without a noise to catch a bird ! Have you already see that ?

Let's change a bit of continent for a moment. I hoped you enjoy to discover the amazonian biodiversity on the past weeks. Right now, I don't know why but I feel like I miss Africa in this cold this times. I reviewed some of my archives to share with you some nice pictures of this wonderful continent. I start tonight with a nice chameleon, the only one I saw in my life 😅... That was in Zambia in the incredible National Park of South Luwanga, where I was leading a photo tour for my first time in Africa. That was a life changing for me... Since then I want to go back to Africa every year.

The lonely fisher...
I remember this early morning on the sandoval luguna in Peru, paddleling quietly in my canoe. The ambiant of the fog was making all the form in the landscape as it was an illusion. In the middle of this magical scene, this lonely fisher, an egret, was standing like it was at this right place on this very moment, out of the time.

Where is your mama ? 😅
That is the question you ask when you are surrounding by this litle caimans. They are so cute and looks so armless... but the mum is always arround so you might be careful.
This is something I really love and make me feel truly alive be into a prestine natural environnement. You are so in admiration in front of the all the life form you are fascing at but in the same time all your senses are also very sharp and accurate because thoose places can also be dangerous. No celphone, no helicopter it is only you into the wilderness... for that reason you need to be one whithin it.

Photography is all about light... Even a classic scene or a comon animal can be magnify by a beautiful light. So whenever the wildlfe photographer is on the field and the golden hour shows up, he begin to be excited and anxious at the same time. Sometimes you can have a stunning light but no subject to plays with and sometime a very nice subject but a crappy light. That is the game we play, nature photography ! But sometime with determination and luck, you can have both of them, like with this picture of this Ardea Alba. I like the global atmosphere due to this very last golden light in the background. Do you like it to ?

Tonight I try something different that I saw and like on some other post : a picture split in two. Let s follow the trend and try no ? 😅... I think this image of a the glass frog and the ant fit perfectly with this kind of post. What do think about it 🤔?

Feel like I am in a parrot mood thoose day, for that reason I want to share with you a last picture of thoose wonderful bird family. Today is a Blue-headed Parrot (Pionus menstruus) flying very fast. Same technic as the macaws before, low shutter speed and you "try" to follow the movement of the bird. It is quiet hard to get first the good focus on the bird and second the good following with the camera. I took 300 pictures to get one like this 😅.

This a picture I really like because it is an enteressting behavior of blue macaw. I already told you on a previous post about the "colpa", usely a clay cliff where the parrots come to eat the clay, because they need minerals. Here they come to find thoose minerals into the dead palm trees, which is very rare. This a very special place in a kind of swamp, quiet hard to get there and you need to watch out for the anonconda's who lives there. Macaws don't come everyday, but when they come it is a magical spectacle.

Macaws are one of the jewels of the amazonian rainforest ! They stand very hight in my favorite birds, intelligent, beautiful, and they have some very interesting behaviors. Macaws stay in couple with the same partner for their all life, you often see them flying by couple or some times in small group, it is very rare to see one alone. They are very loud, so usely you heard them before you see them. Near by the claylick in Tambopata National Park in Peru they are hundreds of them coming to eat the clay. That was a nice practice for me to try this kind of picture with very low shutter speed (1/40 - F22). I hope you like it.
