Rufous-tailed Palm-Thrush

I have been after this little bugger for a very long time and I have to say, the joy was great when I finally found it sitting peacefully on a Makalani Palm branch.

You know how you will have the perfect bird shot, but you either don’t have your camera with you or you have the wrong lens on. That happens to me sooooo often! But on this day, I was sneaking around taking photos of the staff at work, so I was equipped with all the right equipment. Success!!

Ek is al baie lank opsoek na ‘n foto van hierdie karaktertjie – juis omdat hulle net in Epupa voorkom, maar op hierdie dag het ek hierdie Rooistertmorelyster rustig op ‘n Makalani Palm se tak gevind – min gepla met hierdie mens wat so stil-stil nader gesluip het.

Enige iemand wat graag foto’s neem sal weet dat daar niks so frustrerend is as om die perfekte foto voor jou geestesoog te sien en of nie jou kamera byderhand te hê nie of die verkeerde lens op te hê. Op hierdie spesifieke dag het ek rond gesluip om die lodge se werksmense af te neem en het dus my paparazzi lens opgehad. Sukses!!
