Met some fascinating people at the Welsh Beekeepers Association 75th anniversary summer school this weekend.  Sat next to Professor of Apiculture Francis Retnieks, the leading bee expert in the country, and he was telling me about a bird in Africa
called the Honey Guide (indicator indicator) - a bird who guides African Honey hunters to bees so that they can eat the wax.  Nature’s a fascinating thing isn’t it! 🐝💚🦅🐦

@honeyguide__ newest single “She Was Music” is now available on @spotify and @applemusic 😃 This was probably one of the most exciting processes I’ve been through in a while and I’m super proud of the track, so I’d really appreciate it if you check it out!

This handsome chap is a Red-Capped Robin-Chat, previously known as the Natal Robin. They are the kings of bird call mimicry in Africa. Able to immatate everything from Crowned eagles to various warblers, they have been recorded immatating some 40 species. Commonly found in forests and thick woodlands along the East of South Africa.

Two of South Africa's more colourful little birds in one shot! The blue waxbill is in the background and the brightly coloured one in the front is a female green-winged Pytilia, previously known as a Melba Finch. These two bird species are often seen feeding together. .

Certainly not the usual photographic position of the Springbok. With their well known behaviour of prancing over 2 meters in the air, lying down is not what they are famous for! These athletic antelope prefer the dry arid region of Southern Africa, and are able to survive months without actually drinking water. They are able to get their requirements from the vegetation they eat.

An elephant and its reflection • This is my "hunting." Finding an animal, watching it undisturbed, and capturing a beautiful photo, and then watching it walk away is the perfect "trophy" to me.

Mountain stories by @honeyguideapps
Sherpas crossing ladder over the crevasse in Khumbu Icefall. 
Probably one of the most hostile places in our planet, this icefall is responsible for the most number of deaths in Everest. Literally, 25% of all the deaths have occured in this moving mass of ice. Standing on the foot of Everest, Khumbu Icefall is located at the top of Khumbu Glacier at an altitude of 5,486 meters (17,999 ft). Being one of the most active glaciers of Himalayas, the icefall moves by 0.9 to 1.2 m (3 to 4 ft) down the mountain every day. In the process, large crevasses open with no warning claiming multiple lives every year of mountaineers. 
However, hundreds of mountaineers conquer their dream of being on the top of Mt. Everest annually. While these mountaineers get success on carving their names on the book of history and media, there is a group of less advertised people, 'Sherpas' and yes, they will take you across the crazy life-threatening icefall. 
Sherpas are renowned in International communities for their hard work, strength, technicality and honesty. Yearly, they assist hundreds of mountaineers to the top of the world and back down. Due to their unique hemoglobin capacity and nitric oxide production, they are more adaptive to the higher altitude than the rest of the world. 
After working in the icefall during mountaineering season, these guys get back on trekking or climbing training for rest of the year. Some of them also run lodges and guest houses on the trekking route. 
Fun fact: The Sherpa you met during your trek who will serve you tea might have been to the Everest 7 times already.
To The Mountains!

This was the place of my first ever hike. Before I caught the travel bug. Before vet school. Before I was glued to my smart phone. Seven years later I found myself back here, amazed that I could fall asleep without benadryl in the middle of the South African bush, and that I could wake up naturally at sunrise without an alarm.  It sounds cliche, but have you ever tried to turn off your data on your phones more? And, if you hate getting out of bed in the morning, would you take a risk and be happier than you ever thought you could be by making room in your life for something else? Make room. The universe will fill it with exactly what you were made to be doing, and I promise that it will be something beautiful. 📸@beeboswell

Mountain stories by @honeyguideapps “Ophiocordyceps sinensis” or commonly known as “Yarchagumba”, is a caterpillar fungus. The traditional Chinese medicine believes that it is a perfect yin and yang as it is both the animal and plant. Found in the northern region of Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, and India, the caterpillar lives nearly 15 cm below ground in the alpine grasslands of Himalayas. 
With the staggering price tag of $30,000 per kg, these are one of the most expensive herbs in the whole planet. Why is it expensive? That is because it is extremely rare and has numerous health benefits.

Yarchagumba collecting has become very popular in highlands of rural Himalayas of Nepal. Although being a very risky job that invites several accidents, the attractive money is irresistible for locals. Since the selling bid is really high, these guys do everything they can to collect as much yarcha as possible every year. It has become so popular that it does not just engage adults but has also been the reason for many school kids to skip schools during the season of pre-monsoon (mid-May to mid - July). One sad thing is, Yarchagumba only survives in optimal temperature below 21, so climate change and global warming have been affecting their habitat. These caterpillars might become a lost history very soon.  Over the top, illegal collection of Yarchagumba is not helping at all. 
Have you ever tried these caterpillar funguses? Let us know.

To the mountains!

Honestly speaking, there is no complain to express the disappointment about the hardships of being a mountain worker. Not all the trips are smooth to accomplish but there is always an ultimate satisfaction provided by the experience even the shittiest things happen and that's pretty rare. I am happy doing this. One from Tsum valley, Manaslu region.

The twin dotted border butterfly is common in wooded Savanah along the East coast and north of South Africa. We saw this one at Jozini dam. With the good rains this year, I am sure the insect life will bounce back strongly in the coming summer!

I spy a couple giraffe 👀 These adult lions lead the resident pride of a reserve in South Africa. Being around them wakes up your soul. Hearing them call at night can rock you to sleep. This is my favorite place. 
Eternal gratitude to @beeboswell for lending me her lens!

Sunrise at Mt. Ama Dablam 6,812 meters (22,349 ft). It’s literal translation 'Mother’s Necklace' is derived from the fact that the ridges coming from the peak look like the arms of a mother holding a child and 'Dablam' or necklace comes from the shape of it's glacier.

Did you know that the @beargrylls became the youngest British to climb this peak? He climbed the peak in September 1997, at the age of 23.

Okay.. So I have learnt two things trying to photograph butterflies ....
1 - To try and take a macro shot with a 500mm lense is a bit hit and miss, but not impossible. I may need to invest in a macro lense! 💸💸💸
2 - Identifying butterflies is harder than I thought... definitely going to need to invest in a butterfly identification book! 😂

I think this is a picture of an African Veined White Butterfly, in the bushveld surrounding Jozini dam.

This Karkloof Emperor Butterfly finally sat still long enough for me to get a quick shot! Also known as the Pearl Emperor Butterfly, it looks very much like a big moth. When it's wings are closed it looks like a dead leaf, but when they open up the bright rusty orange and white appears! In South Africa you can find it in forests along the East coast.

The Speckled Pigeon, also known as the Rock Pigeon, is common throughout South Africa. They favour cliffs as nesting areas, this has made it easy to adapt to human urbanisation - buildings are a good substitute 😃 Definitely one of the best looking Pigeons! Agree?

The African Buffalo can reach a massive weight of 1000kgs. These peaceful looking chaps are considered one of the most dangerous animals in Africa. Causing over 200 human fatalities each year, it's a well earned reputation. .

Causing over 200 human fatalities each year, it's a well earned reputation. . . . . . . . . . #wildlife  #wildlifephotography  #animalphotography  #nikon  #photography  #dangerous  #holiday  #travel  #todolist  #animals  #wild  #wild_mania__  #southafricaza  #africageophoto  #southafrica  #honeyguide  #safari  #pocket_animal  #aboutsouthafrica  #animal_sultans  #ic_animals  #wildlife_seekers  #big5  #capevidal  #buffalo  #proudlysouthafrican  #menseselense  #instagram_sa  #thisissouthafrica  #wildlifeonearth 
You won't find any of these beautiful guys in South Africa at the moment. As the name suggests European Rollers migrate from Europe to Africa each year. Considering they breed in Europe it seems fair to call this their home. Their population has declined significantly over the last 20 years, mostly due to habitat destruction and ... being shot for food in some Mediterranean countries as they pass through on migration 😔 .

The White-eared Barbet feeds almost entirely on fruit, and especially enjoys figs! This explains their preference for the wet KZN coastal areas, with plenty of wild fig trees! They are often seen in family groups and love to perch in dead trees / branches.

Tidal pools can create the perfect contrast. An absolutely flat tidal pool - while the relentless waves of the sea continue in the background. Southbroom on the South Coast of KZN is a fantastic little coastal town, made up of holiday homes and a golf course! And at the right time of year - you get it all to yourself 😁

Over the past weekend we hit mkhuze game reserve. While visiting one of the awesome new hides, we came across this rarity. Not sure at first, we erred on the side of caution but after an ID session it turned out to be a harmless Giant Legless Skink... Great find ..it's not always the big stuff that matters. .

The African version of the piranha. The appearance of the Tiger fish doesn't leave much to the imagination. They pretty much eat what ever they can get hold of. Recent photo's have even captured them eating swallows in mid flight!!

Not 100% sure, but I think this is a African Veined White butterfly. This picture doesn't really fit the name, but the other side of the wings are completely white. Can any one help?

I thought it'd be good to follow up the last post with a picture of a Lesser Striped Swallow. You can see straight away it's a more slender bird, more stripes on the chest/belly and the rufous cap extends over the ears. Both are beautiful birds... when you can get them to sit still long enough to actually see them properly 😅

This Geater Striped Swallow was catching some early morning sun at Addo Elephant park. They are distinctly bigger ....and fatter 😀, than the Lesser Striped Swallow. They also leave South Africa for the winter, where as many of the Lesser Striped stay over winter. .

African black duck. These ducks are widespread across  South Africa but normally found in rivers and streams ..Not so much still water. They like to feed at dusk or dawn.. exactly the case her hence the higher ISO.

The Vervet monkey can drive you absolutely crazy... lock your tent.. close things up in boxes... but sooner or later you will turn your back and BOOM - all your food is gone!!! For this picture we were able to appreciate just how cute they can be.. because for once it wasn't our campsite they had raided!! 🤣🤣 If you are new to South Africa.. always worth asking if the monkey's in the area are a problem.

The Bokmakierie is ironically part of the Bushshrike family - they prefer open grassland and shrubs to thick bush. Named after their call, the Bokmakierie is endemic to Southern Africa.

The coastal path running south from Lulworth Cove is impressive to say the least. Bright green grassy meadows, dropping off into sheer white cliffs and the clear blue waters of the English Channel below. The beautiful Dorset coast line is certainly worth a visit. .

The Black-backed puffback is part of the bushshrike family and commonly found in Woodlands along the East coast and central South Africa. Their distinctive "Chick weeu" call is a dead giveaway. We spotted this one at the Orpen camp in Kruger. Not sure if we just got lucky, but the bird life in this camp was phenomenal!!

These Warthogs clearly didn't get the camouflage memo! Their red skin from the mud bath is standing out like a sore thumb in the new summer grass. Umgeni valley is a great venue for a day outing in KZN. Even better now with Howick Falls in full flow at the moment.

Even better now with Howick Falls in full flow at the moment. . . . . . . . . . . #wildlife  #wildlifephotography  #animalphotography  #nikon  #photography  #iamnikonsa  #travel  #todolist  #bucketlist  #southafricaza  #africageophoto  #southafrica  #honeyguide  #safari  #scenic  #aboutsouthafrica  #animal_sultans  #ic_animals  #wildlife_seekers  #umgenivalley  #daytrip  #greengrass  #proudlysouthafrican  #menseselense  #redskin  #camouflage  #warthog  #instagram_sa  #thisissouthafrica  #pocket_allnature 
The beautiful Orange-breasted Bushshrike is more often seen than heard, their clear distinctive call is one of those sounds that confirms you are on holiday at an awesome venue! These guys always seem to stay in the thick of the bush, making clear pictures difficult. This male obliged by posing at the top of a Fever tree in Royal Jozini.
