"*Burchell's Coucal"* - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Kruger National Park, South Africa

Hello friends - time for Wildlife Wednesday! Celebrate biodiversity by sharing photos you've taken of wild mammals, birds, reptiles, insects etc - use the hashtag #WildlifeWednesday and see what others have shared as well!

This bird was warming up in the winter morning sun - a rare sight to see out in the open. I captured this photo close to Punda Maria in the #KrugerNationalPark  back in 2011.

"Legend Approaching!"
Black Rhino
Somewhere in Africa

Spare a thought for a species in peril. Black market demand for their horns (nothing more than keratin, the stuff hair and fingernails are made of) in the East is causing poaching syndicates in Africa to wipe them out at alarming rates. The horn sells for more than gold and platinum combined per ounce at the moment. More info:

"Canine Yawn" - AFRICAN TUESDAY
African Wild Dog/Painted Dog
Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

Good morning! It's time for another round of African Tuesday and we are running with an OPEN THEME again today, which means anything goes as long as it was taken in Africa. To participate, simply tag your posts with #AfricanTuesday  and be sure to also tag the +African Tuesday page for inclusion in the weekly Top 5 selections.

The African Wild Dog is one of my favourite animals to observe and photograph - so dynamic, so much energy and such strong family relations in the pack. This one was photographed while lying flat on my stomach in a dry riverbed in Mana Pools. I can't wait to go back there in October leading a +Wild Eye photographic safari.

"He's a bit large!" - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
African Bush Elephant
Etosha National Park, Namibia

Just in time (at least, South African timezone considered) to sneak one in for Wildlife Wednesday...if you haven't shared photos to this theme yet, what's keeping you? Simply tag your posts with #WildlifeWednesday  and you're all set - you can also search the hashtag to see what others are sharing and have shared in the past.

This big elephant bull knew I was there - sitting in an underground concrete bunker. He came for a mid-morning drink, and I loved being able to snap wide angle low angle photos of him as he approached.

Lioness and Cub

Good morning! It's time for African Tuesday and we have an OPEN THEME today, so anything goes as long as it was photographed in Africa. Tag your posts with #AfricanTuesday  and tag the +African Tuesday and share away!

This moment between a lioness and her cub was photographed back in 2010, one afternoon as we spent time with them. Lion cubs can be such photogenic subjects, not as lazy as their parents that's for sure!

A great theme lined up for #AfricanTuesday  tomorrow - I am hoping to see many great entries...

#Africantuesday (Theme: A Portrait of Africa): July 7th

Our theme this week is A Portrait of Africa. You can interpret the theme in any way you please. We are looking forward to some innovative African images!

If you post photos taken by other people, you must state so and state the author if possible. Remember that photos must be taken in Africa and should be work and family friendly.

Important: share your photos to "public" or else your photo will not be considered for one of the top 5 photos of the week (we cannot re-share it for the theme if you don’t - a Google+ requirement)

To submit your photos to the theme:
1. tag #AfricanTuesday "Open Theme"
2. include the curator team ( +Morkel Erasmus , +Dick Whitlock and +Grobler du Preez ) so we can pick up on your posts easily.

The top 5 contributors will be added to the AfricanTuesday Top 5 circle and one of the top 5 photos will be the banner for the +African Tuesday  page for a week!___A great theme lined up for #AfricanTuesday  tomorrow - I am hoping to see many great entries...

Good morning! You know what day it is - it's African Tuesday of course...so share your photos of Africa with us, it's an OPEN THEME so anything goes. Simply tag your photos with #AfricanTuesday and make sure you also tag the +African Tuesday page to ensure your photo gets into the running for our weekly Top5 selection.

A full moon rises over a corn field in South Africa. I took this with a wide angle lens, but also captured the moon with a telephoto lens a few seconds later and superimposed it on this image (the moon looks REALLY small with a wide angle lens).

"Rough and Tumble" - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Ground Squirrels
Kalahari Desert, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa

Hello everyone! It's time for Wildlife Wednesday again, and just to show that it's not about exotic species, it's about celebrating biodiversity everywhere. Simply post photos of the wild critters you've encountered in your backyard or on your travels, and tag them with #WildlifeWednesday!

These ground squirrels provide excellent photo opportunities in the rest camps of the Kgalagadi. These two were having a playful scuffle, I was lying on the ground for a low angle.

"*Burchell's Coucal"* - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Kruger National Park, South Africa

Hello friends - time for Wildlife Wednesday! Celebrate biodiversity by sharing photos you've taken of wild mammals, birds, reptiles, insects etc - use the hashtag #WildlifeWednesday and see what others have shared as well!

This bird was warming up in the winter morning sun - a rare sight to see out in the open. I captured this photo close to Punda Maria in the #KrugerNationalPark  back in 2011.
