Rain at long last and then more migrants

We had two days of silent showers as a welcome relieve to the drought stricken areas around Mahikeng.
With the first rays of sunshine, this afternoon; I went out birding. One could hear the sound of birds again amidst the fresh rain soaked ground and trees.
I was first greeted by the Red-backed Shrike, the common summer visitor, perching conspicuously on a branch. Hooray!!! summer is here.

    Blessed rain, water is life, nice capture of the Shrike.Regards

  3. Nothing like the peaceful sensation of photographing a beautiful bird!!! here in Costa Rica, which is a small country in Central America, I have a personal challenge of photograping the majority of the over 800 different species of birds!!!
