2016-10-07: Feel Good Friday

I’ve seen secretary birds on my past trips to Southern Africa, but it seemed that I always encountered them either in terrible light, or at such a far distance they were little more than specks (or both!).  This past trip I was spoiled for choice, and saw them several times in Uganda, and every day while in Kenya.  It was very interesting to watch them high-stepping through the grass, looking for prey.

The difference good light makes is amazing.  The same camera and lens combo was used for both photos.

This photo was from my trip last year to South Africa, and basically the best I could capture of a secretary bird.

Happy Friday everyone!
