which one @Peter Connan ? the juvenile was singing away and therefore very easy to locate, the one in Berg-en-Dal would only let you get so close, before disappearing....

OK, well I have seen the grey-headed one at least two occasions in Berg-en-Dal, so that's probably your best bet...with the bonus of a purple-crested turaco. In fact, I think that this is the single best camp we have visited for birds (in camp) overall in the Kruger

Love the Batis (a favourite of mine), and beautiful photo of the Blue-Eared Starling - really shows there´s a reason for that name.

I have run out of "likes" again. Maybe time to either increase them or forget them and pass comments instead. Comments are always appreciated by me wether they are good, bad or indifferent !!

 

Anyway, for this series it's all very positive!! Lovely collection you'll be rivalling @Peter Connan for SA numbers soon!

Several stunning shots in this batch! Especially the Amur (which I missed this year), the Burchell's and the Roller with the Scorpion.

For close birds/animals yes, but anything further away, I still prefer the 5D3.

 

Hmmm, strange. The 20,2 megapixels on /d" APS-C sensor puts almost 50% more pixels on subject, thus the details (using same lens) should be better. And cropping distance photos for sure better.

The HighISO, and the overall quality of the image, APS-C sensor is still behind full frame one. Yet these are only technicalities; I have found your photos to be of very high IQ!

Birding was excellent in the Kruger, I’ll keep Berg-en Dal in mind. Great shots of the European Roller with scorpion!
