Vagabonds in Madagascar Part 4


Recommended Posts

I'm still wondering how you managed to spot that owl.

 

Sounds like you made your usual grand time for yourselves. Well done.

Have a closer look - there are a PAIR of owls in the picture :)

 

Owl spotting is not easy, but I do seem to be able to pick up camouflaged birds at rest such as owl, nightjar, frogmouth, snipe and woodcock quite well. Compensation for my deafness I guess.

Got to agree with you re the video and birds (or animals); pics may not be as pin sharp as a DSLR and scope, but the movement makes up for all that. Does Norma get stills from it as well?

She can do, but rarely does.

The baob tree is an unusual tree and is known here as the upside down tree because the branches look like a root sytem reaching into the air. Further north here in Western Australia we have one that is known as "The Prison Tree". It is hollow and there is a gap in the trunk. Loal miscreants were pushed through the gap and held inside of the tree for a day or two. I believe that it is in excess of 1500 years old.
