With the new year barely out of the starting blocks, it’s once again time to select the photos which best represent our travels and nature experiences during 2021, plus a few others that appeal to me for various reasons. Despite the ongoing restrictions brought upon all of us by Covid 19, we still managed to travel fairly extensively, although it was limited to the borders of South Africa.
I’m hoping you will find some of my favourite images to your liking – if you do, please take a moment to mention them in the comments at the end of the post.
During a normal birding year, I take a couple of thousand images of birds – this past year, for various reasons, I did not get out in the field birding and atlasing as much as I would normally have done, nevertheless when it came to choosing images I was happy to find that it was as challenging as ever.

I cannot really choose a favourite, Done, for I like all of these photographs! Twist my arm and I will tell you that I am very impressed with both the Orange-breasted Sunbird and the White-bellied Sunbird – the latter in flight is awesome. The Rock Kestrel pulls at my heartstrings for we used to watch them coming into roost in a eucalyptus tree in Mahikeng. To see Blue Cranes is a great privilege and I was blessed to see four of them this morning!
Some really special pics there! Thank you.
Glad you appreciate them, thank you
