Bateleur




Terathopius caudatus
Qui si tratta di un individuo giovane,
l'adulto è molto più sgargiante,
con il suo becco e le zampe rosse.
Comune nel Kalahari,questo poi sembrava
soddifatto di essere fotografato.
--- This a very young Bateleur.
The adult appears more colorful:
scarlet face and legs.
This one seemed happy to show us
its beauty,for a long time...

A very unmistakable bird Andrea, even the juvenile. These are fantastic shots of it. I love the adults in their balck and white colors too. I get the idea that you really love coming to Africa and the wildife and birds we have here. It is a wonderful country in many ways.
