African animals in our area.

These are all of the animals wandering around freely in our nature reserve.

First up is the Wild Spotted Genet and these guys removed all of the White Fan-tailed pigeons on the farm where we used to stay.

Yes we also have elephants and lions and the rest of the Big 5 popular animals, but they are kept in camps and I don't take photos of anything that is not free. So here I will show you a variety of the other animals that we have here. Note that from time to time other kinds of animals pop in for a visit, but the animals in here are all local.
Come and look.

I think you know this beauty below is a Leopard.

The name of this one is a Caracal and we had a Lynx on the farm up north that looked very similar.

The African wildcat and you will note that most of the animals were taken at night.

A Cheetah with a wild Hare.

Finally I took all of the photos from this board that was placed by Cape Nature.

Yes, the Baboon, Otter and Fox were also on the board, but the ones above are the animals that I really like.
I had to schedule this post and by the time that you read it, we will be at work in the middle of our move to another house. So the PC's will be in boxes and I will have to install both of them at the new place. I can only hope that I will find a strong signal there.
We will hopefully be back on-line tomorrow late afternoon or evening.

I hope that you have enjoyed the story and the post.

And That's All For Now Friends.

I was wondering how the heck did you do those photos until I saw that you were cheating... :) Just kidding... It's nice to see that these animals still can survive in the wild despite humans' bad behavior...
Thanks for sharing!


I have picked this post on behalf of the @OurPick project and it will be highlighted in the next post!

Hahaha, one has to think out of the box to keep things interesting !LOLZ

Oh yes, but these are the bitter enders, as once this area was teeming with wild live, until man arrived with his cursed word called "progress".
We all should be ashamed at the way that we have damaged nature.
Thank you kindly for selecting my post.

Have a !BEER

Oh, a long cat with glowing eyes 😎
The variety of animals you have down there is amazing, Zac, and because the wild cat looks like an uncle of our gray cat Onyx, I like this one most, although the Leopard is exceotionally beautiful.

Most of the cats are nocturnal and the nature guys set up special cameras to get shots of them at night when the cats are out hunting.

Yes, I seem to remember that you guys also have the Onyx and one of your cats are named Onyx if I don't have it wrong?

Cheers and thanks.

I have seen such special setups with all kinds of triggers and flashes - way too complicated for me 😎

Yes, one of our cats is named Onyx and the red one is called Pete 🐱

Apparently those cameras have night sight laser fittings and beams are set that picks up any movement to trigger the cameras. I also am not very conversant with the exact systems that they use.

You see? At times I have some good memory flashes and at other times I have memory lapses 🤣

Cheers and thanks.

I have seen some YouTube videos and it's not my style of photography, although you can lean back and sleep while the cameras take photos 😉

Right, sometimes your brain works just as bad as mine 🤣 !LOLZ

Yes, the infrared cameras work on timers and movement overnight and the next morning the operator downloads the night photos. Also not my style as I like to be a part of the action 😁

I call it brain farts my friend 🤣 LOLZ

Cheers and thanks.

We are men of action my friend, born like this and will die like this.
Hopefully when we are playing Rugby 🤣 !LOLZ

Well let's then just leave it as bad decisions as no place in our lives for stinky thoughts 🤣

Cheers and thanks.
