On a drive to Amboseli with a few friends the other weekend, we happened to stop at the border with Tanzania. A subaru forester drove in from beyond the grasslands and it was looking amazing making a path where there was none. Being among the same group we were with there was no point of worry but for me, the dust and the light from the sun make a great picture on my mind. Quite an amazing image that i had to get focus on and made sure to get the moment on click

On our last escapade out of town last month comes our #FreeFotoFriday – Little Bee-Eater image of the day. Met with this bird after a morning game drive back to Nairobi Tented Camp the only accommodation located inside the Nairobi National park
The little bee eater (Merops pusillus cyanosticus) is differentiated from the blue breasted bee-eater by NOT having a white on side of the face. many people tend to think that its the size that makes it little but am not sure of what you would call a young one of the blue breasted bee- eater or any other bee-eater out there

The bird was so curious of the visitors that unlike the others, it did not fly away. Instead it seemed comfortable to have us around. The look it gave me is what makes this image our #FreeFotoFriday
With the El-nino rains beginning i have a feeling that majority of the bird watchers will hide away and try to keep warm. But #Kasunie is looking to go out and showcase more birds out there. we are still waiting to see the early arrivals of the pale-arctic migrants. Any one who has spotted any yet?
#KasuniePhotography has taken the month of October seriously and is looking to #Waterbirds. Along the #kenyan rivers, estuaries, dams and even the larger water masses like the lakes, the waterbirds have taken the chance to inhabit and even nest herein. I happened to catch these Spoon Bills in flight in Lake Magadi
These spoon bills in flight were photographed in Lake Magadi while the lake had subsided. Majority of the Flamingo’s had gone to breed and these birds seemed to have been enjoying the wider lake.
The folks around the area had actually made paths along the lake and to some extend even a market adjacent to the hot water springs when we arrived.
The spoon bills closely resemble flamingos but are are easily identifiable by their flat bills that resemble huge cooking spoons #Kasunie #FreeFotoFriday
Our #FreeFotoFriday image this week is the Greater Blue Eared Starling. The shades of blue and purple on this bird especially on the mid day sun brings out a whole different dynamic aspect; natures designs.
A very beautiful bird with amazing shades of the color Blue and purple
The dark markings on the wings are consistent with the superb starling as well. Could it be symbolic or do they have a distinct purpose for being there? Maybe Dale A. Zimmerman or Donald A. Turner of birds of Kenya and northern Tanzania or Nature Kenya will inform us in time
