The joy of small things ☺️

It’s not only the Big 5 that bring joy to a safari in Africa. Spotting the smallest creatures can sometimes be even better than the giants.

What a beautiful shot of a Southern White-faced Owl. Have any of you birders out there been lucky enough to tick him off your lifer list?

“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” J. Muir

Hey brother...
