Tawny Eagle Pan

Posted on July 31, 2008

There is a small pan about 400 meters from camp and I have spent a few afternoons photographing the various animals coming down to drink.

Over the weekend I headed down to the pan for some photography. I normally arrive about an hour before the sun goes down and just wait to see what I might capture. I was busy capturing a saddle-billed stork when suddenly Makwela female leopard arrived for a drink.

Yesterday afternoon I was busy photographing the beloved stork, when a warthog came down to wallow in the mud. Looking at the tracks around the pan there were also waterbuck, impala and a dazzle of zebra that came to quench their thirst.
