This landscape reminds me of the travelling up to Kgalagadi. The excitement as well as the peacefulness of what lies ahead. Taken early one misty morning at sunrise near Kenhardt, Northern Cape. Taken @ 400mm, 1/125, F8, ISO 100
Not with a single photo but 550 photo’s combined into a timelapse video. When you are here you can hear the wildlife long into the evening even after the camp fires went out and everyone’s asleep. The sounds of jackals calling, lions roaring and even the hoo-hoo of an owl or two. The allurement of Nossob and of the Kgalagadi is magical and makes one want to come back time and again. Here the supermoon rises above the campsite. Fires burning and stories about the day are being told.
Back at home, I can hear the waves breaking, now and then a dog barking and wonder, where have all the wildlife gone…
These are small foxes (weigh up to 5kg), also know as the silver-backed foxes. They have silver and black fur on their backs and a black tail. Underside is yellowish. They can be found in open grassland plains to deserts. These creatures are nocturnal and are omnivores, meaning they eat plants and small mammals like birds, spiders and reptiles. They do not kill sheep and very rarely lambs. Their life expectancy is 6-10 years. (Vulpes chama)
