Secretary bird

The magnificent secretary bird is one of my favorite animals to encounter on a safari. So it really felt as a gift from the universe to encounter one on my birthday yesterday! We spotted it while it was still far off. Luckily, while we waited he came closer and closer to our vehicle so that I was able to capture this image.

  1. Nice! And happy belated birthday! (I turned off all notifications on FB for the time being, so now I seldom realize when people’s birthdays are…)
