Fishing…

On the Zambezi seems to be a social event and everyone joins in – birds, people, crocs!!!P1160757

Waste water from the fish farm enters the Zambezi here and it seems to attract fishermen of all kinds!

In this video, you can see the fish jump about when the croc moves:

Ive no idea what this bird is, but it sure can stay still for long enough. He was drying himself here after a mini dive!

This little kingfisher sits on an abandoned boat roof.

When Lake Kariba filled, trees were flooded and died, providing great subjects for sunset photography! Also pretty good perches for the many water birds found along the Zambezi.

This poor bird, featured above got caught up in a fisherman’s cast…Luckily for it, hooks are valuable things and the fisherman set it free.

Fish Eagle make the most awesome call – and the swooping, majestic flights over the water. They sit for hours on trees or other vantage points over the Zambezi, waiting for prey. I was told a story by the guy who helped me capture the video below – he said he saw a juvenile fish eagle riding on its parent’s back, learning how to fish! I’d love to catch THAT on video!

This video was taken on the Zambezi – not at Binga – a few kilometres upstream near Msuna..

    • I took lots of video, but for some reason, my Picassa wont publish them to you-Tube. So I have to go the long way around, and being a lazy fat cow…..! When we went to Khama, I took a whole load of animals eating! Seems silly, but you should see how differently a wildebeeste’s mouth moves compared with a rhino!!! Ill get round to making a video!
