This is for you to guess  ;)

End of an elephants tail of course - part of the hind leg is showing.  :)
Beautiful sunset!

Yesterday we went on a trip to the Drakensberg to see Burke’s luck potholes among other things.
Wanted to show Gunver the potholes as I was there in 1982. Been more tourist minded nowadays.

Water is a talented sculptor.  Amazing capture!

Well back home, only drawback with Southafrica is the long travel time ;)
I also photographed some birds, not all of them I have found a name for, the "Eagle" is unknown to me.
The 300mm f4 PE has been a good investment  :)

The first one is an African Fish Eagle.
The second one is a Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill.
The third one could be an African Hawk Eagle, I’m not sure about this one.

Thanks for input Chris.
I gave it a new spin on google, my new suggestion is Tawny Eagle.
Found this: http://www.thejunglelook.com/info/bird-info/tawny-eagle

Excellent series, Bent and Birna - not sure yet which are my favourites but the three zebras crossing the road, and the hippo with birds on its head are high on the list.

Thanks for the kind word, you actually pointed to one of mine and one of Gunvers pictures.
I was my wife Gunver that accompanied my in Southafrica ;)

I got another bird that I can not identify. It worked out fine for the eagle, so my hope this will work fine as well.
