Breviceps adspersus

A grumpy face if there ever was one, this special lady is a Bushveld rain frog (Breviceps adspersus). This female who was heavily gravid with eggs was found on the surface after some downpour in Durban. These frogs spend most of their life underground and only emerge to start calling/mating once the rains have come. They are common throughout most of the northern and eastern parts of the country.

Unlike the good majority of South African frog species, this genus does not lay their eggs in or near water for tadpoles to survive in. Instead they lay their eggs underground, in moist soil, where after incubation the miniature froglets will hatch and emerge.

DSC_2311. This photo was captured at Kalizo, Namibia!

Actually these two southern carmine bee-eaters had a dispute over an insect! Amazing to see these colorful birds when they move around and a challenge to get some nice sharp shots!!

View of Iconic Victoria Falls Border Crossing Between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Southern Africa

Iconic terrace view from the equally iconic Victoria Falls Hotel . The view leads the eye from the Zimbabwe border to beyond the bridge into Zambia. A popular dinner is served onboard the steam train parked for 2 - 3 hours each evening on the bridge but does not go beyond the Zambian border during the food experience.




Southern Masked-Weaver or African Masked-weaver (Ploceus velatus)

Southern Masked-Weaver or African Masked-weaver (Ploceus velatus) is a resident breeding bird species common throughout southern Africa. This weaver is very widespread and found in a wide range of habitats, including shrub land, savanna, grassland, open woodland, inland wetlands and semi-desert areas. It also occurs in suburban gardens and parks. The Southern Masked-Weaver is 11-14.5 cm long with a short, strong, conical bill and pinkish brown legs. The adult male in breeding plumage has a black face, throat and beak, red eye, bright yellow head and underparts, and a plain yellowish-green back. The female has a pinkish-brown bill, brown or red-brown eye and is dull greenish-yellow, streaked darker on the upper back. The throat is yellowish, fading to off-white on the belly. The non-breeding male resembles the female but retains the red eye. The juvenile of this species is like the female. The Southern Masked-Weaver nests in colonies, mainly from September to January. Males have several female partners, and build a succession of nests, typically 25 each season. The nests, like those of other weavers, are woven from reed, palm or grass. A female will line a selected nest with soft grass and feathers. The nest is built in a tree, often over water. The Southern Masked-Weaver is usually seen singly or in small groups. It may also form larger flocks, alone or with other seed eating species. It eats insects, seeds and nectar.
