African Emperor Moth

The not so well-known African Emperor Moth or Bulls Eye Silkmoth (Gonimbrasia zambesina) is an east and southeast African moth in the Saturniidae family.
They live in wooded areas and along the banks of rivers.
Characteristic are the eye-spots on the wings. The wingspan of the large African Emperor Moth is between 125 to 140 mm.
This picture was taken in the tropical butterfly house Klein Costa Rica in Someren in the Netherlands.

AFRICAN FISH EAGLE:

For greater detail, please click on the image.

This male Fish Eagle is the epitome of African pride and grandeur for many people, with its piercing call carrying across the wilderness. The call is also the symbolic call in Africa for many.

The African Fish Eagle, the national bird of Botswana's neighbors Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Sudan. It is easily the most sought after bird sighting for safari-goers and fortunately it is commonly seen along waterways, perching on branches overlooking the water. Fish Eagles feed on fish they catch by swooping down to the water surface from their perches in high trees. If they miss the catch they will return to the trees to seek out more fish on the surface. When catching a fish they will return to a perch and feed but should the fish be too heavy to pull out the water they will pull it to shore using their powerful wings to generate power. (Source: Siyabona Africa)

African fish eagles are monogamous and they will mate for life. They are very successful breeders and a habitat like the Okavango Delta is the perfect breeding site as they build their nests fairly close to the water and will probably use these nests for the duration of their life span.

The project is funded by Government of the Netherlands and implemented by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) together with the Zambian Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries. The project is assisting the Zambian Government to bring about a reform in the system of marketing maize and other staples with a view to achieving cost efficient marketing which will in turn lead to food security. It is assisting in the development of a strategy for removal of subsidies, and an orderly transfer from a controlled to a liberalized marketing system for maize in particular and food grains in general. It will also provide advice on the organizational structure required to set up and administer a suitable policy framework and will help to put into place a marketing information system together with an appropriate management information system.
