To your bottom left in the first photo below is a large flower pot. At the top of the pot amongst the leaves, yesterday I spotted a Chameleon looking and moving. Called the Kikuyu Three Horned Chameleon, a male and usually grows to 9-13 inches in length.

Last week we stayed in a self catering cottage called a Banda in Amboseli National Park. The weather ranged from torrential rain to dry and hot spells.
in the photo are two Great White Pelicans on a gravel road.

Great shot Phil
Thank you very much Jeff, I expect if you look hard enough you will find lots of bird action amongst the reeds and on the banks

Plenty of bird wildlife, just I’m usually too busy helming the boat to notice

I shall try harder as there is plenty to see for the budding twitcher
