Welcome to the Indigenous to East & Southern Africa Group!
We don’t have too many rules – they are listed on the next page. Please read them!
We are basically all about Indigenous flora, fauna and scenery in the following 15 countries of East & Southern Africa: Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and in the islands of Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Réunion, Seychelles and Zanzibar.
Please note particularly that we do not accept images of man-made objects or of humans – please keep your submissions to wildlife, flora and scenery. There is some amazing work to be seen here and we’d love to see yours as well.
The featured work you see above is changed every two weeks or so, although lately it’s stretched to rather longer for various reasons. We’ll try to get back to the original routine. The images are the choices of one or other of your hosts. Every day, there is superb work submitted to the group, so the task of featuring just twelve is not easy.
At the same time, two that are personal favourites of the host making the choices are added to the home page to be featured large for two weeks.
This time around, the two particular favourites are:
Eye Contact by Macky
Great Food!! by Jozi1
Congratulations Macky and Tony!
The current group avatar is normally decided from the result of a challenge. There hasn’t been one for a long while now – there will be one soon! In the meantime, a new avatar has been decided on from the work of one of our most prolific and accomplished photographers: Tony Goldman aka jozi1. The avatar is A great big yawn by jozi1
Do this by right clicking on the banner and clicking ‘Copy Image Location’. Then hit Edit/copy (control C on a PC; command C on a Mac) and paste the reference into the notes in your profile (control V on a PC; command V on a Mac). You then just need to type an exclamation mark (!) at both ends of the banner reference with no spaces between the !s and the reference.
