Wattled Cranes - Okavango Delta, Botswana. by 


According to the International Crane Foundation, Wattled Cranes stand 6 feet tall and weigh 14 pounds. The single largest concentration occurs in the Okavango Delta of Botswana a fact that we can bear testimony to as we saw a group of nearly 50 together in one evening. These critically endangered birds are suffering from a loss of their natural habitat as well as human and livestock disturbance, powerline collisions, mass aerial spraying for tsetse flies, and illegal collection of eggs, chicks and adults for food.
Featured in South Africa – Rainbow Nation and Indigenous to East & Southern Africa.

    I think the GPS coordinates for the Garden of Eden are incorrect, it has to be in Botswana. :-) Wonderful shot Sharon!!

  • Thanks again Macky. The Okavango IS paradise and we were so very lucky to have the opportunity to go.

    Now this is a shot! Ok, I do like the Panavision format/ 2.48:1 ratio. Makes the image sparkle with interest.

  • Thank you Paul…I loved your story of the rescue in the pans.
