Please View Large – Helmeted Guineafowl – Numida meleagris – Finally captured one in flight, rather clumsy looking on the wing I thought. I photographed this guinea fowl at Intaka Wetlands, Western Cape, South Africa.

Beautifully captured Macky!
Thanks very much D&T!!
Haha, it looks a bit like the space shuttle, aerodynamically unlikely. LOL Great capture, I used to keep guineafowl and never caught them in flight. Well done.
:-)) Thank you valandsnake, a bird that’s not often seen in flight and yes, aerodynamically lacking.
Great shot Macky, unusual to catch a bird like this in flight…. so well done!!
Thank you Martin, was very pleased to do so.
I ’ve never seen one in flight before Macky! Great shot! Your obvious patience is to be admired too :-)
Thanks so much Lynda, with nature photography there’s much of a luck factor too. :-)
