PLEASE VIEW LARGE – Spotted Thick-knee (Dikkop) – Burhinus capensis The eye intrigued me, photographed at my home, Cape Town, South Africa.
The Spotted Thick-knee has a height of 43 cms and weighs around 365 gms.

My interest in the field of photography began in childhood, starting with film, then a ‘splatter’ of videography and finally the migration to DSLR photography.

I hope you enjoy viewing my interpretation of the Natural World through my lens.

    BEAUTIFUL capture Macky! These birds get very tame, looked after an injured one for a while and it even came into the house looking for minced meat which I was feeding it!

  • They’re certainly not skittish, in fact the one challenged me, opened it’s wings and hissed. :-) Thank you Maree!!
