Aasvoëltarentaal... "A Vulturine Guineafowl" (Acryllium vulturinum) by 

Two photographs I blendid in one and used three of “Kim Klasse’s” Textures: happyheart, scratchedmagicjuly and shadesofnovember. Edited in PhotoShop. Captured with my Canon EOS550D at a local Lion Visiting Farm near Bloemfontein in the Free State Province of South Africa.

Tarentale word as gesellige voëls beskryf. Hulle kom altyd in troppe voor. Hulle word geredelik mak, maar hou van ruimte en ’n mens moenie probeer om hulle op hok te hou nie. Hulle hou ook nie rêrig van hoenders nie en baklei met hulle, word vertel.

In Engels word die tarentaal ’n guinea-fowl genoem, en dit is waarskynlik geregverdig om af te lei dat dit iets met Guinee in Wes-Afrika te doen het. Die Nederlandse benamings vir die voël is Poelepetaat, Poelepintade of Poelepetane. Dit kom uit die Frans: poule pintade (poule beteken hoender en pintade beteken gespikkeld).

In Afrikaans ken ons ook Poelpetaan en Poelpetater, maar oor die benaming tarentaal is daar veral ’n interessante teorie. Die voël sou aanvanklik as die Terra Natal-voël bekend gestaan het (die voël van die land van Natal), wat toe volksetimologies tot tarentaal vervorm is. Terra Natal … tarentaal. Interressant, nê?

Living on a farm, as I do, I’m provided unique opportunities to photograph plants and creatures. There are not many trees here, and no mountains or rocks; but there are a lot of fields! The bright sun gives me many lovely silhouettes to capture; while the rain brings out tiny plants and creatures. Sometimes I visit another town or province; and then my Canon EOS 550D works overtime.
