One little occupant of the Mana Pools area was this African Yellow-bellied Bulbul (Chlorocichla flaviventris), now referred to as a Yellow Bellied Greenbul, who is a frequent visitor to the Goliath Safaris lunch table. This bird and a few others have become very tame in the process. Its general habitat is that of riverine forests, thorn veld and coastal shrub. It occurs fairly common along the banks of the Zambezi River. They co-habit in flights of five or six birds and eat insects, not to mention bread scraps at the safari camp.

We are changing the theme a little and for the next year I would like to quote some of the more famous photographers. We start with the inspirational Henri Cartier-Bresson, the French father of photo-journalism, who many suggest was the greatest photographer of all time. He became famous for his candid photography and was the master of street photography.
“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
This image, and others of your selection, can be acquired from the author printed on fine art canvas of photographic paper for wall mounting.
