African Finfoot: Photo Essay.

Male African Finfoot.

African Finfoot is a very scarce resident of rivers & some lakes throughout sub-saharan Africa. However, it is very secretive & even in areas you know it to be present, it is rarely seen & if it is seen, it is often only fleetingly. 

This morning was quite exceptional in that I found a pair on the Blyde River at Swandini & they were unconcerned & just stayed! Posing almost for the lens! It was an unbelievable hour & I thought I should share it with you.
