hide and seek……………..

Last weeks’ photo challenge – hidden, reminded me of a recent visit to the West Coast National Park, about and hours drive from Cape Town.
The area is home to many plant and bird species. I happened to be spending the weekend there with some friends. Naturally, the camera came along. Our lodging were alongside a lagoon which presented wonderful shooting opporunities.
As it turned out, we went for walk in the reserve, and on our way back nooticed something moving in a tree that was close by. On closer inspection we discovered that it was a Cape Eagle Owl, well camouflaged in the foliage of the tree. He (well lets assume he was male :-)) was perched pretty high up, so was not really unsettled by us approaching. He did try and move to a slightly better position for keeping an eye on us. He looked in very good condition, so didnt appear to be stranded because of injury or something. So here we were checking one another out, him peering around branches to get a good glimpse of me, and me moving around trying to get a clear shooting opportunity. I managed to get a few shots of him before he decided that he was just going to move deeper into the tree where it was no longer possible to see him too clearly, so I guess we were playing a little game of hide and seek, very appropriate considering last weeks challenge topic 🙂 – hidden- ……..the journey continues……………
