Loved the violet backed starling; what a spectacular bird. What a contrast: I see on my phone that it’s to be 104F in Londolozi while it’s 34F here in California.

Thank you Pete for these beautiful pictures, I also love the Violet backed Starling!

That Violet backed starling is stunning. I remember being blown away by the greater blue eared starling I saw when I was at Londolozi.

Nice work on getting that photo of the violet backed starling, they’ve never sat still whenever I’ve seen them!!

A really lovely blog Pete for TWIP. A nice mix of wildlife and beautiful shots. Loved the zebra pic – amazing markings on the face. Thanks for sharing with us.
