Chimpanzee vocalizations in Kibale National Park, Uganda.
After making the long journey to the picturesque Bwindi National Park (tightly clutching our gorilla tracking permits), and hiking down 600 metres to the valley bottom where the Mountain Gorillas were busy eating their breakfast we got to spend 1 hour (which was definitely not enough, but is all that is allowed) with the amazing apes.
So far I have taken over 2500 pictures. But the internet here is too slow for me to upload much, and you probably want me to go through the mountain of pictures and only show the ones worth showing (who needs to see 75 almost identical pictures of the shoebill?)
So for now enjoy this teaser pic of an African Jacana flying over the Mabamba swamp just after sunrise:
I am back from my trip to the loveliest fleet of islands anchored in the pacific, and while I didn’t find them to be that exactly, they were indeed nice, if over-developed. It’s good to be home, and the Olympic atmosphere is great, even if the weather is absurdly warm. I was out in a t-shirt yesterday… in February! Wacky!
I’ll have some pictures posted soon.
I am going away for a while, and might not have time/internet access readily available, so posting will slow to a craw, if not completely halt. Also I am turning on comment moderation to keep the trolls and spammers at bay, so be patient if your comment doesn’t appear immediately.
I’ll be back in a couple of weeks.
Pictures of my recent trip to Gwillim Lakes in Valhalla Provincial Park:
I am back from my camping trip to Gwillim lakes. My concerns about fires were completely unfounded; despite the fact that it has been very hot and exceptionally dry for most of the summer, the one week I go camping it was wet and cold. Very, very, cold. Much colder than any August should be. It was close to freezing! And I didn’t have my winter gear with me… burrrr
I am now in the process of catching up with everything that happened while I was away.
