Ready for Take-off

Species: Red-collared Widowbird | Location: Lalibela, Ethiopia

We spent the morning visiting churches in Lalibela. I was ready for a break, so I stayed at the hotel for the afternoon. It was situated near a gully and wild area. I spent some time just watching what was happening. A number of Red-collared Widowbirds flying around. They were noticeable by a clacking sound they made when they were flying. One particularly liked this one tree. I took numerous pictures, and this is the one I liked the best.

About The Photographer

Cropped marianbrazilsm

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
