Snapshot Serengeti Talk
Not quite a #koribustard
1 x #wildebeest for sure; lots of totally unidentifiable towards the horizon
Calisthenics - bush style. Can'y you just picture the yawn that goes with...
...about to be abducted by aliens 😃
Yes the eyes have it - but no telling what they belong to is there? So, checked no animals...
#giraffe; probably eating rather than standing, but who knows... and we do the hokey-kokey
Very surreal! I'm wanting to go off and weave this one...
What causes this effect? it appears quite frequently.
Looks like Serengeti giraffe have a less regular pattern than those seen in WWKenya - Are they genetically different?
O M G !!! Late again...
Any ideas on just what uses this nest?
Yes - and he's the third one that's come up today!
#giraffe with hitch-hiking #birdother?
#zebra, and lots of something - too far away to tell, near the tree line
Nest? or an air borne porcupine?
Would this be the ghost elephant then?
Who said we were descended from dinosaurs?
Excellent horns on this individual
Is that a caterpillar on the rhs grass stem?
Surely the one on the left isn't a two-headed #hartebeest???
I cant see any extra legs, so I said 3 animals...
#porcupine; possibly 2?
Ha! they all look like they are wearing camping headlights...
Wow, awesome. You may be right about 2 individuals, unless he is a complete camera hog. Are the dark end of the tails a bit different?
some kind of insect?
Sorry 'Z', I saw it first...
No animals - just a butterfly.
Single elephant: aren't they usually seen traveling in groups?
Or is this a solo male looking for a friend?
Clicked finished too quickly and missed reporting the 4 #Wildebeest in addition to the reported zebra
OK - sorry - I've removed the tag
I thought they were hartebeest and wondered about a collective noun...
#wildebeest and a nest (unknown inhabitant)
So, the giraffe I "saw" in a previous shot from this camera is a "something" plus a bit of dead tree in the background!
#wildebeest (2 for sure) plus "headlights" on the horizon.
Well, lookee here - #warthogs not eating!
Absolutely no idea about this one. Chose Aardvark 'cos it's first on the list (pathetic, eh?) Some sort of nest arrangement in the tree?
OK, there's something on the horizon - guessed #zebra, but the oddly coloured insertion isn't doing us any favours.
Anyone seen #warthogs doing anything other than eating?
Hooray for the 3-image sets. See how well the camouflage works here.
Brought to you by 'Wildebeest Cam'
Thank-you! chose #kori-bustard, but knew it wasn't quite right, coloured-in wrongly!
The "nothing" is too far off to identify
Now I just know you're going for the surreal!
It's a hard life!
Opted for 2 animlas here; the ones on the horizon are too far away to count/identify.
Just a bit surreal, this one!
#koribustard (but not quite???) are there other sorts?
Very arty - but not helpful...
#noanimals; clearly 3 eyeballs? Any guestimates
Best guess is a #mongoose of some sort (couldn't find in the available images)
#hartebeest - partybeest; never seen so many together.
#something-else - possibly a mongoose?
Well, if that was supper, we've had it!
Good-o, I guessed #mongoose due to lack of anything else remotely possible.
Might be just a dust devil?
These guys look like they have something spotted!
and a dust devil on the horizon
#elephant; with an itch?
Oh, good, someone knew what this #bird-other is.
3 frames completely blank??
Love the way the #topi appear to be wearing sheer black stockings
Kori-bustard-like, but not. Any ideas? Unfamiliar with African birds.
marked #bird-other in frame 3 - maybe a raptor?
Going towards the light?
#warthog in a tearing hurry; blink and you miss it.
#nothing - not even an image...
?Large #bird(other) on top of tall tree to left of centre?
Excellent joke - maybe
Yes, finally, # leopard.
My thought exactly!
Here's a "first" - #zebra sitting down
Does this #giraffe look pregnant to anyone else?
Something upset these #impala - hit play and note the ears
hope the youngster is just resting
Perfectly framed Tommy
#hartebeest - bothered by flies. Don't we all know how that feels.
#dik-dik (I think) x 3 and in the daylight. Must be my lucky day.
#buffalo - at the water hole.
#human - ?fuel truck
A #dik-dik by daylight. They really do have odd shaped noses.
and 1 x #bird-other; clicked on the wrong button! Sorry.
#thompson's-gazelle, and he just knows that something's watching him!
#aardvark - on a mission
birds - in danger of roasting?
#guinea-fowl - about to get wet
#human - all you can see is the dust trail
#bird-other - looks like some kind of pigeon maybe
another alien object
Yes! that's what I thought too - never seen one before though so I wasn't too confident
haven't been keeping an eye on the images, but does this #bird-other have a favourite perching spot?
odd angle #bird-other.
The tentative #bird-other could be a really ferocious moth maybe?
Nothing's safe from the spiders
Did you get my good side?
Looks like this Grant's is warning something off (hit play) this behavior is what sheep and goats do when stuff gets too close.
So, now we know what pulled the branches down.
#lion-female; appears to have an injury on the right shoulder.
#human; off-camera right, doing a masterly job with the bush knife.
Is this what's known as "adrenaline grass" because you never know just what's lurking in it?
#Thompson's gazelles and #hartebeest definitely on a mission!
#elephant; having a slight disagreement?
"The ball can't have gone far"
#zebras - doing the 'sardine' thing!
Bother! hit the wrong number then lost the lot! 2 X #impala
#impala: formation eating
#eland - and you can just see the faint white stripes on this one
#hippopotamus - but what an unusual colour!
It's that #bird-other again. Is this the most favoured perching place?
Too far away to tell for sure; opted for #zebra and T's #gazelle just from size differential...
#lion - male. Seems that they are rarely captured in these images, or maybe it's just the luck of the draw. Anyway, he's gorgeous.
Really don't want to meet the spider that made this anchor thread!
#guinea fowl - who knew they could fly!
#zebra - and rolling
I spy with my little eye - something beginning with "C" It's those paparazzi again!
and a #butterfly (frame 2)
Wow! the first male #lion I've come across.
Oh good, others thought it was a #mongoose too! Thought I was delusional.
Convinced this is #human #balloon
#grant's: couldn't get much closer
Lovely image of #elephant mother
There may be something lurking in the grass in frame 1 between the 2 x #humans
#lion-female; with collar
#bird-other; ?#vulture with nesting material
#buffalo - Beginnings of a battle?
#human. Press play - nice action
#bird-other; most unusual view.
#bird-other; only in frame 1
#bird-other; some kind of raptor? Can't see the enough of the legs; and a beak would be helpful!
#elephant - in a hurry
Checking other images has revealed #baboon
#bird-other; approximately the size of a guinea fowl, but not them!
#buffalo, dressed for a festival
Maybe something feathered came to grief here?
See what you mean - must have been some wild weather!
#jackal - (side-striped)?
And a #bird-other leads the parade
Wasn't sure there was a #reptile there in the previous image 'cos he was sitting very still. But here he is - some kind of skink?
Beam me up Scottie!
#mongoose (?) was all I could think of for this one, although it didn't fit with any of the "quick" identifiers
standing like a champion...
#aardwolf (I think) haven't seen one of these before
Thank goodness for moving frames, almost missed the little tacker
#buffalo (?) just going by the number of flies
An #elephant has lots of friends - he has a handle at both ends. Always thought that the rhyme meant his tail..
#buffalo - so this is how they get muddy; a day out at the spa
#baboon x2.5 - closer one has youngster on its back.
A very fine fellow
#human - maybe a safari party?
#weaver-birds; looks like they may be repairing last year's nests
#bird-other, x2; first frame only
#buffalo - trying to start a new fashion
#baboon - has something spotted up in the tree.
whatever this is - it's living life on the edge. Keep trying to look around the frame but it doesn't help any!
Bother. Thought this might be rhinoceros, but previous image is #hippopotamus.
#hartebeest and #calf
#human (with tracking equipment?)
Click on play and watch the #thompson's in the foreground do calisthenics...
#weaver-bird nests, but can't spot any birds this time
Opted for #reedbuck, but the colour looked wrong. Any ideas?
#hyena-spotted; dazzled by the bright light.
Is the #vulture collecting nesting material? Particularly like the long white "trousers"!
#giraffe x 2 - nearly missed them!
Maybe a #warthog tusk from close quarters? I can't imagine what it can be either
#giraffe - isn't camouflage wonderful
Something moving on the horizon, but we need over-the- horizon radar to tell what it is...
How come there's never an ox-pecker around when I need one?
Grant's - coming ready or not!
#dik-dik - I hope. Thought it was stuffed until its ears moved.
Good job the stripy legs show up in the dark.
Now we're cooking - high-tech grass slashing.
#buffalo - plus two youngsters of different ages?
#butterfly, frame 3
?something caught on or near the lens
All fall down...
#cheetah - I think you got my good side this time!
Not much comfort here. Looks like the inside of our "troopie" too.
#buffalo - help, this tree grabbed my tail...
That's some bush knife!
#giraffe, with hitch-hiking birds
#zebra - taking (or practicing) a bow.
#warthog (x2) in a tearing hurry.
nothing on the list - but maybe ants?
#wildebeest - one with a single horn
Oh - looks like we've lost one of the trees.
Anyone else find it interesting that the #wildebeest don't mind sharing the shade with the zebra (or vice-versa)
#secretary bird - ?young one or maybe just having a really good hair day
Odd flying object in frame 1
#wildebeest - the one on the other side can't believe it's eyes either...
Guessed #cheetah, but only because of the angle of the tail
#eland - back right leg looks a bit odd - some kind of swelling?
guessing #hare for the two smallish creatures chasing each other through the grass
#hyena-spotted. Is it imagination or does the fur on the backline grow in a tail to head direction?
Nice to see the downed tree sprouting again
It was a dark and moonless night...
another #wildebeest discussion
#warthog - click! then I spotted the gazelle, probably Thompson's
Some kind of insect on one of the spines of this plant; frames 2 & 3
#eland & calf - not long born by the look of it
Oh, good I guessed right! #Mongoose without the stripes
#wildebeest - conference
#impala - How will we get out of this mess?
Anyone know if #buffalo are like cows - they can walk, eat, pee and defecate all at the same time? And avoid obstacles.
#elephant - something upset these guys.
must be a calf somewhere close - maybe the one sitting behind her.
So many #elephant
#hartebeest; adult has a broken or deformed left horn
#elephant: synchronised trunk swinging
#elephant? mainly because of the wrinkly knee in frame 1& 3 but texture in frame 2 does look rhinoceros-like.
Doesn't have quite the "roman nose" for a wildebeest, nor the right nostrils for a buffalo - any other ideas???
#hyena-spotted because of the shape of the ear.
My thought exactly - but opted for #balloon!
#elephant - family group
Frame 3 -Just checking for pheromones?
Either #elephant trunk or a lost giant squid
#hyena-spotted, admiring his reflection
#hyena - extreme close-up
Guessing #zebra, but it just has to be pregnant.
#warthog - but only guessing. Shaking off mud or water perhaps. Reminded me of the dog after he's been in the dam.
Gorgeous, isn't she!
#balloon = probably not as close to the tree as it looks
#wildebeest - all alone, most unusual; was it something he said?
#elephant - "they'll never see me hidden in this tree"
Is it the moon, behind the tree?
I'm thinking #hyena-spotted from the shape of the ear
nearly missed the #giraffe!
#buffalo (?) just back from the mud treatment at the local spa
Maybe #eland (judging in the length of the tail - if that's what I;m seeing - could be imagination though)
#Warthog; extreme close-up
it's those #aliens again
This view is unbelievably like Australia's Musgrave Ranges.
#Thompson's-gazelle with an itch
Greeting the incoming lioness?
Using the well-known 'if I put my head in this bush no-one will be able to see me' technique
Frame 2 - #bird other - should be identifiable to those who live in Africa?
#hippopotamus - found a friend at last. Ans some sort of reflective flying bug.
I wish they'd tell me when we run out of biscuits!
Either a #wildebeest or one of those "animal rocks" again
either imagination or there is a #bird-other at the top of the nest
Yes, isn't it. The animals must have gone the other way from the camera.
#buffalo, with hitch-hiker #bird-other
I'm thinking #serval, but open to suggestions.
#zebra - with the intermediate stripes on the rump. Is this a different variety?
#hippopotamus - now we're getting to the bottom of things.
#Grant's, but only guessing, too far away to tell for sure
Somebody switch the lights out? Seriously, there are regular shots of the deep dark; is something leaning up against the camera lens?
Another "itchy" shot!
Opted for "nothing" but maybe Peter Rabbit popped up in frame 3? Can't think what else it could be...
#bird-other appears only in frame 1 (in flight, extreme right)
Yes, you can just see the stripes on the #eland!
slightly pre-historic looking
He just knows there's someone in there!
#bird-other: and then there were three!
Grant's? also I forgot to check the young present box - little hoofs behind the big animal?
#zebra. The one at the right has to be pregnant/
lucky the #bird-other was out when the cheetah came calling!
#cheetah - At last, something happens at "the rocks"
#warthog - these animals always seem to be in a hurry!
like the action!
#Thompson's-gazelle, with an itchy ear
#dik-dik in the daytime. The nose does look different!
Default! #wildebeest - absolutly no idea...
#giraffe - with interesting legs; is this a juvenile?
Legs that long and skinny - it just has to be #giraffe doesn't it?
#bird-other in frame 2
I think that might be a warthog tusk
nothing - except a dragonfly (maybe) a large flying insect anyway...
#something appears at the right edge in frame 2 - any idea what this is?
winning by a nose
#Zebra - "is this my best side?
Chose #reedbuck for this one because the nose looks bigger than that of the did-dik in the identification images.
Another itchy zebra
Are these blue frames designed to relieve eyestrain?
#wildebeest - really moving!
Oh good, someone knows what this is
Extreme close-up - I guessed #cheetah
Don't you really hate coming in on the tail end of things?
#giraffe with #bird-other hitch-hikers perched on (his) shoulders?
I'm guessing a #Thompson's-gazelle knocked the camera over
I'm hoping that's a junior #giraffe further from the camera
Pretty good downpour!
#Bird-other - in flight x5 coming from the right, frames 2 and 3
Oh my! what big teeth I have...Great joke though.
drat those cameras, caught in the act...
#hartebeest - so many must make a convention - is there a collective noun?
#bird-other, bottom edge of frame, 1/3 across from left edge.
I guessed #human, because I couldn't see what else it could be!
Nothing but some kind of #beetle? flying left of frame 1
Ticked the #elephant box, due to the dimpled and fissured skin.
guessing the #giraffe is eating
#zebra - calling a friend?
also in a hurry!
#topi, but only guessing - back sweeping horns?
#warthog - in a hurry
"Oh, my ears and whiskers..."
Nothing but a yellow #butterfly?
One of those stick snakes?
#wildebeest #calf. x2
#bird-other nominated 1 but there may be 2??
Is there a #wildebeest challenge match going on towards left edge? it's a bit hard to discern.
Probably right; I guessed grant's gazelle
#buffalo, with #bird-other hitch-hikers
#giraffe - I think I can see 4, but there are 2 for sure
#Buffalo - I'd be looking cranly too, surrounded by this many flies...
almost like seeing the curvature of the earth
How can they eat such thorny material?
Is there a spiderweb on the camera? Wouldn't like to meet the spider!
#giraffe - you put your left leg in...
#zebra, in a real hurry
#bird-other at top of bush appears to have a red patch on its front.
Frame 1 - a large insect?
cheetah - something just on the right edge of frame 3 is about to come to grief!
Maybe I see the difference now!
That was another good joke!
Guessed this one wrongly! Obviously not an expert in this area.
#reedbuck - don't you love the beauty spot?
A bit like this here today. Cold with it.
Frame 2 - testing for pheromones, or did the leader tell a good joke?
#warthog - extreme left edge of frame
I'm going with #impala for this one - it looks like it has black tips to the ears.
opted for #bird-other. Whatever they are, they are pretty big, with a longish pointy beak (frame 1)
#nothing - too straight-edged to be animate don't you think?
If we stand this way, we can fit more in the shady patch!
#zebra, cup-a-tea time.
#bird-other - heading for the nest in the tree?
#giraffe - didn't realise that the patterns weren't 'hard-edged'
How I see without my spectacles!
Goodness, the #bird-other has swapped shrubs!
I'm starting to think that the #bird-other on the shrub at top right is stuffed!
#lion ?whatever - must have an itchy back.
#wildebeest: wonder who won?
#zebra - too far away to really tell.
#bird-other; blink and you'll miss it!
Who knew it got foggy...
Sorry = not much to see in this frame!
#zebra with the intermediate lighter stripes? (backs to the camera)
A bit closer than normal perhaps.
no idea what this is really but guessed #wildebeest - is it white on black or black on white?
Central zebra has a intermediate brown-looking stripe?
figured it was a flying "something"...
#zebra and #wildebeest - 6 of one and half a dozen of the other - too far away to tell for sure the exact quantities!
whatever is obscuring the left side still hasn't moved, so I'm voting for man made obstruction.
#bird-other or #butterfly - can't tell
Almost had me there, until I noticed the T-shirt!
#weaver-bird-nests again, but no sign of the birds. Are we photographing from a hide this time?
...how many fingers?
frame 1 - ? #bird-other in flight( RHS) or fire debris blowing about
Another alien? or possibly the moon?
#bird-other, in flight; frame 1
...and about a hundred flies...
#vervet-monkey - totally wild guess!
#bird-other; left of centre, foreground. I could be imagining this one!
#?wildebeest surrounded by flies, or are the black specks small birds panicked by the presence of an in flight #bird-of prey?
Frame 1 - #bird-other in flight
#bird-other, in flight right of the distant hill formation
#warthogs - family group
These 2 #birds-other must have a nest here somewhere - this must be the sixth time or so they've turned up, in similar positions.
#bird-other (in flight, frame 1; briefly)
guessing #wildebeest here - too far away to tell for sure.
#lion - Oh, good - that's what I guessed!
#wildebeest; really moving...
#balloon - rather them than me!
#weaver-birds. Maybe with young in the nests given the amount of activity?
No real idea what this is, but it looks like something nasty happened to the camera
#zebra (of course) and an "other" #bird - looks kind of iridescent blue/green with orange legs. Head may be a dark colour.
Hope the camera didn't burn.
Wow, I thought they were #weaver-birds too!
human artifact and a #bird nest in the tree
#warthog is a total guess based on the tufted tail??? at the left edge
#wildebeest in bulk, on the horizon (only guessing here)
#warthog is a pure guess
"Nothing" identifiable - but something is on the horizon.
No idea what this "nothing" is
#warthog is the best I can do with this one - wild guess
#spotted hyena ??? guessing again.
I/m guessing here!
There is something present, but too far away to see what it is -two trees in from right edge. May have a box for "unidentifiable" please?
#wildebeest is a complete guess - too far away to really know.
#bird - may be a falcon-type?????
not strictly true that 'nothing' present, but too far away to even guess what they are apart from antelope-like
#lioness has a collar
Things in the distance too far away to identify!
two 'somethings' off to both right and left, I'll let you guess!
Look out it's that crocodile log (again)
again,something here, but too dark to identify
Something present: we need a category for "unknown"
Best guess wildebeest; however, no roman nose & the horns aren't right so he could be something not included in the list.
#unknown but definitely "something" rather than nothing
not even one quarter of an ear! Possibly a hyena though going by the 'notched' look
there's the eye of something - not even enough detail to guess
there is something here really, but too far away to see
no animals, but there is a #butterfly!
Only guessing the Topi!
hard to exactly what this is with just an ear and a glimpse of horn!
No idea really, but there is obviously something present so guessed wildcat
bumper bar of 4WD on left edge!
something in the trees just below the horizon line, but to far away to identify. Sorry.
Not enough bird present in the frame to identify!
some antelope-like animals along the horizon line, but too far away to identify
Best guess #civet; but he's a ghost........
He's asleep in the tree; best guess #hyena of some sort as he has rounded ears.
something moving on the horizon, but too blurred to make out.
obviously SOMETHING here, but too dark to see exactly what
