Did this bird give me the run around or what?? All I wanted was a good photo showing the red eye… they would come and sit near by, but always the sun side of me, and as soon as I moved they would fly off… then whilst at Augrabies Falls one was so inquisitive as to what I was up to, it came and sat in front of me.. and that broke the spell… here are a few photos…
