Took this from my favorite spot at the Waterfront. Swipe to see more 👉
**HESC NEWS** — Donsie the female blue crane at HESC, has officially laid two eggs, for the first time. — John and Donsie are our breeding pair of blue cranes at HESC, that visitors can see as they arrive at the centre, as they are close to the entrance. They share their home with Bokkie Bok and Maroela, the duikers. — There are 15 crane species in the world, with three of them being found in South Africa, the Blue Crane, Grey Crowned Crane and the Wattled Crane. Not many people are aware that Blue cranes are the national bird of South Africa. — Blue cranes are monogamous and will breed only once a year, normally from the age of three or four years. They normally lay two eggs, just as Donsie has just done, and the incubation period lasts approximately 30 days. Both the male and female blue cranes will partake in the incubation process of the eggs. — Normally only one chick will survive, due to sibling aggression, but we will see what happens in the next month or so. — Once hatched, it will take between three to five months for the chick to take its first flight. — Hold thumbs that all goes well for John and Donsie, and in a month from now they will have their first chick together. Keep tuned! — #hesc #southafrica #kapama #wildlifeconservation #conservation #limpopo #hoedspruit #thisissouthafrica #hoedspruitendangeredspeciescentre #bluecrane #nationalbird #goodnews #birdsofinstagram #bird_lovers #birdsofsouthafrica

Health is more than how fit you are and how well you eat. You can be in amazing shape and still be terribly unhealthy. Society has become so focused on the visual that we often forget that health is so much more than our appearance. Health is the thoughts that fill your mind. It's how well you love yourself during the tough times. It's how kindly you treat others. It's the amount of happiness you derive from life's simple pleasures. Health is your ability to take responsibility for yourself. It's giving yourself time to rest. It's freeing yourself from the fear and insecurity that traps you.
I was busy shooting around soccer city when Thulani and his mates approached me. He was on a school tour from Mpumalanga and it was his first time visiting Johannesburg. Super intrigued with the shoot Thulani wouldn't leave without a photo and I'm pretty happy he didn't. #portaitcity . . #smilecity #portait #thisissouthafrica #johannesburg #nikon #nikonsa #iamnikon #peopleofsa
I hope you got to spend this chilly Jozi weekend all tucked up in bed!

Stole my sister's old Nikon D3000 in an attempt to try new things. Just getting started, and still very amatuer, but man has this renewed my interest in photography. Massive thank you to @craigrh for encouraging me to get out and play.

Wonderfully lazy things to do in Plett: Sail the bay… @oceansailingcharters offers luxury cruises on their 44ft sailing catamaran. The sheltered bay is perfect for a calm, serene oceanic experience. Sip sparkling wine, suntan and watch the dolphins and seals slicing through the water. There are few things more relaxing than the scent of the ocean breeze and the snap of the sail to help you unwind. #stayinplett #plettitsafeeling #plettenbergbay #gardenroute #westerncape #southafrica #wedotourism #tourismmonth #thisissouthafrica #shotleft #travelforall #discoverctwc #wowsouthafrica

Yesterday I had the most unreal experience. I was on my way to go shoot an event. For a new brand launching. Was so stoked, cause I was sent not just as media this time but as a guest. At 8:50am I wrote my car off. If you follow my stories you would have seen. Though, this has left me in an interesting space. The brand is all about breaking free. After shooting I got to make my own content. This got me thinking. The reason I started this journey was to show the world, they can break free. Despite crashing, being in a lot of pain, sad the sun wasn't present, in long pants, and other stresses. My spirit felt free, in control and in full appreciation. This moment, these moments, are what keeps a person fulled for that dream !! Keep chasing wear sunblock and #spotyourpineapple #HGCLaunch , #HansaGoldenCrisp , #FreedomIsGolden #BreakFree

Did you know: Atlantic Glass and Aluminium uses recyclable, energy-saving glass which means lower energy bills at the end of the month due to heaters and air conditioners being used less frequently in the home as with regular glass.

This was taken on the last day of the 2017 #summerholidays and made me think of the Robert Frost poem #theroadnottaken Wishing that my boys' hearts shall always be filled with the curiousity to explore and discover, but that they too shall find that magical place to which they can return time after time and feel like they have just come home. #keurboomstrand #westerncape #thisissouthafrica

Little golden gem and some African black oystercatchers. It’s hard to even remember a time that these guys were so scarce on the rocks around here- but it wasn’t so long ago that it was rare to see more than a handful. The banning of cars on the beach and a few short years later and it’s not uncommon to see dozens of them at a time. Happy ending nature story for a change. Have an awesome week everyone !! #fujilove #fujifeed #fujilove #fujixt20 #fujinon55200mm #africanblackoystercatcher #seabird #surfart #waveporn #ishootwithorms #orms #jbay #jeffreysbay #supertubes #deonlateganphotographics #naturesouthafrica #thisissouthafrica #fujilove #fujifilmsa

In a spotlight of morning sunshine streaming in through dense bush, a leopard sits with its wildebeest kill. He rested briefly between burst of adrenaline pulling the carcass into the undergrowth.

Hiking is not sexy. If you follow as many hiking and 'inspirational' outdoor blogs/profiles as I do, you'd be forgiven for thinking that all lady hikers wear crop tops and matching leggings/backpacks (and that's all) - even in the middle of winter in the Andes/Alps/Rockies (insert gnarly mountain range here) - and they all are super sexy and have perfect hair. They probably have a whole team helping them set up shots and carry their gear, or at least a #boyfriendsofinstagram who is a professional photographer. Well, this here is exhibit A of what going deep into the mountains and being self sufficient for a week REALLY looks like. It means carrying your own gear (and that doesn't include mascara), wearing typically very unsexy gaitors to protect your legs from being shredded, and not showering for a few days. And yes, that is Doug the poop scoop hanging off the side of my backpack. But also...look at those MOUNTAINS 😍 . . . . . . . 📷 Sarah Ellis #HikeMzantsi #rimofafrica #choosemountains #peoplewhohike #mountaingirls #likeamountaingirl #thruhike #mtnchicks #sheisnotlost #exploretocreate #explorehisearth #livetoexplore #lifeofadventure #allaboutadventures #adventurethatislife #neverstopexploring #getoutstayout #thisissouthafrica #mountainfolk #mountainafflicted #mountainstones #outdoortones #liveoutdoors #naturelovers #natgeo #realpeople #mondaymotivation @rimofafrica @mtnchicks @livefolk @welivetoexplore @madeofmtns @womenwhoexplore @sheisnotlost @damestravel

Hi, my name is Mari and I'm addicted to sour worms. (Beware that this might become a problem if you use them as an incentive, e.g. "I finished editing a photo - better reward myself with a sour worm!")
