Birds feasting on the Zambezi

Birds feasting on the Zambezi

Looking south across the Zambezi towards Namibia, the sunsets in November are amazing, and each day is completely different. On this day there was some heavy rain earlier in the day, so there were thousands of flying ants around, all dropping to their deaths on the surface of the river. These birds were simply opening their mouths and skimming the surface, picking up mouthfuls of insects.
