<p>An Orthodox Priest outside the Church of St George in Lalibela, Ethiopia.<br/>
.<br/>
Unlike many African countries, Ethiopia has never been colonised by Europeans and had a monarchy that spanned centuries.  The country is home to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, established in the first century AD.<br/>
.<br/>
Early in the reign of King Lalibela, while the world still lamented the loss of Jerusalem to the Muslims in 1187, the King described a vision he had had of a new Jerusalem created in Ethiopia.  Central to that vision was the construction of eleven churches that would be carved from the living bedrock, rather than built up on foundations in the traditional style.<br/>
.<br/>
40,000 people laboured for 25 years to carve these churches.<br/>

<p>The Angolan giraffe (Giraffa giraffa angolensis), also known as Namibian giraffe, is a subspecies of giraffe that is found in northern Namibia, south-western Zambia, Botswana, and western Zimbabwe.  (Wikipedia)<br/>

This one has a Red Billed Oxpecker on the face.  The Oxpecker feeds on insects and parasites on the skin of the Giraffe.  It also feeds on blood, keeping wounds clear and clean.<br/>

The winter skies of the Okavango Delta are crystal clear. There are no clouds and the fires haven’t started burning in neighbouring countries. This time lapse was made on the deck of my tent at Key and Downey’s Shinde Camp.

<p>The Marabou Stork is sometimes known as the Undertaker Bird because of their grey jacket and the way they stand, silently and unmoving as they watch predators feed.  When the big mammals have finished, these carrion-feeders will move in for their share.<br/>
.<br/>
Marabou are large birds, standing up to 150cm (~5ft) tall with verified wingspans of 3.2m, the largest of land-based birds and second only to the Wandering Albatross (3.5m).<br/>
