Brown-hooded Kingfisher

March 24, 2017

A fairly common bird, seems to have adapted to suburbia well. Bit shy though and only approximately 22cm, so I was happy to get close enough to take a few shots.

Monkey on a Wire

March 23, 2017

The adults run across the wire as if on flat ground, but as you can see by the photographs, the little ones have a bit of a hard time. Practice makes perfect, I suppose.

Portrait….. of a Lizard

March 22, 2017

Now sure which particular model this guy is. Watching him I saw, if you think a leopard is quick, he is twice as fast. Saw him take out a bug in the air, he can jump!

Woodland Hoopoe – 1st Contribution

March 20, 2017

Project. Fortunate enough to have found a Woodland Hoopoe nest at the bottom of the garden here in Amanzimtoti.  Mission:Get best shot possible of this animal.

These were shot on a dull day, lighting not optimal….  full bird photographs are reasonably ok, but in the sunlight the colours of the bird will show better, unhappy with the shots of the bird in the hole.

Gossip, Slander and False Witness

March 18, 2017

Mexican Horse Thief

It would seem that this society does not follow their own set of rules and principles but do talk a lot about the “standards” one needs in order to be acceptable in the group. Oh, they lie a lot about these things and how they abide by them. It is not like they just target the misfits for the things in the title, they joyfully attack each other as well.

I thought it would be a good idea to remind some people of the rules and as I live in a Christian Country as do most that bother to read this blog, the Bible would be a good place to see what these rules are. The power of the tongue and the warning to guard one’s tongue is very prominent in the Good Book.

This seems to be an excellent start, and apparently written by a man who is called the wisest man who ever lived, King Solomon.

Proverbs 6:16-19

“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”

James 1:26

“Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.”

Let us have a look at this thing called gossip, which most people engage in, some more than others, some with no ill intent, and some, a lot, with malicious intent. “Gossip can be defined as information about the behavior or personal life of other people, often without the full truth revealed or known.” All gossip tends to involve at least some lies, intended or not. A court of law calls this hearsay. The Bible tends to equate gossip and slander as one, who am I to argue that!?  This slander, on hearsay quickly turns into something far worse, and dangerous: False Witness.

Exodus 23:1

You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. No matter who originates the accusation, we should not repeat and spread it unless we have substantial evidence it is true.”

 

Matthew 18:16 

“By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. The testimony of personal witnesses constitutes evidence to be evaluated.”

For your information:

This is written by a non-religious person that does not fit, nor wishes to, in the society he sees all around him.

A gentle warning.

Judgement

March 17, 2017

Mexican Horse Thief-Amanzimtoti4

Ask anyone if they are judgemental, 9 times out of 10, in my society that is Christian based the answer will be they do not. Some will stoutly deny any judgement at all, while a slightly more truthful answer would be that they attempt not to.

Both are absolute rubbish. It is a purely absolutely brainwashed answer. Of course you judge.

To judge someone actually means; to form an opinion or conclusion about someone. None of the formal definition includes any guidelines on the way you judge people. For instance, too quickly, too form a bias and/or personal opinion about someone or something. Despite the misinterpretation of that Scripture actually judging someone is not bad in itself.

You don’t believe me? Ok. If you have children then you would leave them in the care of any Tom, Dick or Harry, with no care. No? Okay how do you choose who you feel that they would be safe with? You have no children, but on the same theory then you would loan anyone any amount of money, regardless.

If you were so pure as to not judge a single soul, I do not believe you would be alive and able to read this article, of which of course, you make no judgement of the author thereof.

The meme cuts two ways. When first read, I believe the reaction is based on that same misinterpretation. Most will first think about how if they do not judge harshly it defines them as a “good” person. Not true. If you judge not one person or type of person harshly it shows you are a weak person more than anything else. In this new politically correct ” liberal” world, more and more evil is and will be condoned, no one wants to be seen as a judgemental sort. More and more excuses are made for the evil man does and judgement is, in theory, almost considered evil in itself. God forbid a few good people stand up and judge evil people/sects/types as evil.

As usual, this is, of course, just One Man’s Opinion.

Spiderweb

March 14, 2017

Patience is not a virtue that comes easily to me, setting up a tripod takes time. When using a long lens or doing extremely close up work it is best to use the damn thing. I get away with the telephoto shots a lot of the time, aim, breathe and squeeeze. I took the time to set up my tripod today.

River Mouth Photographs

March 14, 2017

Shall have to make a separate mission to do a bit of bird photography sometime. Even with a 300mm lens, these guys were just a little bit to far off to get a decent closeup.

Sea Cormorants

March 13, 2017

North and inland, at Mabula Lodge I got a few photographs of some of these birds, they had very bright red eyes. You can see them HERE. I am told they are coastal rather than oceanic birds, and some have colonized inland waters, the original ancestor of cormorants seems to have been a fresh-water bird. They range around the world, except for the central Pacific islands. Tried to get this one on the wing.

Surfing Photographs

March 13, 2017

My first attempt at taking photographs of people surfing. Notice that I need to practice a little more with this, and learn the settings on the camera a bit better too!
