Birds, Nature and Landscape of Ethiopia

My collection consists of birds and landscapes. All of the photos are taken around Hawassa, where I am currently living; during the day I like to go on walks with my camera and capture my surroundings.  I photographed the Weaver bird as it took a bite from an avocado fruit; a Black Forest Oriole an endemic and melodic bird, which is beautiful to the eyes; a Gray Headed Gull at full stretch and a pair of Egyptian Geese feeding on grass. My landscapes are of cattle grazing in the early hours, a landscape of the Omo Valley and Phoenix tree when viewed from the bottom.
