In July, I paid my first visit to a Conservancy, in this case, Naboisho Conservancy. Whilst looking at a tower of giraffes, Johnson, our guide, noticed several Southern ground hornbill near a clump of tress. We headed towards them and I started to take some images when I noticed one pecking at what looked like a stone. It was when the hornbill tossed the item up and caught it, I realised it was a terrapin. The hornbill proceeded to pick up, drop and peck at the poor mite until it managed to take the exposed parts as a snack. This image was one of 13 shots taken in manual mode, auto ISO over a 7-minute period.
