A few photos from the past few days of several of the more spectacular animals found in Gorongosa National Park, in no particular order.
A beautiful grasshopper Acrida acuminata, about the length of my hand.
Enormous carabid beetle Thermophilum sp, with my index finger for scale.
Nymph of the Precious Sibyll Mantis, Sibylla pretiosa. One of the oddest looking mantids out there, and one of my favorites.
A gorgeous day-flying noctuid moth, Egybolis vaillantina.
Something a little larger – an adult male Impala (Aepyceros melampus) at the edge of the miombo forest. Not what I usually shoot, but definitely fun to see.
