These images were taken yesterday in the Eastern Sahara about 140 kilometres south west of Cairo.
I've enclose a shot of the terrain which is a mix of stone desert, dunes and petrified wood. In an area of about 20 kilometres there were about a dozen desert plants, all the same species and as yet unidentified. Each were surrounded by paw prints of Desert Fox and bird foot prints of various sizes. There were three species of birds, this one, house sparrows and a Chiffchaff or Willow Warbler [next post], bung beetles, three species of moths, many African Monarch butterflies and an ant's nest with pink and cream stripes ants. A great example of the living desert.
