Wow! Just scrolling up-page made me realize that this is a spotting by Smith Zoo instead of Jopy as erroneously deduced from the ID suggestions in comments.
I deleted the first comment to make another one that reads "fine, colourful photos! Like a nature animation". Unfortunately, you responded before the the action was completed. Bad network here. It's all good :)
