Share Your World-Wk-47

~~~~~

How do you like to spend a rainy day?

Reading a good book or catching up with book work.

 ~~~~~

What is the weirdest or strangest thing you saw or heard or did this week?

I have had a really quiet week.  Ask the question in a couple of weeks.

~~~~~

What item, that you don’t have already, would you most like to own?

Right now it is a second Nikon camera.  However, even second-hand on eBay my budget and logic, is finding it difficult to give my self the nod to buy one.  

 ~~~~~

How many times you have moved in the last ten years?

Once…and that was enough

Decorations_0466jAnd there is always Christmas joy.

Finally, from Africa Geographic Facebook page I found this Christmas cracker joke:

 Q. Why did the lion lose at poker?
A. Because he was playing with a cheetah!

Lion_0943I have used one of my own photos instead of illegally using Carole Deschuymere’s photo.

Pleeaassee take time out to look at Ms. Deschuymere’s photo.

Travel Theme-Birds

My Birds Travel Theme for this week.

~~~~~

Once again I have selected birds of South Africa for this week’s

Birds

challenge.

bird_0368a

It is only since working my way through my photos that I have noticed that small blobs in some photos could be enlarged to produce birds as attractive…

vulture_0153

…or strong hunters as in the first two photos..

The ground hornbill at Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre had its eyelashes done especially for this photo.

roller_0514My favourite of this lot is the Lilac Breasted Roller,

taken in Kruger Park National Park.  

For such a small bird it has a huge wingspan.

Thursday Lingering Look at Windows-Wk-50

~~~~~

Decided to look at windows from the other side this week.

The following shots are from our cruise from Perth to Fremantle on

Western Australia’s Swan River.

~~~~~

SwanRiver_0260

If my memory serves me correctly, and the information provided is correct, the buildings on the waterfront in this photo all belong to the same family.  A careful look and you will see one or two houses about half way up the river bank with the same colour roof which are also part of this waterfront mansion.

SwanRiver_0264

Certainly an enjoyable cruise with time in Fremantle for shopping.

Well worth the day out if ever in Perth.
