My Word of the Week Challenge-Shadow

~~~~~

Three unrelated, but three of my favourite  ‘shadow‘ photos.

~~~~~

Door_1857BW

This church was photographed for its doors and windows.

It was not until reviewing the shot that I noticed what a great  shadow the old eucalyptus tree had created on the roof.

wintertree_1861BW

A silhouette in mid winter.

Elephant_0004b

Finally, this will be in my top ten, not necessarily for the quality of the photo, but more for the quality of the experience.  After all, it’s not every day that an elephant wanders out of the shadows a mere fifteen metre from your tent.

A-Z Challenge-W-W-W

My contribution to this week’s W challenge.

Wilderbeast_0447a

This herd of wildebeest didn’t bother to spare us a glance as they trudged through the heat.  Reaching the waterhole was the only thing on their minds.

~~~~~

Worms_0015a

These, I believe, are Mopani Worms.  Or just ‘worms’.  One of our party was kidded into purchasing a bag of these delicacies and then tried to be a good Christian citizen and SHARE them with the rest of us.

Worms_0015b

In a moment of madness I did try one.  Much to my horror it looked like the Australian Witchetty Grub, which lives in acacia trees.  I thought that the grubs/worms had at least been cooked in something because they were brown, live Wichetty Grubs are a whitish colour. Alas wrong again..what’s new?  These worms are just left to dry out, then packaged.  No-one has suffered any ill effects, and they would probably keep you alive and make a good snack…if there was nothing else to eat.  They are worth a try if ever  in South Africa, if for no other reason it makes a topic for a post when you arrive home. 🙂
