Wordless Wednesday-‘Rogue’ Elephant

Remember the recent story of an elephant in Kruger Park being put down because he attacked a car?

Click the link below, watch the video and make up your own mind regarding who was at fault.



This photo was taken at 85 mm focal length….reasonably close to mother and calf.

Everything we did was at the behest of our guides who put the safety of their clients and the animals as their first priority.

I found the link to this story on

Africa Geographic.

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

It used to be Canada as I spent a summer there when I was younger….why, because I enjoyed my time travelling and it did remind me of Oz at times.  Right now I am in love with South Africa, or more so, the animals.  I would love to be a guide in Kruger Park or close by.  Even if it was only for a few months.


Music or silence while working?

Depends what I am doing.  Sometimes noise to block out distractions other times don’t make any noise while I am concentrating!


What is your favorite color?

Bright ones….especially blues and greens.


Do you have a bucket list?  What are your three items?  A bucket list are things you want to do before you die.

Not really.  But I would like to continue travelling over the next few years, even if only for a few weeks each year.  However, sometimes it is hard to have all that one desires.
