Black and White Challenge:
Trails or Tracks.
My focus is on trails or tracks, if you like,
in South Africa.
On a game drive we regularly passed through dry creek beds…
not knowing what, or if, there was going to be any
wildlife around the next corner.
Sharing a track with these magnificent animals…
was well worth the fourteen hour flight to Africa.
It’s just sad to think that my last two subjects
may now be dead because they crossed
a poachers gun sight one day.
Many have asked
“Weren’t you frightened/threatened by the animals?“
Our answer was/is, “Never“.
It is only those who do not understand animals
have right of way and those who fail to recognise
their “get out of here” signals which all animals
demonstrate when frustrated.
After all tourists are visitors in their home and
should treat wildlife with respect
and that respect will be reciprocated.
Then they won’t eat you 😀
