Week 108


Upon seeing this week’s theme, my first thoughts were of Africa’s Gentle Giants.

Gentle enough to walk between two vehicles…

But still ready to tell you where to go

or they will really get cross.

Finally this is an experience I will never forget.

  A six ton, thirty year old male who had killed

several hippos in a fit of youthful rage

after his mother was killed or died.

And he still remembered our guide

who raised him after he lost his mother.


Pic and Word Challenge: Giants



We do get cyclones in the tropics,

that is, Queensland…

however, in Victoria we see little more

than this whirlwind…

we sighted on the

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans,

in Botswana

Like this one, ours last only a few minutes also.


Weekly Weather: Tornado
