Some consider cricket a dull game…however,

a closer look  can find plenty of action

even in a dull game.

The bowler airborne in his delivery stride.

Not sure if this is a bowler midway

through his follow through,

or if the player is airborne trying to catch a ball.

 

I can hear the red cap in the background

yelling “Catchit!!!”

However, no sign of the ball.

Has the batsman played and missed?

Or did he get an edge to it?

The way the wicket keeper and first slip

are positioned there may have been an edge.

Catch the ball…batsman out!

There does not appear to be much action in this photo

until you notice the speed blur.


The wind this group of cyclists produced

nearly blew me off-balance.

 

Across the face and a sharp turn.

 

Wipeout!!

 

This really look likes fun.

You don’t even need water…until

the downward journey begins.

I have ave opted for wildlife again today,

though mostly big cats this time.Our last excursion (in 2013) was to Tshukudu Lodge,

about twenty minutes from our base at

Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

We were greeted by this cheetah.

She is wild, feeds herself and

was not around for the next group.

Although…

after a hard morning of modelling and

having her ears patted

she followed us back to the Lodge

where she availed herself of

refreshments from the pond.

A local kudu up close.

This cheetah was at Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre.

Have you noticed the pearly white?

Leading the really big cats is Limpy

who was/is my favourite lioness.

She died just under twelve months after this was taken.

 

The King presiding over his pride, which…

blocking the road when first sighted.

 

How many lions can  you see?

Okay, take my photo, but I am not smiling.

By the way there is at least 6 of us in the photo above.
