Word-of-Day-Challenge-Hilarious

~~~~~~~

hilarious

extremely amusing.

~~~~~

Whatever it was these two Hornbills…

…were talking about, they thought it was hilarious;

alternating between this pose and a pose

of wings raised a little more than they are now;

heads down and bobbing up and down

just as though they had heard the funniest joke.

Cee’s-FFChallenge-Ate-or-Eight

~~~~~

Eight kilometres, or miles, to come or go,

or the eighth post

*****

When the minute hand reaches number 8

the time is 40 minutes past the hour

or only 20 minutes until the next hour has passed.

*****

It may have only been campfire fare but we

ate well on our Botswana Safari.

*****

A wet Sunday afternoon in

a Murano Restaurant…

…where one-and-all ate well,

drank well, and became

merrier as the afternoon drew to a close

ugly

~~~~~

I would be…

 

…hard pressed…

…to find any beauty…

 

….in these arachnids

although many would disagree.

 

 

Even this one, long embedded in resin

made me jump when I saw how close

it was to my hand.

Not a lot of water however, Victoria Falls

still made magnificent viewing.

Orca and Calf

Just in case seeing the calf was difficult in BW.

I always thought this was a beer bottle.

However the words

flavoured beverage,

have me wondering.

Whatever the contents it would

take some drinking.

All the way across the Indian Ocean

to see a Giant Aardvark

in Botswana

 

A couple of hours northwest of Geelong

is the Giant Koala.

Sadly the art work is no longer.

 

 

Technically I believe my Kalahari Scrub Robin

is in the wrong half of the frame.

It should have room to run into.

However to include its shadow

the rule had to be ignored.

One-Word-Sunday-Empty

~~~~~~~

empty

containing nothing,

not filled or occupied.

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans…

…are located on the North Eastern edge of

Botswana’s Kalahari Desert.

 

We drove for several hours over what appeared

to be empty acres of salt.

 

The only time we knew there was life was when

we sighted some wildlife.

 

Lekhubu Island, our destination,

was a pleasant site on the horizon…

…which only temporarily blocked our view of the emptiness…

 

…all round us.

The emptiness did make for a beautiful sunset…

…followed by an equally beautiful sunrise

in the morning.

 

Packed and ready to go,

we were soon out of salt pans…

…however, apart from the occasional tree

the landscape was still very empty.

FOWChallenge-Swim

~~~~~

swim

*  propel the body through water by using the limbs,
or (in the case of a fish or other aquatic animal) by
using fins, tail, or other bodily movement.
*  be immersed in or covered with liquid.

****

It was difficult to tell which definition

Hippos were adhering to…

 

…if they were not actually swimming

they were certainly immersed in water.


These fish were a totally different story being

both immersed and swimming in,

their watery home in the lobby

of our Vancouver Island Hotel.
