corridor

a long passage in a building from which
doors lead into rooms.

An external internal corridor at

Mt Sheba Resort,

South Africa.

Melbourne’s

Royal Arcade

could be considered a corridor

It’s certainly an internal passage of sorts

with doors leading to rooms

which we called shops.

warty

A hard rough lump growing on the skin,
caused by infection with certain viruses
and occurring typically on thehands or feet.
~~~~~


Is a warthog warty?

 

Well, sort of, according to Google 

However, the “warts” that give warthogs their

name are actually protective bumps.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Speed

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

speed

the rate at which someone or something moves
or operates or is able to move or operate
~~~~~


While I would prefer to be in a vehicle

when trying to outrun

an African elephant

which can move at a speed

of 40 kilometres per hour…

 

 

…it would need to be a speedy vehicle

to outrun a cheetah

which can attain speeds

of 80–130 kilometres an hour.

~~~~~

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Typical

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

typical

having the distinctive qualities of a particular
type of person or thing.

~~~~~


African elephants have larger ears

than their Asian  cousin. 

They are, in fact, simply larger.

 

 

Age doesn’t matter all Labradors love

to eat, sleep and play.

30th Wedding Anniversary

Four years ago we experienced

a Hot Air Balloon lift off for our

thirtieth Wedding Anniversary.

The Northern White Crowned Shrike

was captured while visiting

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

Sausage Tree Camp

forms part of

South Africa’s

Greater Kruger National Park.

The African Harrier Hawk posed for us

for a few minutes before it thought it wiser…

…to take to the air as gracefully…

..as it could.

Both birds were sighted

while staying at

Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

This week I have chosen birds which are all,

according to Google, smaller than a breadbox

which are usually about 16 inches wide

by 8 to 9 inches high and deep ,

or 40cm x 20cm x 20cm.


I would have thought the

Northern White Crowned Shrike

was considerably smaller than its

Crimson Breasted cousin.

However, at 19-23 cm long and

tipping the scales between

42 to 58 grams it more than

holds its place with its cousin.

The Crimson Breasted Shrike

is a smaller bird than I remembered it to be.

Measuring 23cm in length and

weighing 40-57 grams it is roughly

the same size as the

Northern White Crowned Shrike.

Bread box: 40cm x 20cm x 20cm

 

The Kalahari Scrub Robin

measures only 16 cm in length and

weighs between 17 and 23g 

Bread box: 40cm x 20cm x 20cm

At 14 cm, or 5.5in, long and weighing

only 8–13 grams (0.28–0.46 oz),

the Superb Fairy Wren

Bread box: 40cm x 20cm x 20cm
