Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Isolated-Subjects


My contribution for this week’s

Isolated Subjects


Back to Africa for some

isolated animals this week.

Don’t let the following images put you off

going on an African Safari.

Most of our sightings were much closer

than these images depict…the only

exception being the Jackal.

This is about as close as we could come to this

Black Backed Jackal.

Fairly certain this Impala is blowing a raspberry

at us as it crosses the road.

A loner zebra.

And to finish…

some isolated giraffes.

This one used to hang around our camp,

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

and peer over the fence near the gate.

She (I think) was there, or close by,

every time we went on a game drive.

She is definitely isolated from her background in this shot.






A favourite topic of mine…

Almost shooting from the hip I managed to capture

what I think is a reasonable photo of

this helicopter as it covers the Cadel Evans bike race

around the Geelong area earlier this year.

Touchdown after our flight over

the Okavango  Delta in 2014.


 Although this is Johannesburg Airport,

I am mentally and physically preparing

for my flight to Heathrow in about three weeks.


A Photo a Week Challenge: Flying





Black and White Challenge:



I have to thank the African continent,

again, this week for my entries.

On a day with a forecast temperature of 39 degrees

this ostrich family, in Kruger National Park,

was feeling the heat early in the day.

Our late afternoon flight over the Okavango Delta

provided some great photo opportunities.

I was about to forget P this week until I realised

my owl was a Pearl Spotted Owl.

Travel Theme-Cook




Travel Theme.


Our first and only night at

Lekhubu Island in Botswana… prepared us for a week of cooking by campfire at….

several other camp sites we stopped at later during our safari.

However, it did not prepare us for…

the visitors we had at those camp sites.

The smell of our meals cooking on the campfire

drew these hyenas to within 20 feet

of where we had eaten our meal.


Where’s My Backpack: Cook






Week 81


This was the sight that greeted us

on our first morning in Botswana, 2014.

One of my favourite reflection images.

Only trouble with the above image is that it is upside down.

Note the long thin branches run down

at 45 degrees on the left hand side.

Right way up…those branches are on the RHS

and I have included a fence post in the foreground.

Black and White Challenge:



These Impala at their watering hole was one

of our first 2013 sightings…

  in Kruger National Park…

 This Jackal was too nervous to come

too close to us in Botswana, 2014.
