An afternoon whirlwind briefly appeared
on the horizon the afternoon
we are arrived at Lekhubu Island…
…which is located in Sua Pan among
the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans
Next morning the same
North Eastern Kalahari Desert
horizon produced this sunrise.

the noon-day sun in Botswana.
Perhaps trying to shelter would be
a more suitable description.
I’m late this week because I have been
contemplating how to approach this challenge.
I was photographing the acrobatics
of this Red Weaver in Botswana, when…
…it suddenly dropped away.
I managed to captured this image
before it disappeared.
These two shots were taken only seconds apart
with different camera settings.
Changing the shutter speed to 1/200
and the aperture to f 8.0
produces a gloomier morning sky and
accentuates the sun’s rays.
And the results may be seen within seconds.
That is what I deem to be
the magic of modern photography.
African lines this week.
It was truly fascinating to see these giants
at such a close distance.
Their skin, while smooth, is like…
Botswana zebras posing for my camera.

Our first images of African wild life.
Late afternoon and like all animals
they were out for some fun.
The following year we were locked out.
Probably a good idea in hindsight because the horn
would go right through before they thought of stopping.
