Misery Creek Bridge.

 A Few years ago a falling tree bought more misery

to what remained of Misery Creek Bridge.

 

 

Sydney’s…

…Harbour Bridge.

 

 

In Botswana we came across

new bridge sporting this sign…

 

We walked slowly across this bridge only stopping

to admire the old bridge just visible on the left.

Chapel Bridge, Lucerne.

I have a dislike for…

…spiders.

 

However, I think this is creepier

and it was in our garden.

Crimson Breasted Shrike,

before…

…and after cropping.

 

 

A Kruger National Park

Zebra…..before

….and after cropping and editing.

 

Finally…

Straight out of camera…

 

 

First crop.

I  estimated that horn to be

around three feet in length.

 

 

 

Second crop.

This rhino (and its mates) have

a 24/7 military guard.

The guards have orders to

shoot first and asked questions later.

We did not test the veracity

of this statement!

FOWChallenge-Fiction

~~~~~

fiction

literature in the form of prose, especially novels,
that describes imaginary events and people.
~~~~~

As you can see from some

of the titles in my library

…I am a hard core fiction reader.

Fiction based on fact and fiction set

in a place I have visited or lived near

add to the genre’s enjoyment. 

I read for enjoyment

Just finished breakfast one morning

in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. 

A Kudu appears running top speed

along the water’s edge about 50 metres away. 

A few seconds alter an African Wild Dog

comes loping along. 

We watched them out of sight in stunned silence,

then noticed two more Wild Dogs enter

through an opening in the trees.


Our guide told us that the Johnny Come Latelys

were probably supposed to take up the chase.

Due to their late arrival they had

no sight or scent of their mate.

The pair eventually found their way back

to our camp, some 200 metres from where

we first sighted them, and spent precious time

trying to pick up the scent of the third, or first, dog.

the inability of the pair, dogs 2 and 3,

to collaborate properly, in all likelihood

cost them a feed that day.
