Black and White Challenge.

Workers of various sorts.

Building a house.

 

Volunteers at a fundraising barbeque.

 

 

I always thought the spotters job

could be the most exhilarating

and at the same time scariest

job on a game safari drive.

Britain’s Royals may hang out at…

Buckingham Palace. 

Possibly sipping tea from Royal Doulton crockery.

Not certain that this Royal Doulton, though.

Workers from all over…

A gondolier.

My limited knowledge of lumberjacks’ work

tells me that they actually did climb trees

as part of every day work.

Memory could be way off though.

Happy to be corrected.

Beefeater Guide Tour

Amid that crowd is a Beefeater at work

guiding visitors around

the Tower of London.

 

While in Europe each guide carried a flag of some kind. 

Trouble was there was so much to see

and dawdle over, the coloured flag

was often forgotten (by me). 

All guides were very knowledgeable but

sometimes it was just nice to walk and look

without the constant commentary.

Our favourite African guide,

planning the next day. 

Or was he offering up thanks for

a successful day just ended?

SUNDAY STILLS PHOTOS: Work

Some colour and BW shots from our backyard.

During summer months we often are visited

by various members of the parrot family

seeking a feed of grass bulbs.

Just had to include this shot after heavy rainfall.

 

We have often enjoyed this scene during the past few months.

However, Taji’s kennel now needs some repairs

as the visible wall is being damaged

during these togetherness sessions.

A few months ago our backyard became a killing field

when one Sunday morning a mud lark

annoyed a hawk just too much.

I have ave opted for wildlife again today,

though mostly big cats this time.Our last excursion (in 2013) was to Tshukudu Lodge,

about twenty minutes from our base at

Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

We were greeted by this cheetah.

She is wild, feeds herself and

was not around for the next group.

Although…

after a hard morning of modelling and

having her ears patted

she followed us back to the Lodge

where she availed herself of

refreshments from the pond.

A local kudu up close.

This cheetah was at Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre.

Have you noticed the pearly white?

Leading the really big cats is Limpy

who was/is my favourite lioness.

She died just under twelve months after this was taken.

 

The King presiding over his pride, which…

blocking the road when first sighted.

 

How many lions can  you see?

Okay, take my photo, but I am not smiling.

By the way there is at least 6 of us in the photo above.

I turned to nature for details

again this week.A Red Headed Weaver

 

Not often we can get this close to  a giraffe.


The gives a trunk a whole new look.


A tusk

I did not know that twice the circumference of

an elephant’s front foot equalled the distance

from its shoulder to the ground.

 Or, that its front foot is circular…


while its rear feet were oval in shape.


And while I took  those photos it was

keeping an eye on me.

 

Admittedly I have edited this photo

to accentuate the stripes.


However, I could not have achieved that clarity

if it had been the other end of the zebra. 

This is both ends of one animal.
