We named this cub ‘Nosy’

and his sister became became known as ‘Rosy’


Mum ‘Limpy’ okayed Nosy to go

and watch the tourists.


And what better place to watch tourists from

but a pile of Elephant dung.



A few minutes latter Nosy was joined by Rosy.


Together they played for us

until just before sundown.


One Word Sunday Challenge:  Nosy




This pair of Yellow Hornbills were having

a great conversation

After a brief chat, where I am sure

they were telling jokes,

their wings would spread further than is this image

and their heads would furiously bob

up and down for a few seconds.

Then the cycle was repeated again and again.





Eagle eyed readers will pick where

I have merge two photos


Storm in Geelong no rain where this was taken

Again caught without a wide enough lens.

But lucky to get any shots of this rainbow.

Appeared in a hurry.

Departed at similar speed.
