it is difficult not to see it.
This is a spot the teenager photo 🙂
At least that is what our teens looked
liked for most of that decade!
of our first African Safari…
which held Africa’s tourist trade…
In essence, these sights were the ‘glue’…
for without these sightings to see and photograph…
Africa’s tourist trade would fall dramatically.
Which is why poaching of any description,
or trade in the products of these animals, must cease.
In my opinion and that of others as well.
On our last night in South Africa were
called out on an unexpected game drive.
During the drive word came through of a sighting
of two lion cubs nearby.
We found them.
And after twenty minutes of being the only car on site
and twenty minutes of photographing
these two playful lion cubs…
thank goodness for digital storage…
we decided to head back to camp.
As we did so the sun was well on its way below the horizon
and we arrived back in twilight.
After our first African Safari,
this giraffe which always waited at, or near, the gate
to our camp looking over the fence.
My colleague used this beautiful face as a reason
for NOT going to visit Africa.
I was shocked!!
My contribution for this week’s
I did post these in my BW Tuesday post.
are African souvenirs.
an Ily Coffee Shop
in Amsterdam in 2016.
Have opted for Golden Hour photos
Only a matter of weeks ago and probably
through our living room window.
An African setting sun.
However we did not stop to take a sunset photo.
We were photographing the leopard lying on the limb
in the top right hand corner.
Below is a cropped and over brightened
All other photos the leopard is quite visible.
I have often said that I would have gone home happy,
on this, the third day of our Safari.
Then things only got better.
