African trios from Botswana…and South Africa

Some oxpecker getting a free feed and ride.

 

Hey guys…the camera’s over here.

Giraffes know where the camera is.

 

And there is a trio here as well.

At last.

Perhaps not quite a smile though.

A variety of drinks.Hot and cold drinks abroad The Q Train for

our Wedding anniversary earlier in the year.

I suspect a French breakfast at an Ibis Hotel…last year.

A warm day in Nice called for a cold drink.

 A Sunday morning coffee break was called for…

around 10 AM.

Even though it was raining this  drink was gratefully accepted.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-October-Words-Yr3

~~~~~

 

Words from all over.  

And a bit late for October 

I have never seen so much water flowing, or gushing,

over Hopkins Falls as there was in August 2017.


This is what I think of when I see the word aperture.

That little hole in the centre of a lens.

  

Frontier…a line or border separating two countries.

At Hill 60 in Belgium, the white line in the foreground

indicates the British front line.

Most of our group are in No Man’s Land,

however our tour guide is standing on Germany’s Front line.

 

 

Perhaps not triplets in the truest sense of the word,

however, it was the best I could do.

A ‘normal’ tapered building,

Burj Khalifa, in Dubai.

 

Normally I think of some that is tapered as being thinner

at the far end, usually the top. 

Lochnagar Crater, on the Somme Battlefields,

is still thinner at the far end

it just happens to be the bottom

Thursday’s Special: October Words-Yr3

Lens-Artist-PC-Blending-In-or-Standing-Out

 

~~~~~

Mostly blending shots this week..

I think this is a Crimson Shrike which did not

blend into anything that I recall.

The Springbok Duiker, on the other hand

was almost always invisible.


I would have thought an animal as tall as

the surrounding vegetation would

be easy to spot…always.

However, this one proved me wrong. 

A few paces into the taller bush and it was gone. 

May have been standing behind a tree laughing at me.

Whatever the case it was invisible.

Time for a late afternoon nap. 

Can you see all six? 

That’s why guides tell us not to leave the vehicle.

Tails and tongues.

This view was described as the (w)hole of Africa

I never did find out which spelling was meant, however,

judging by the chuckles that came with the comment

there was every chance there was no ‘W’.

More eagle than tail…I fear

And I just love this shot

Some random beautiful and bigs…

The Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Big and beautiful, although

in the process of telling us to move on.

Finally, the Sydney Opera House.
