Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-U

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-U

(Needs to have letters O and U in the word)

Again a random selection of U with O words.South Africa’s Drackensberg Mountains.

  My new second-hand Ford Courier Ute…first day home.

 

After an early start for nearly an hour drive

to reach the Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

for a sunrise which was rather uninspiring.

My bonus shots came as I walked

back to the car.

This rainbow formed in the east and

lasted for about two minutes.

Hard  to believe this elephant

turned rogue when his mother died

and killed six hippopotamuses.

 

 Since having a nasty removed from my scalp

in mid-November, I have been wearing

a dressing, much to my disgust,

which every now and then starts to

let me know there is a healing wound up there.

See below.

If you are about to have breakfast, lunch or dinner…

maybe wait! 🙂

 

All the medical  professionals tell me

not to worry it is ‘just some slough‘.

I would call it puss or something similar.

Thank you Cee for including the ‘ou’ combination.

I may not have thought of it otherwise.

Fortunately, it is just about healed

and today it has a mate.

Smaller, less dangerous.

But still has to heal.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-T

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-TT

(Needs to have two T’s anywhere in the word)

 
Many giraffes sighted in Africa came with

oxpeckers attached.

 


Limpy was so named because of a deformed foot.

We were told that this deformity did no hinder her

when attacking a swift-footed impala.

We did not test her ability.

 


Letters create words which create sentences

so we can communicate.

The wettest we have ever seen our block was

after a mid summer down pour.

This pool of water is where we now

park our cars….the garage.

 

Acacia trees, commonly known as wattle trees,

commence blooming in July.

 

Along with daffodils they are the first signs

that Spring is on the way.


A wattlebird on our clothesline.

 

A vignette around cherries,

 

around Corio Bay…

and around this dahlia.

One Word Photo Challenge-Manatee

~~~~~

My

Manatee

 Challenge

~~~~

manatee is…

a sea cow of tropical Atlantic coasts and estuaries, 

Not living anywhere near the tropics

let alone tropical Atlantic coastline,

I thought this one would had stumped me for posting.

However, a little more research and I discovered

that I had plenty of photos of one of

the Manatee’s nearest living relatives.

Yep!   The closest living relatives to a mantee are

the Proboscidea (elephants) and

Hyracoidea (hyraxes).

This little relative of the manatee was telling us

where to go and how quickly to get there

in no uncertain manner.

I don’t have a photo of a hyrax.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Favourites

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Favourites

~~~~~

Seeing as WordPress is taking a break I decided

to post some of my ‘starred’ photos from my Picasa library.

Geelong…

Botanic Gardens.

A sight to be seen in most gardens.

These blokes must be exceptionally fit as they smile and laugh

nearing the end of the Cadel Evans Classic in Geelong.

About as close as I am going to get to this truck.

It looks suspiciously like the Fordson Thames

which Dad bought years ago and on which

we carted thousands of bales of  hay and

thirty or forty wool clips.

An African Yellow Billed Hornbill.

Botswana leopard.

 

 Maybe a Botswana giraffe judging by the background.

Certainly not a zoo animal.

One of the most beautiful creatures on earth.

But with luck we/humans will shoot them to extinction.

😦 😦

Finally, dear old Ginger who passed away

a little over two years ago.

I had Ginger and her father Brandy for

an approximate total of 27 years.

Happy New Year

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-R

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-R

(At least 6 letters and letter R)

Random Rs from

anywhere, again, this week.

AND just noted my interpretation is partially incorrect. 

I was sssooo certain that the word

just needed to include letter R.

~~~~~

Easy one to begin…

Rhinoceros in Kruger National Park.

This maybe the modern version of

an airship waiting at an airport.

 

Freshly picked cherries.

An aerosol.

 

Eastern Rosella Parrot.

We commonly call them Rosellas.

 

Reflections.

Finally, Botswana’s giant…

Aardvark.
