South Africa

Rhinoceros Horn

Khama Rhino Sanctuary,


I captured these horns at

Sausage Tee Safari Camp


…where we were greeted every morning

by our friendly, resident giraffe.









(of a person or movement) awkward; clumsy.


Many baby animals are rather ungainly

in their early hours of life.


The giraffe, however, is the only one,

which comes to mind, which still looks

ungainly in their adult years.


Fandango’s One-Word Challenge:…Ungainly





A hazard is a source or a situation with the potential for harm
in terms of human injury or ill-health, damage to property,
damage to the environment, or a combination of these.


Different countries…different hazards.

Images from our first African Safari

are my choice for my

Future Nostalgic Post

this week.

Our first elephant sighting in

Kruger National Park


On day 3 in Kruger National Park, we sighted this leopard.

I always said I would have gone home very happy

after this sighting.

Sausage Tree Safari Camp


Such a beautiful creature.

Our last morning at Sausage Tree Safari Camp

and this elephant bade us farewell

waking us at 0500 on his way

the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas
of a photographic image,
especially as rendered by a particular lens.

Lilac Breasted Roller

sighted in

Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

Also plentiful in South Africa’s

Kruger National Park.

A split rock at Lekhubu Island,



Layer upon layer of limestone rock supports


Great Ocean Road.


By the time I read of these rock stacks along

Victoria’s Great Ocean Road

I’m sure many of the tourists who had created

them had returned and knocked down

their creation.


Balancing rocks in South Africa’s,

Kruger or Greater Kruger National Park.


Decorative rocks at the edge of

Warrnambool’s tourist lake,

Lake Pertobe.


Closer to home…in fact nearly at our back door…

well, about 10 km away…

…is Dog Rocks.


If I have asked why it’s called Dog Rocks,

I have not received a satisfactory answer. 


Dog Rocks is very popular with photography enthusiasts,

for both day and night photography

as it is far enough away from city lights

that no ambient light can intefer.


My final rock is/was Ayres Rock.

It is now known as Uluru.

Climbing Ayres Rock was almost mandatory in 1975. 

Over my left shoulder is another formation

known as The Olgas. 

Both are well worth visiting.


One Word Sunday Challenge:...Rock









cease work or movement in order to relax,
sleep, or recover strength.

Whether domestic…

…or fighting for survival in the African wilds…

…or living a life of ease in captivity,

all animals seem to learn the task

of resting early on, in life.
