nourish

provide with the food or other substances necessary
for growth, health, and good condition

I’m sure Labradors believe…

 

…that other than sleep…

…they should have plenty of nourishment…

…between dawn and dusk.

It had to be near, or below, zero to freezing

While we were only inside for a few minutes,

the forty below room did not feel that cold.

While the signed maintained it was 40 below,

the temperature reading was only

a little over 20 degrees below.

~~~~~

solitude

the state or situation of being alone.
~~~~~

I’m certain I can still feel the solitude I felt…

…when waiting for, and after sunset…

…in the late evening hours and the

early hours of each morning…

 

 

…spent in Alaska’s inside passage.

FriendlyFriday-Smoke-and-Mirrors

~~~~~

Images from Alaska and Africa,

Botswana, to be exact.

My first three images are from…

 

…near or inside the…

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre

These two images are one and the same

and were an early morning capture

at Kwa Nokeng Lodge

Win Botswana.

 

I think either one would make a nice wall mount

and talking point.

Some smoke and mirrors here

thanks to Photoshop.

I have been informed that Baobabs

do not grow near a body of water.

However, I cannot find a definitive answer

to that comment.

When I first saw this theme…

…I immediately thought of this

form of communication.


Then nonverbal came to mind.

Definite signs of tenderness and caring

for each other are being exhibited.

Without context this is simply an image of two birds.

These two would look at each other and

exchange a few words, as in this photo.

They would then look straight ahead

while furiously bobbing their heads up and down.

When they had ‘laughed’ at the joke

they would start another story,

repeating the cycle every thirty seconds or so.

Must have been short jokes.

 

When ears are shaken in this manner,

know that you have been warned.

This elephant is definitely wanting its own

space and is telling tourists to get lost,

in no uncertain manner.

If unheeded the next move is to

lay the ears flat against its head and charge.

 

This youngsters parents were asking her

to stop so I could take my photos.

I felt her reply was not

a come hither gesture, however,

it is just another form of

nonverbal communication.

One-Word-Sunday-Bright

I have used nature to provide me with

some brightness this week.

Amazing how bright an area look with

some yellow or other bright colour…

…popping among the greenery.

 

 

This yellow and purple combination

was captured at  Denali in Alaska.

The above image (marigolds?)

is from Juneau in Alaska.

Geelong grown Dahlias…

…and way past its best a home grown anemone.

Finally, nothing could be much brighter than

our very own starr as it lights up

a lone catamaran

on Corio Bay.
