I’m not sure if this is a one photo challenge or not.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…
I could not go past these photos for
my Magic challenge this week.
the call came that we were being taken on
an unexpected game drive.
It was not long before we found Limpy the Lioness.
We came around a sharp bend in the track and
nearly ran over her a few day prior.
I’m still not sure who was frightened most…
our driver or Limpy.
until he spotted the tourists.
taking cover behind all types of foliage.
When he reached a pile of elephant dung
the excitement was to much.
He just had to have a roll in it.
It tasted so good that Rosy also joined him
to see what he was doing.
And there, about 15 feet from our vehicle
the two cubs played spot the tourist,
while the only sound emanating from
any of us was that of cameras
frantically capturing the scene.
And that, my friends,
is the way wildlife should be shot.
These shots were taken in early October 2013.
Unfortunately, by mid September 2014, Limpy was dead.
Euthanized, by veterinarians due to disease.
However, we will always remember the
Our football season is over for 2016…
however fans and players all enjoy a good game of football.
Busking…for the young at heart.
While half a world away these impalas…
certainly enjoyed themselves in Kruger National Park.
Black and White Challenge:
The Okavango Delta provided me with inspiration this week.
A bend or curve ion the river.
Similar for the track.
Almost a circle of elephants.
Finally, some more bends/curves in the river.
African Lilac Breasted Roller
is my pastel subject this week.
When I first sighted the Roller it was just another bird
against a hot sunny South African sky.
did not allow my eyes to see the colours.
It was not until I arrived home and saw the photos
on my computer that I appreciated its colours.
Although at nearly ground level and only 30-40 metres away,
the colours of this Roller were much easier to see
when sighted in Botswana’s Okavango Delta region
the following year.
