These cockatoos may not call this tree their home…

however, they certainly look at home in this shot.

 

On the other hand this parrot is certainly at home.

At least until breeding season is over.

In 2013 we were told about the

Southern Masked (or African Masked) Weaver’s

nest building practices.

If Mrs Weaver does not like it she pulls it apart

and Mr Weaver has to start again.

In 2014, in Botswana we watched in awe

as about 20 Mr Weavers worked

frantically to prepare

their nesting homes under the

guidance of their partner.

This all took place in a tree,

in a busy shopping centre.

The photo is not up-side down.

One Word Photo Challenge-Hippopotamus

~~~~~

Hippopotamus.

~~~~

This hippo is not laughing at me.

But when one hippo cracked a joke and

 the other fifteen or twenty thought it funny…

 

the sounds they made

sure sounded like laughter.

 

These two…just content filling their bellies.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Bridge

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Bridge

~~~~~

Seeing was I was in Botswana’s Okavango Delta last week,

I decided to stay here for this post also. 

 Before we crossed the bridge…

 over one of the Delta’s water courses…

 

we had to obey these signs.

And this is why.

However, it did not stop some from

clowning around for a photo.

 

It was also a bridge which required users

to keep a firm grip on their belongings.  

Small cameras were history if dropped.

 

These poles…

intrigued me until…

I realised it was the old bridge.

This looks much sturdier and

we all made it over and back again.

I have a feeling our guides drove us

over this bridge the next day.
