Daily Prompt-Costume

Today a quick visit to London then

off to Africa for costumes.A Beefeater at the Tower of London.

Outdoor entertainment at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

This group of young entertainers danced and

sang their way through many songs…

and costume changes during their performance

on the last day of what we thought was

our first and last visit to Africa.

Monkey

 Challenge

You would  think that…butter wouldn’t melt in its mouth,

wouldn’t you?

 

These shots taken just after it had dropped down

out of the tree and pinched the apple

MGW had on her hand bag.

We laugh (a bit) about it now,

however, if it had taken  the whole bag,

money passport etc….it may

have been a different story.

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.

One Word Photo Challenge-Lizard

~~~~~

My

Lizard

 Challenge

~~~~

No lizards to show this week, however, as many Australian lizards do belong to the dragon family I have decided on dragons as my alternate theme this week.Dragons can come inside your house

and cause all sorts of mayhem if there are

no dragon friendly people inside.

I’m sure this one was the cause of much

trouble in bygone years.

 I found this dragon in London supporting

some type of canon or mortar.

No doubt again designed to cause mayhem.
