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.

Both lion cubs, lioness and tourists had

twenty minutes of shear joy.

Cubs because they were able to roll in

elephant dung and Mum wasn’t growling.

Mum, because the kids were out of her hair.

Tourists….well need I say more?

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-M

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-M

(Needs to have 2 M’s in the word
(mammal, monument, moment, hammer, summit))

Random Ms this week.This was the style of accommodation

we experienced during our first trip to Africa.

To curtail cost we were back to tents, stretchers

and sleeping bags for about one-third of the safari.

During my trip to France this year we were told that

it is not uncommon to find ammunition dumps

like this one outside many villages on France.

This was the first of two we were shown.

About two or three weeks since it was last cleared.

 Selling commonplace items like these oil cans,

on Facebook, was not hard.

What was hard to believe was

the price people were willing

to pay for them.

 

Tucked in behind the red bus is

Britain’s House of Commons…

if my research is correct.

Finally, my commentary about these photos

is another MM word! 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge-Temporary

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Temporary

~~~~~

My temporary photos are from Botswana.

With tent in hand our guide walked over and pointed out

what he claimed to be a hippopotamus track out of the

water…and then promptly dropped the tent

in the middle of the track.

We were next door neighbours and totally safe.

No self respecting hippo would come near us…

not with the nocturnal sounds emanating

from our fearless leader in the tent next door.

At Savuti Camp guide No. 2 is stalking a kudu

which wanted to follow its regular path to water.

The kudu is almost invisible (camouflaged)

over the guide’s left shoulder.

 The kudu did find the long way around our temporary camp.

Some of the bird life, particularly the Hornbills,

enjoyed some easy won food during our stay.

Finally, we enjoy some respite from the sun

during our lunch break.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-November-Words

November Words

Two dormant pups.

       I think salubrious would be

a great adjective to describe

the Burj Al Arab.

       An earmarked rhinoceros.

       

Schönbrunn Palace was certainly owned by influential people of the era.

      A fun-loving… 

Red Headed Weaver from our

Botswana travels.

These eyes were all taken in

Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa.

The lions, both cubs and adults were no more

than twenty feet from our vehicle.

Week 110

Rock

My first rocks are from South Africa.

I often wonder how these rocks managed

to erode to this shape.

The small one, on top, would not

look out of place among

the Northern Territory’s Devils Marbles.

 

South Africa’s rocks almost always

were hiding something worthwhile viewing.

Back home again.

I have already posted these rocks this week.

Hard to believe that many years ago I almost ran,

bouncing barefoot from rock to rock,

up the track leading to the top.
