Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Isolated-Subjects

~~~

My contribution for this week’s

Isolated Subjects

 

Back to Africa for some

isolated animals this week.

Don’t let the following images put you off

going on an African Safari.

Most of our sightings were much closer

than these images depict…the only

exception being the Jackal.

This is about as close as we could come to this

Black Backed Jackal.

Fairly certain this Impala is blowing a raspberry

at us as it crosses the road.

A loner zebra.

And to finish…

some isolated giraffes.

This one used to hang around our camp,

Sausage Tree Safari Camp

and peer over the fence near the gate.

She (I think) was there, or close by,

every time we went on a game drive.

She is definitely isolated from her background in this shot.

Our first and only night at

Lekhubu Island in Botswana… prepared us for a week of cooking by campfire at….

several other camp sites we stopped at later during our safari.

However, it did not prepare us for…

the visitors we had at those camp sites.

The smell of our meals cooking on the campfire

drew these hyenas to within 20 feet

of where we had eaten our meal.

Week 81

Reflections

This was the sight that greeted us

on our first morning in Botswana, 2014.

One of my favourite reflection images.

Only trouble with the above image is that it is upside down.

Note the long thin branches run down

at 45 degrees on the left hand side.

Right way up…those branches are on the RHS

and I have included a fence post in the foreground.

These Impala at their watering hole was one

of our first 2013 sightings…

  in Kruger National Park…

 This Jackal was too nervous to come

too close to us in Botswana, 2014.

A few years ago, 2014, to be precise…

 we had a day trip to Victoria Falls.

On our home journey,

at the Zimbabwe and Botswana border crossing

I thought I had lost my passport between

the Zimbabwe and Botswana check points.

After a five to ten minute delay…I found my passport

in my pocket (oops!)…we were on our way again.

  

Hardly had we commenced than we sighted this

family of elephants trying to find a break in the traffic

so they could get to the river for a drink.


Not one person thanked me for delaying our trip

so that we were able to capture this sight.  

All they could think of was me and my lost passport.  

One bloke among five women!!!

MGW…was leading the charge.  

I had no hope 😀  😀  😀

Some of the roads I have taken either

for pleasure of photography.

Even travelling this road I did not

get any close to the eagle.

Mid morning in the fog.

This could be this morning.

The Midland Highway joins Ballarat and Geelong.

The end of a pleasant day out with Number 2. Son.

The road runs between the gap in the trees.

I did lighten the photo but it took away from the sunset.
