Blacks and Whites today.

I probably have no taste in art at all but l like this

Spiderweb in Canola Crop image…

particularly the BW version.

Too busy?  Or about right?

Another I like.

Camellia

 

 

There must be another name for

Red Hot Poker,

but it’s too hot to search.

This looks so refreshing.

Tuesday-PC-Wk135_ Memories

~~~~~~

 

It was a toss-up but decided to stay in Africa

for my memories post

Scuba diving in Botswana.

 

The longest Rhino horn my eyes have sighted

Our first close encounter with lions.

Not sure who got the biggest shock…our driver or the lioness.

‘Limpy’ as she was known was on the track around a corner

and very nearly was run over.  But she settled

about 15-20 feet away and posed for photos.

A zebra crossing in Kruger National Park.

And last, but by no means least…the cubs.Meet Nosy and Rosy…my name for these two cubs.

Their mother, Limpy, shooed  them down to  watch the strange tourists

on the condition they sat on the elephant dung

which was about 10-15 feet from us.

This was an unexpected, last night, game drive.

We sat in near silence, our cameras clicking away madly.

After about twenty minutes we had to leave as the sun was going down.

A memory we will never forget as we had

an African artist convert one image to a drawing

for our living room wall, so the memory lives on.

Two firsts from our first African Safari in 2013. Our first elephant in Kruger National Park.

Not the best of images however, definitely a first.

Late on day three we received notification that

there had been a sighting…behind us

This was the sighting.

What I call my National Geographic shot 🙂

Our first and only leopard sighting.

Black and White Challenge.

Tails and tongues.

This view was described as the (w)hole of Africa

I never did find out which spelling was meant, however,

judging by the chuckles that came with the comment

there was every chance there was no ‘W’.

More eagle than tail…I fear

And I just love this shot
