I just drooled when I saw today’s Word of the Day.

Followers will know…

…elephant photos.

Who knows how many passed by during the night.

Some outdoor scenes

from Botswana.

Sunset at Lekhubu Island.

 

Our campsite at Lekhubu Island.

 

 

 

During a game drive from one of our Okavango Delta camps

we came across these elephants.

Our guides estimated we sighted

over 1,000 elephants that day.

Simply fascinating.

Our flight over The Okavango Delta…

…was equally as fascinating…

 

 

…as our game drives.

As always size is relative.

Baby, baby elephant would still weigh

between 100-200 kg (220-440 lbs). 

At birth they weigh around 90 kg/200 pounds

 

An African Dung Beetle.

Agapanthus flowers consist of many smaller flowers.

Bees can still fit inside these smaller flowers,

brushing tiny stamen to ensure pollen

is carried to and received from,

other plants.
