Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Three

~~~~~

African threes this week.

The Matriarch

 

A road block…and two sets of threes

Zebras really know how to posse for tourists.

 

Three mongoose, or should that be mongeese?

On watch.

African trios from Botswana…and South Africa

Some oxpecker getting a free feed and ride.

 

Hey guys…the camera’s over here.

Giraffes know where the camera is.

 

And there is a trio here as well.

At last.

Perhaps not quite a smile though.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-October-Words-Yr3

~~~~~

 

Words from all over.  

And a bit late for October 

I have never seen so much water flowing, or gushing,

over Hopkins Falls as there was in August 2017.


This is what I think of when I see the word aperture.

That little hole in the centre of a lens.

  

Frontier…a line or border separating two countries.

At Hill 60 in Belgium, the white line in the foreground

indicates the British front line.

Most of our group are in No Man’s Land,

however our tour guide is standing on Germany’s Front line.

 

 

Perhaps not triplets in the truest sense of the word,

however, it was the best I could do.

A ‘normal’ tapered building,

Burj Khalifa, in Dubai.

 

Normally I think of some that is tapered as being thinner

at the far end, usually the top. 

Lochnagar Crater, on the Somme Battlefields,

is still thinner at the far end

it just happens to be the bottom

Tuesday Photo Challenge

Future

~~

During our first safari in Africa…we all agreed that without the animals…

Africa provided very little to see

that we could not see at home.

Or at least in other closer countries.

I firmly believe that the future of

African tourism (at least) lies with

these babies of their species.

Giraffe and Elephant…Botswana 2014.

Lion Cubs…Greater Kruger National Park…2013.

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Harmony

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Harmony

~~~~~

I have been out most of the day and begin

with a couple or re-posts.maggie_0800

The harmony of  our backyard is severely strained when

anything, or one, tries to come between Maggie and her food.

It’s moments like this which can also stretch a friendship.

These oxpeckers live happily on giraffes.

The harmony and discipline witnessed, and read about,

within an elephant families is adorable.

Apologies if you are getting tired of my elephant photos.

I think they are one of Africa’s most gorgeous, gentle animals.

Although there are times when they have told us

they are not happy to see us.
