Britain’s Royals may hang out at…

Buckingham Palace. 

Possibly sipping tea from Royal Doulton crockery.

Not certain that this Royal Doulton, though.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Ubiquitous

 

 

During our first trip to Africa…we were told that the Impala was Africa’s rabbit.

Therefore the term Ubiquitous…


seems appropriate…found everywhere

FOWChallenge-Bound

~~~~~

Bounding movement is my focus today.

And where better to look for ‘bound’ than African wildlife. 

This impala bounding along with us for a while.

Kudu burning off some evening energy. 

 

As were these Springbok on the outskirts of Johannesburg. 

This was our introduction to African wildlife.

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.

One Word Photo Challenge-Drink

~~~~~

Drink.

Apart from this week’s theme…
impala_drinking_0329a

my entry this week was inspired by a similar photo

which won the

Wild Life Photographer of the Year 

award, some years back.

impala_drinking_0329bThe quality of my photo is nowhere near as good

however, it was my first and only sighting

of Impala at a waterhole in 2013.

So I think it not bad. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge-Motion

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Motion

~~~~~

I have posted all sorts of motion this week.

corio-bay_5803The bow wave, on Corio Bay, indicates motion.

runningImpala_0409aThis impala was more energetic…

impala_0399as were these.

elephant_0960aThe motion created by the clear off head wave is gorgeous…

as long as one is not too close.

elephants_0453In the afternoon sun…motionless was the way to go.

And we all held our collective breaths when this motion began.

And we all hoped that the baby,

about two feet at the shoulders,

would make it across.

They were snorkling to Namibia
