The tree casting this shadow has been removed…

…and the Church is now surrounded

by a used car lot.

Seeing out the rest of its days

in the shade of an old gum tree.

Where sheep can be found during

the hottest part of a summer day.

Botswana’s Kalahari Scrub Robin

casting a shadow much larger

than its actual size.

 

A Geelong Church which has been

converted to a car dealership.

No more shadows because

the tree has been demolished.

Some

Small, Smaller, Smallest fauna

from Africa.

The Masked Weaver, 11–14.5 cm (4.3–5.7 in) long,

which makes it nearly the same length

as the Scrub Robin.

However, at 35 grams, the Weaver weighs

nearly twice as much.

The Scrub Robin is roughly the same length

as the Weaver, however, at just 17–23 grams

it is the Roboin is the smaller of the two.

The of my images today is the Dung Beetle,

which varies in size from 5mm to 30mm,

or about 0.2 to 1.2 inches.

  Some dung beetles can bury dung 250 times

their own mass in one night.

In early morning sun at Lekhubu Island, Botswana,

trying to capture a photograph of the

fast moving small Kalahari Scrub Robin,

was difficult to say the least.

One second it appeared calm.

Then it was off in a flurry of movement and dirt

as it darted away on its next crazy run.

 

After nearly 100 shots I was left with images

of the ground upon which my Robin

was standing a split second earlier

and many others, like this one.

Almost a total miss.

It took patience and perseverance

to capture some half decent images

of my subject.

An early morning shadow from the

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and

Lekhubu Island’s…

flighty Kalahari Scrub Robin

At the other end of the day we begin our flight over

the Okavango Delta

at the Maun Airport.

In late afternoon both elephants and trees

cast long shadows.

 

 

Finally, a home grown shadow.

Possibly the first time I photographed a shadow. 

Sadly the tree is no longer. 

I thought the church had disappeared also.

However, Google of February 2018 says differently. 

Twelve months is a long time though.

I distinctly remember saying that I

had a shot of where it was..

after taking this photo.

What’s not there is…

this Kalahari Scrub Robin

at Lekhubu Island in Botswana.

Note the dirt/sand kicked up as it accelerates away.

Just Missed

 

In 2014 we spent a night at Lekhubu Island,

which is located in Botswana’s

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.


kalahari-scrub-robin_0013a

The morning of our departure this Kalahari Scrub Robin

was moving rapidly around the camp in search of sustenance.

Note the dirt flying up as he scampers away in this shot.

kalahari-scrub-robin_0052

This was to be my million dollar shot.

The Robin had other ideas and all I have in focus

is where the Robin was.

I only found that I did actually capture

the little twerp…..this morning.

But our guide had a chuckle when I mumbled

that ‘I had a picture of where it was‘.

Now I am confused.

Is my near miss the fact that I missed

getting it in focus…or….that

I didn’t quite miss capturing it at all??
