often made or used for a particular purpose.

These track in Sauage Tree Safari Camp grounds…

…were reminiscent of many tracks I had travelled

on my way to work in New South Wales. 

Once off the road I was faced with criss crossing trails

and only felt better about it when my

travelling companion said

…don’t worry they all lead to the (Wool) Shed.

 

After several hours seemingly following

old wheel ruts through Botwswana’s

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans…

 

…we eventually arrived at our destination,

Lekhubu Island

extreme heat

summertime temperatures that are much hotter
and/or humid than average
 

The day I captured this image of Loch Ard Gorge

the asphalt in the car park was melting

in the 44-degree heat.

Definitely extreme in Southern Victoria.

I was not the only visitor feeling the heat.

All visitors were either in the water or the shade.

This image of Botswana’s

Makgadikgadi Salt Pan

which is part of the Kalahari Desert

would produce both hot and cold extremes

during African Summer months.

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans,

in the North East corner of

Botswana’s, Kalahari Desert.

 

 Once upon a time, this saltpan

was a vast inland lake.

Now it is a vast bed of salt

and where animals find water

is beyond my knowledge.

The Horned Dungbeetle can pull up to 1141 times

its own body weight which is the equivalent of

an average man lifting two fully-laden

18-wheeler trucks.

 

Baby Elephant is the one that gets me smiling.

It was definitely telling us where to go

with its newfound trunk control.

 

Our resident New Holland Honeyeater mum (I think) was

giving me a right telling off when I captured this image.

Since then, and more likely,

I think she may have been talking

to wayward offspring.

This little one is our adored granddaughter.

She only has around nine weeks before

she will have to share the limelight with a sibling.

Another 8 weeks thereafter she will

have a cousin…all being well in both camps.
