Word-of-Day-Elephant

~~~~~

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

Followers will know…

…that I am not short of…

 

…elephant photos.

Swimming elephants.

 

 

Elephants wandering past our accommodation.

Who knows how many passed by during the night.

 

 

Thirsty elephants on

The Okavango Delta.

One or two came really close

on their scavenger hunt.

a written or printed work consisting of pages glued
or sewn together along one side and bound in covers.

When we moved off the farm…
…my library consisted of hard back book.

Then audiobooks began to fill my shelves.


After our African Safaris…

…we created some online books…

…using some of our favourite images.

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.

spicy

exciting or entertaining, especially through being mildly indecent

 

I guess ‘spicy’...

…would be an apt way of describing the decor

of the ladies and gents facilities at an Austrian restaurant.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk192-Eyes

~~~~~~~

 

Today quick trip across

the Indian Ocean to Africa,

for some bird’s eyes..

Where we met several varieties of Hornbill.

All have piercing eyes, but are actually quite friendly

and have some funny ways about them.

Above is the Yellow Billed Hornbill.

The ground hornbill’s main point of interest

is its eyes.

I manage to capture this shot at

a rehabilitation centre.

This is the only photo I have in the wild.

These specimens are not very attractive in my opinion.
