Misery Creek Bridge.

 A Few years ago a falling tree bought more misery

to what remained of Misery Creek Bridge.

 

 

Sydney’s…

…Harbour Bridge.

 

 

In Botswana we came across

new bridge sporting this sign…

 

We walked slowly across this bridge only stopping

to admire the old bridge just visible on the left.

Chapel Bridge, Lucerne.

Our Safari Guide……assured us he was only planning

tomorrow’s itinerary.

The Beefeater Guide had plenty of stories to tell

about The Tower of London

 

Our guide (foreground) at the Colosseum

was aware of its history and many

previously unheard of facts.

Just finished breakfast one morning

in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. 

A Kudu appears running top speed

along the water’s edge about 50 metres away. 

A few seconds alter an African Wild Dog

comes loping along. 

We watched them out of sight in stunned silence,

then noticed two more Wild Dogs enter

through an opening in the trees.


Our guide told us that the Johnny Come Latelys

were probably supposed to take up the chase.

Due to their late arrival they had

no sight or scent of their mate.

The pair eventually found their way back

to our camp, some 200 metres from where

we first sighted them, and spent precious time

trying to pick up the scent of the third, or first, dog.

the inability of the pair, dogs 2 and 3,

to collaborate properly, in all likelihood

cost them a feed that day.

LIft off on our flight over

the Okavango Delta.

Shadows on a boabab tree

in Botswana.

 

Made in Victoria.

 

Shadows that are no more.

 

A Kalahari Scrub Robin with an early morning shadow

much larger than the bird.

 

Fog tends to add a grey tone a landscape…

…whether it is a Black and White…

…or colour image.

While the African wildlife…

…soon lost its novelty value…

…never, was an animal sighting less than awesome.

 

 

Although uncommon visitors to our car,

the Yellow Billed Hornbill was

a common sight during our African Safaris.
