corridor

a long passage in a building from which
doors lead into rooms.
****

An external internal corridor at

Mt Sheba Resort,

South Africa.

Melbourne’s

Royal Arcade

could be considered a corridor

It’s certainly an internal passage of sorts

with doors leading to rooms

which we called shops.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Speed

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

speed

the rate at which someone or something moves
or operates or is able to move or operate
~~~~~


While I would prefer to be in a vehicle

when trying to outrun

an African elephant

which can move at a speed

of 40 kilometres per hour…

 

 

…it would need to be a speedy vehicle

to outrun a cheetah

which can attain speeds

of 80–130 kilometres an hour.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Typical

typical

having the distinctive qualities of a particular
type of person or thing.

African elephants have larger ears

than their Asian  cousin. 

They are, in fact, simply larger.

 

 

Age doesn’t matter all Labradors love

to eat, sleep and play.

Cee-BW-Challenge-Smaller-Bread-Box-or-Bin

This week I have chosen birds which are all,

according to Google, smaller than a breadbox

which are usually about 16 inches wide

by 8 to 9 inches high and deep ,

or 40cm x 20cm x 20cm.


I would have thought the

Northern White Crowned Shrike

was considerably smaller than its

Crimson Breasted cousin.

However, at 19-23 cm long and

tipping the scales between

42 to 58 grams it more than

holds its place with its cousin.

The Crimson Breasted Shrike

is a smaller bird than I remembered it to be.

Measuring 23cm in length and

weighing 40-57 grams it is roughly

the same size as the

Northern White Crowned Shrike.

Bread box: 40cm x 20cm x 20cm

 

The Kalahari Scrub Robin

measures only 16 cm in length and

weighs between 17 and 23g 

Bread box: 40cm x 20cm x 20cm

At 14 cm, or 5.5in, long and weighing

only 8–13 grams (0.28–0.46 oz),

the Superb Fairy Wren

Bread box: 40cm x 20cm x 20cm

As there is no challenge this week

I decided to post a second reflection post,

this week it is

Africa Bird Reflections.

Sighted in Kruger National Park…

…no idea of bird’s identity.

 

Ninety-nine percent certain

that above and below

images are…

…of Egyptian Geese in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Unexpected-Focus

~~~~~

 

~~~~~

During our first visit to Africa

I had my camera set on AUTO focus…

…which resulted in more than

one or two with an

unexpected focus.

 

I certainly did not want an image

of these branches when there

was a shy impala species

on the rock mound.

Similarly I was trying to capture

on-coming vehicles and

not the window frame.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Hilarious

~~~~~~~

hilarious

extremely amusing.

~~~~~

Whatever it was these two Hornbills…

…were talking about, they thought it was hilarious;

alternating between this pose and a pose

of wings raised a little more than they are now;

heads down and bobbing up and down

just as though they had heard the funniest joke.
