Some of animal and bird sightings
Warthog…Botswana Rhino Sanctuary

The first sighting of many that day.

So much pettier than its
African Pearl Spotted Owl.

Finally, the totally unexpected animal sighted in Africa.
Although after passing through a few Kalahari villages
we did get used to seeing donkeys.
African threes this week.
A road block…and two sets of threes
Zebras really know how to posse for tourists.
Three mongoose, or should that be mongeese?
Three Ground Hornbills.
Three gentle giants.
Couldn’t think of colours which contrast more

Spiderweb in Canola Crop image…
particularly the BW version.
Too busy? Or about right?
Another I like.
There must be another name for
Red Hot Poker,
but it’s too hot to search.
This looks so refreshing.
Apologies for the delay with my post,
I was also procrastinating about how to approach this challenge
and eventually decided to post some images
from our two safaris in Africa, as I have
posted some of the BW shots on Gurushots
during the week for some fun.
a bit like my Grade 2 teacher used to look.
Like her they look stern but are fun to have around.
The African Starling…a far prettier bird than our variety.
Thirsty elephant in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
Also still at a Delta camp this
Lilac Breasted Roller posed for us.
Back in South Africa two 6-8 week old lion cubs came
to within twenty-feet of our vehicle.
It was the quietest, but noisiest (cameras)
twenty minutes of our trip.
…no doubt relieved that her tail was no longer
the centre of their attention.
At the moment we are in the final stages
of organising another safari for 2020.
until I visited the Melbourne Zoo after…
