2016-10-09: Holiday Photos

Every month the photo club I belong to has a photo topic of the month, as well as being able to submit a further 5 photos for review and discussion.  Since all I have captured since I returned home are a few grainy images of one of the local deer (and lots of my dog) I thought I would share them here as well.  I am hoping to get back into the swing of things with my “What I’ve seen this week” Sunday post very soon.

Until then, I hope you enjoy some images of Uganda and Kenya.

This image stirs up so much for me.  I can almost smell the fever trees and the acacia and the scent of the elephants, I can almost hear the rumbles, the crunch of branches and chewing of leaves, I can almost feel the warm of the sunlight.  Working on these images takes me right back and gives me a mini mental holiday 🙂
Three young male lions had taken down a wildebeest in the night, and shortly before I shot this, all three were still picking away at the carcass.  There were a half dozen jackals hanging around, trying to figure out how to safely get close enough to grab a morsel or two.  This one only took another step before turning away.
Witnessing a river crossing involves a lot of waiting, and then a lot of chaos in a short period of time.  I’m looking forward to sharing more about this experience!
Just like human babies, the mountain gorilla infants that I saw were incredibly curious, and explored their world by touching everything.
A lappet faced vulture lays claim to a wildebeest carcass that looks to be little more than some fur and bones.
