The waterbuck image caught my eye today while I was editing, and I thought a selection of antelope would be a good feature for the day.
Sometimes on safari, the vehicle is stopped to watch a small group of elephants, and quite suddenly, you find yourself in the middle of a rather large herd, with elephants to all sides of the vehicle as they make their way through the bush. I feel incredibly blessed as this has happened to me numerous times while out on game drives. For some people, the situation can feel a bit intimidating, but I always trust that my guide is reading the situation correctly, and has an exit strategy prepared in case things get dicey.
Thankfully, we’ve never had to use one of those, and instead can enjoy elephants as far as the eye can see.
I hope you enjoy my selections for today, and wishing you a wonderful week ahead.
While staying at Lion Sands River Lodge, we set out on our afternoon game drive and came across a small bachelor group of elephants. These four broke off into pairs, play fighting as the day grew dim, while a couple of other bulls grazed nearby. It’s so cool watching the interaction of these animals.
Happy Monday everyone!
My focus for the month is on elephant images, and I decided to start off with some of the adorable babies that I saw on my last safari.
I’ve had the great fortune to spend time amongst the shy ones, the boisterous ones, the playful ones and the ones too focused on food to even give the vehicle a passing glance. I adore them all. I hope that the individual character of each animal shines through these images below.
Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead!
October was a freestyle month, and really was a mixed bag of Sunday posts. A couple of posts that focused on leopards (which happen to be my favourite cats), some photo art using owl images and to round it off some examples of different weaver nests.
We are deep into autumn now, with days growing short and the temperature getting colder and colder. I’ve again failed on my mission of getting out and capturing any images locally, which again feels like a massive missed opportunity. So really, not a lot new to share.
Head on over to my gallery page for more of my favourite images.
For November I am going to focus my Sunday posts on my very favourite animal (next to my dog, of course) – elephants. It just popped into my mind, and I like to try to go with my intuition. There might be some photo art combined in there too, we shall see where inspiration takes me.
For those of you that are printing out the half fold or clipboard style calendar pages, here are your links for November and December:
I found this image in my file of edited images; somehow I missed posting it. It’s a few years old now, and seeing it brings back such happy memories of a wonderful morning out in the bush.
I hope you enjoy, and wishing you a wonderful week ahead.
I’ve been having fun this weekend working on some of my photo art images, but decided to share a few images of interesting weaver nests today. They caught my eye, and I decided to just go with it.
On my most recent trip, we saw communal nests of the red-billed buffalo weaver and the typical hanging basket style nest of southern masked weaver (that’s my best guess, as we didn’t actually see anyone in residence).
On previous trips I saw several other great examples.
