During my travels it has been heartwarming to see several different rhinos cows with their calves. I did have one sighting that turned out to be quite a missed opportunity though. The Mom was busy having a drink at a watering hole, and the baby began to whine, wanting access to milk. Mom wasn’t interested at that time, and the whining from the baby got louder and more insistent. This went on for a good couple of minutes, and I didn’t even think to switch into video, and kept capturing still images instead. The only time I have heard rhinos before is on nature programs, so it was definitely a wonderful moment in the bush for me.
Here are some images from the past week of my travels, staying at two properties; Lions Sands River and Tinga Lodges. I have had a wonderful time being back in the bush again! It’s tea time shortly and then off to see what the afternoon has in store, so I will keep this brief.
I’m currently traveling so posts will be brief, but I wanted to share an image from my travels so far. I did a day trip on the Panorama Route Sunday, and enjoyed seeing amazing landscapes throughout the day.
The day started out a little bit hazy, but cleared throughout the day and in the end, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for exploring.
April was topic free, as I was trying to work through my image backlog, and just post whatever I felt like at the moment. And, I am happy to report that I met my goal of getting all of my image backlog edited before heading off on my next adventure. I finished with less than 12 hours to go, so it was cutting it close, but I am happy to have a clean slate to return to when I get home.
What’s new this month
The snow has finally melted, the temperatures have started to warm up, and I even saw (but didn’t photograph) my first hummingbird of the year a couple of days ago. I am looking forward to spending some time outside capturing the hummingbirds when I return home from holiday.

What’s coming up next?
I’ll be traveling in South Africa in May, so my regular posts may be a bit sporadic at best.
For those that have been printing out my calendar pages each month, below are the links for May and June:
Just a quick post today as I am running a little short on time at the moment!
I loved watching these elephants greet each other as they all congregated around a dam. Different family groups joined up, took their time with greetings, getting refreshing drinks, and eventually, heading off in their separate ways.
It’s always a joy for me to spend time amongst elephants.
Here we are at Monday again. I felt like editing some elephant images recently, so that is what I have decided to share today. Elephants, with their amazingly textured skin, look fantastic in monochrome images (at least I think so!)
I hope you enjoy my selections. Have a great week!
