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.
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.
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!
While this leopard sighting was almost two years ago, it feels both like a lifetime ago, and also like it was yesterday. I find it interesting how the same experience can occupy those different spaces, seemingly at the same time.
This was the second to last day of my last safari, and the photos don’t need too much commentary. Our ranger took us to a leopard and her two cubs that were deep in a ravine, and while we perched, parked on the side of a rather steep slope, the cubs went about their day, playing, chasing, exploring and occasionally, snuggling up with their Mom.
I hope you enjoy my selections for today. Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead.
A bit of leopard love on this monochrome Monday. I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
It’s quite nice not having a theme this month, as I can select whatever images catch my attention. Today, it is a selection of images shot at or near sunset.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.
