This image accurately captures how I am feeling right now!
Have a great week everyone!
I always take a camera with me when I go out for walks with my dog (or on the rare occasion when I go for a walk on my own). I haven’t taken too many images in recent months, and as such hadn’t downloaded the card in quite some time. While out on Thursday, I saw a beautiful barred owl near my house, and while reviewing those pictures, I found a few others I had forgotten that I had taken.
This is a bit of a random assortment of images taken since July, while out and about on walks.
I was away for the weekend and after arriving back home late yesterday afternoon, I completely forgot to work on my Sunday post. In a stroke of luck though, the images I had prepared earlier last week happen to be monochrome, so they work perfectly for today too.
I’m feeling pretty tired today so I will keep this one brief… I don’t think anyone needs an explanation of these images anyways 🙂
Wishing everyone a fantastic week!
We saw this leopard and her cub on an afternoon game drive from Chitwa Chitwa. As is sometimes the case while out and about, a sighting is occupied, and vehicles need to take turns to give people an opportunity for viewing. Our turn was late in the afternoon, nearing dark, and it was a very challenging area to get into, surrounded by fallen trees and a gulley.
When we arrive, it was just the mother leopard, relaxing on the ground, paws over the edge of the bank. Our guide knew her cub would be nearby, even though none of the other vehicles had seen it. Sure enough, we waited quietly, watching this beautiful, lounging leopard, and out popped the cub from a deep within the bushes. It spent only a few minutes with Mom, when the sound of an approaching vehicle spooked it, and it headed back to its hiding place.
So if you are out on safari and are stuck in a bit of a queue for a sighting, don’t despair, it could turn out much better than you expected 🙂
Have a great week!
Sunday posts this month were supposed to be all about elephants, but this lovely visitor changed my plans for the week. I can’t even explain how nice it felt to have the opportunity to get out and take a few photos, and having both weather and wildlife corporate in the process was a bonus 🙂
I’ve seen a couple of different bucks in the neighbourhood on occasion, but have lately been seeing lots of evidence of them around the yard; they’ve been rubbing their antlers on many of the willow trees around, scoring the bark off and knocking down smaller branches and limbs.
This guy was really unconcerned about me being outside with him, but I kept my distance to not put any pressure on him and cause him to leave the cozy spot he found in the sun to relax.
He’s still in the yard as I type this, and has actually been joined by another, much smaller deer. The little ones are sometimes much easier spooked, so I am going to leave this with just the images I have so far, and let all the deer graze without interruption.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.
I don’t think I have a ton of overlap between blog followers and Instagram followers, so today I decided to share some monochrome elephant images that have been seen before on Instagram over the years, but not here.

I hope you enjoy, have a great day!
