This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images chosen by seven readers from my photo files including wildlife, amazing clouds, and International Hoop dancer Derek Suwaima-Davis.
Mary Lou Chose #7378. Unfortunately, not all widlife shots come out good, especially at 6:45 am. I am not a morning person, except when on safari in South Africa. I tried to capture this Red Hartebeest under dim light conditions in Addo Elephant National Park during my last visit in March, 2014.
John and Pam chose #0758. My wonderful window sunset view from Yarnell, Arizona where I wintered in my RV home for ten years. This shot taken April 22, 2014. Oh how I love my IMAX windows.
Jodee chose #196. Being along the North Rim for sunset isn’t always about the western view of the brilliant sinking sun. Instead, as this July 2012 shot to the south reveals, the play of light and shadow on the temples and far canyon wall provides a marvelous show highlighted by reflected colors on the clouds above.
Diane chose #7772. Elephants are my favorite South African animal and I could sit for hours, days and maybe weeks watching them. In Addo Elephant National Park the often large herds come down to the waterholes/dams to frolic, drink, bath and socialize. Then disappear into the bush and the next herd arrives.
Sherry chose #5196. I never tire of watching Derek Suwaima-Davis hoop dance at the North Rim annual Native American Heritage Days celebrated in August.
Sallie chose #5202. Animals frequently use roads so drivers must be watchful. This kudu at Kruger National Park seems to know the rules of the road too. Notice the oxpecker hitch hiker.
Last week Donna chose #7 and I couldn’t get back online to add her choice so this week she hung on for the same number. Not only did I enjoy marvelous sunsets through the windows of my RV home in Yarnell, Arizona, I also watched the birds, and other wildlife. Javelina would snuff up the fallen bird seed yet I was surprised to see the deer coming in for a snack during December, 2006.
My choices taken on the same day 30 minutes apart during a drive to Kanab from St. George, Utah. Clouds are so amazing.

Do you have a favorite this week?
Believe it or not, I found a spotty 4G signal when I use the laptop on the other side of the 5th-wheel’s living space, the table eight feet away from the desk. Probably steeling this signal from my neighbor’s booster. Did take time and many tries to load smaller photos than usual. But I tried to smile through it. I am an internet junkie. Hope to catch up and catch up with you all soon. Life is good at the North Rim.
