This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 7 images chosen by readers out of my photo archives. Of course these are all from my current journey through South Africa as that’s all I have on the replacement computer. By next Friday I’ll be back in Arizona for one full day so you should start seeing photos from other places after that. Then in just a couple more weeks I’ll be back at the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
Jo chose #199 and last week her favorites were the “ellie pics.” She again gets “ellies” this time from Addo Elephant National Park where there’s LOTS of elephants. These two young adults have turned their backs on the three youngsters who are playing in the grasses. They were rolling all over and having a wonderful time.
Yogi chose #998 which features a statue at the Twee Riviern gate into Kgalagadi National Park of two Gemsbok running plus a bonus LBJ sitting on one of their horns. (LBJ = Little Brown Job when birders can’t identify a small brown bird.)
Bibi chose #44, “That’s in how many days I leave for the US, and then some more to you.” She’s working on a plan to visit me at the Grand Canyon this summer and I’m really looking forward to meeting her. Sure hope I don’t scare her with this fierce look. It’s rare to be able to leave your vehicle when visiting Addo Elephant National Park, or any game park for that matter, and when you can it’s very important to beware of lions.
Sherry chose #127. I think she’d have liked this Augrabies flat lizard. These colorful males were all over the rocks and decks at Augrabies Falls National Park and so were the rather dull brown females. I took almost as many photos of them as the falls themselves.
Diane also chose #998 which features two giraffes, one big and one little and kind of hiding. I love when rounding a corner on the road to see animals ambling along as then I can actually see their entire bodies including their feet which are usually hidden in the grass. This was taken at Kruger National Park.
Sallie chose #6 or 66 or 666 because it “has always been my favorite number and I’m not afraid of it in spite of Yogi.” Yogi is always choosing #666. But there’s nothing to be afraid of at Augrabies Falls National Park as long as you stay on the boardwalk trails and decks to view the thundering falls. Well, unless you’re afraid of heights.
My choice this week is the best sighting so far at Pilanesburg Game Reserve where Joan and I are staying until April 6th. We watched this male leopard lounging in the tree for quite a while and then it appeared to be watching something on the ground rather intently before laying back down to take a cat nap.
