This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 7 images chosen by readers from my photo archives. Our meme number for this week is 2458. Please join in with a post and link below with a #2458 photo from your archives. And check out the other posts linked to the Foto Friday Fun meme.
Yogi used random.org to choose this week’s 2458 number. In my photo index that’s just one of seven images for a panorama of Sky Island seen near the Walhalla overlook during a hike this summer. So you get a twofer. I remember when I used to have to tape together panorama prints and they went on the refrigerator door. Did you ever do that?
Sherry chose #4892 and writes “This is like playing the lottery only less expensive and more fun.” I don’t buy lottery tickets but it sure was a gamble taking photos of this Purple-crested Turaco roosting high above camp. And although I struggle to photograph birds I did get quite a few more birds in Kruger National Park.
Diane chose #2221 which brings us to setting up a telescope for the week long 2014 Grand Canyon Star Party. This annual mid-June event includes about a dozen scopes on the Lodge veranda and volunteer amateur astronomists from Tucson share the night sky with visitors.
Sallie chose #9991, “because probably I am last to choose.” She wasn’t the last to choose but did take the highest number to choose from. And was getting pretty close to the end of this year’s journey in South Africa with an egret fishing along the shores of Mankwe Dam in Pilanesberg Game Reserve.
Jonker chose #7531 a “ Random number cause that’s how I roll.” Sometimes he rolls up the road from where he lives to Addo Elephant National Park where I’m sure he’s seen zebras. But I wonder if he’s seen them from the underground bird hide accessible from the main camp. Sure was a great place to see them up close.
Something a little different than Grand landscapes, my choice for this week of a Dark-eyed Junco checking out some scraps on the lodge veranda. I see these flitting on the ground everywhere but can rarely get a photo.
