This week’s Foto Friday Fun features 6 images chosen by readers from my photo archives. Our meme number for this week is 8888. Please join in by digging into your archives and sharing a story. And check out the other posts linked to the Foto Friday Fun meme.
Diane chose #8881, also from the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, this Blackbacked Jackal looked quite comfortable and in no hurry to get out of the road.
Sherry chose #7430, “Since it is 7:43 here on the east coast.” Amazingly enough this shot of a Fiscal Shrike was taken in Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa at 7:30 am. Talk about coincidence.
Sallie chose #74 because “I celebrated that birthday in the Yukon Territory this year. Bill said he would take me to an exotic foreign country to celebrate.” How about some Roman ruins in Frankfurt Germany for exotic and foreign. I saw this in 2010 during a long layover on my way to South Africa in 2010.
My choice this week is the only successful still shot I have ever captured of lightning, and I took it through the RV window. I used video for lightning in the past but the stills were very small. Don’t have a lightning trigger or finger. Did take about 20 shots with no lightning and this was the second in a double flash. I’ve heard to watch for lightning on the edges of storms. I was mostly lucky.
