This week’s Foto Friday Fun is dedicated to my dear South African friend Joan. All these photos wouldn’t have been possible without her friendship and knowledge. Just before Christmas she was beaten and robbed while at the Eco-Center she’s been building up. I posted about this and asked for donations to replace the stolen laptop and other things. I watched through tears of joy as donations came in. Thank you for helping. I’ll transfer the funds after the weekend so you’ll still have time if you’d like to help.
Bibi chose #207 the time she made last week’s comment. The time is NOW to stop poaching and save rhinos like this pair I saw in Pilanesberg Game Reserve. You can help by donating to Travelers Building Change and be entered to WIN several awesome trips like to the Galapagos or an African safari amongst many other gifts. Please help SAVE #JustOneRhino.
Sherry chose #3795 and being a bird watcher should like this Yellow-billed stork at Kruger National Park. Joan and I watched for many minutes as it swept that long bill back and forth while kicking up possible food with its feet.
Sallie chose #4500, “Because it’s halfway or so in the numbers you gave us and because I have a bad cold I am feeling like I’m only halfway here. Or halfway human.” I hope she’s feeling better this week. There was nothing halfway about this magnificent Kruger specimen. This shot taken after watching him mate three times, the last about 10 feet off the fender. Joan told me they often mate in the road frequently over several days.
Shane chose #8100, my favorite animal. In Addo Elephant National Park Joan and I would sit for hours and watch one herd after another come to the waterhole. Their social structure is like no other showing respect, comradery and compassion.
Yogi chose #8416, “Because the first two numbers and second add up to a 100.” That is way over my head just like birds usually are. But while driving on the side of a mountain in Mountain Zebra National Park this hawk soared below.
My choice is from Augrabies Falls when Joan and I had to wade back to camp after a rainy hike. Thank goodness for warm temperatures, we were soaked. Yet we laughed all the way home.
