What a difference a day makes. Only 500 photos to look at and decide which ones to include. I think I may have gotten a little carried away with photos yesterday, but it was such an awesome day I just couldn’t help myself.
Our guide, K.T., talking about some of the wildlife we asked about.
Monkey in tree to right, and we all try to get a photo. We are still new at this African wildlife thing. Patience comes with time. He’s towards the left side on the horizontal limb.
Getting a little better at this monkey photo thing.
Even better. It is eating part of a bird a larger monkey higher up in the tree hidden by leaves has caught. The big monkey drops parts of the bird to smaller monkeys lower down in the tree.
Everyone has a different idea of what beauty is. Botswana is a beautiful country in whatever form it takes.
Baby ostrich tracks.
There coloration blends right in with the grass.
Two different hatchings of little ones. Photographing them isn’t all that easy. FYI, the two adults are a male and female. The female is a “dominate” female and she will raise any chicks she can take away from their mother. This way the strongest mother ensures the survival of the strongest chicks. Natural selection at work.
No comment necessary.
They don’t just eat leaves up in the trees. Little tree also have good tasting leaves.
When she’s ready, he’s ready.
The look of a guy in love, giraffe style.
Babies are so cute, no matter what the species.
Time to say goodbye.
African civet, at least I think that’s what K.T. said it was.
What happens when your camera focuses on the tall grass in the foreground.
Once again Linda comes through.
There is also a lot of this to find those creatures.
But the reward is worth it. Cheetahs.
Time for a break.
We weren’t the only ones who were having a snack.
It’s easy to guess who has the right of way.
Little ones protected by the big ones.
Mother and three baby warthogs 10 feet of the veranda as I sat writing yesterdays post.
This tree is less than ten feet from our veranda. The marks I am pointing to are where elephants have sharpened their tusks, tearing off the bark.
Bar and lounge area at the camp.
An evening on the water.
Cattle have the right of way.
Sitting on the beach enjoying life.
The end of another awesome day in Botswana.
