Kruger National Park, South Africa - 14 Nov. 2018
In the morning it is time to put away the night lights.
Oxpeckers breakfast time.
Everyone was bundled up as it was cold.
Kruger termite mound. Vastly different from the termite mounds we saw in Botswana.
The animals blend right in to their surroundings. I’m not going to be in to naming many of these types of animals, I don’t always remember their names and I’d rather not name them than attach the wrong name to them.
Irene bought this camera and lens especially for this trip. She’s a smart girl.
The landscape of Kruger is completely different from Botswana which makes photographing the animals, and getting a clear shot near to impossible.
Such pretty eyelashes you have madam elephant.
What the elephant sees, darned tourists.
What we see, partially hidden elephant. You can see this old man is in retirement. just look at the broken tusk on the far side and the missing tusk on this side.
One of these three needs to work on there modelling skills.
Darn starlings keep getting underfoot.
I didn’t know warthogs came in three sizes, but thanks to these three it is obvious there are large medium and small warthogs. Delusional Bob.
Africa is awesome,everywhere you look there is beauty.
The final act in the cycle of Life and Death in Africa.
The food is wonderful.
Beets are served at most meals. Happy Norman, Happy Linda, Happy Bob. And if beets don’t float your boat, there are plenty of other options as every meal is a buffet.
Irene demonstrating the different ways to keep one’s hat atop one’s head. Bob demonstrating how not to adjust the camera for backlight conditions. At least I got the focus right. Bumbling Bob.
You can’t see me.
Another great meal in South Africa.
