Ingwelala 2017

Annamaria in Africa

The African wind blowing through my hair.

The Avian Chorus that sings all the day, joined by other musicians to perform the night music.

And this:

    1. Michael, whenI learned how close we are coming to meeting up here, I was dismayed to miss you. But that just means I will have to come back. :))

  5. Looks absolutely enchanting, Annamaria. An amazing selection of beasties and birdies. I particularly like the lizard with the blue tail!

    1. Yes, Zoe! I have never seen a critter with such a dramatic appendage. More to come in an addendum next week!

  7. These are beautiful and fantastic. It's a reminder that the earth continues to revolve around the sun and that animal life goes on -- while insanity continues over here.

    Who took all of the photos (except the few with a credit)? Did you? And if so, how did you get so close to the rhinos and elephants, etc.?

    I could look at these photos all day.

    1. Thanks, Kathy. So glad you like the pix. I took all of them except the ones I had to get from Allen, who has a much better camera than mine. He was taking those night shots while I have holding the spotlight. BTW, I used a zoom lens, but you can get pretty close to the animals in the Land Rover. They don't think of the vehicle as a can of food. Thank goodness. :)

  8. Two friends of mine went to South Africa and went touring with a guide. He told them not to put their arms outside the window.
    Well, the inevitable happened. One person asked her spouse to move some leaves out of the way so she could shoot a photo of a leopard with her cut. He moved the leaves out of the way. She got her photo.
    The guide got upset, as the leopard stared at the person moving his arm outside the car, read to spring to protect her cub.
    That's why I wondered how close you got.
    I'd so much rather deal with rhinos, elephants and giraffes over there than the "zoo" in the White House and Congress.
