Wordful Wednesday's is for those of us who want to show off pictures AND talk about it - so let's go back to Africa. I have a digital picture frame on my desk, and my clients LOVE watching it. Me too . . .
When we went to the Hluhlewe (Shluh-shloo-ee) park, we got up at the crack of dawn for our safari, since that's when the animals are most active and out and about. You know what? It was worth it.Some of the animals were mildly curious about us. For the most part, they would look at us, we would look back. The amazing thing, is by the end of the safari we would see something move and be all, "Ooh, what's that? Oh, it's just another giraffe." Just another giraffe? Sheesh. It was fun to watch the . . . I think it's an Oxpecker bird, nibbling on the ticks and other creatures on the animals. Talk about a circle of life.
I think the Zebra's (Pronounced Zeb-ruh's) were probably the most fun. Did you know that they are NOT the same stripes on both sides? But this little guy was all about posing. He'd turn his head this way, or his body that way - very cooperative for a novice photographer!
Of course, some animals just didn't want to be seen, and are very good at hiding. Fortunately, our tour guide had taken this shot earlier and was kind enough to share it with me. He kept telling us the lion is right over there, but he wouldn't get out of the Land Rover to show me exactly!! I don't get it . . . we were good tippers!

Tune in for more pictures - it was the adventure of a lifetime!
