Weekly Photo Challenge:Transition (of a Roller)

I was thinking of what to share for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge:Transition. I still had the photos open from our trip to Chobe in Botswana used in last week’s challenge and remembered a series of shots of a Lilac -breasted Roller landing on a branch.

This amazing bird is so colourful. It looks like a young child was given a coloring picture of a bird and used the entire box of crayons to colour it in. They live all over Eastern and Southern Africa though we have yet to see them in Mwanza.

The transition from air to land!



World Elephant Day

Today is World Elephant Day. So in honour I have decided to post pictures of these fabulous beasts from our recent safari in Chobe National Park in Botswana. Elephants are plentiful here and we were able to get a close up view of the herds.
