Africa Elephant Temper Tantrum by lenslady
Africa Elephant Temper Tantrum
Gomoti Reserve, Botswana.  Yes, elephants display many emotions we are familiar with.  We noticed a small herd of elephants drinking at a large pond so we pulled up opposite them.  Immediately the male teenager became upset with our presence.  In the first picture, he's the darkest one.  Just like a small child, he proceeded to throw a temper tantrum.  It was very entertaining to watch.
Elephant Trunk by lenslady
Elephant Trunk
Chobe National Park, Botswana.  An elephants trunk is truly an all purpose tool.
Perspective by lenslady
Chobe National Park, Botswana.  Normally we associate largeness with African Elephants.  Yet, from a distance, with the amazing backdrop of Africa behind him, he is truly small in stature.

Hello |Everyone

I just want to let you know that I've been absent for awhile due to family visiting from Germany.  This weekend I'm leaving on a short vacation to Victoria, British Columbia to visit with an old friend of mine.

I have many more photos to share with everyone that I've been busy working on from my trip to Africa, in addition to what I've been taking since my return.  Whew, a LOT of photos.  lol

But I am eager to introduce you to more of the wonders of Africa.

I used to live in Victoria, situated on the Southern tip of Vancouver Island.  An absolutely beautiful place.  I'll be taking all my camera equipment, including my new telephoto lens, so I'll be taking lots of pictures here as well!!!!  There is so much beauty on the island:  the world famous Butchart Gardens, the rain forest, the magnificent ocean scenery, and plentiful wildlife, both on land and in the waters surrounding the island.  With luck, I'll return with some magnificent Orca pictures.

So, till I return, take care everyone and enjoy the last days of summer.

Thank you so much for being my special followers and friends.  I find that when I take pictures now, I'm always thinking of what I want to share with everyone, and the beauty I want to capture for you of the world I live in.

Thanks Andy!  I love Germany.  As a child, when my dad was in the Canadian military, we lived over there for 4 years just after the wall was put in place.  Many years later, my younger brother joined the airforce and was sent to Germany for 5 years.  He met a wonderful German gal and married her.  As soon as he retired,  he moved his wife and two daughters back to Germany where he lives now permanently.  I try to go over every 2 or 3 years to visit.  They live in a magical little town just outside of Baden.
