On a Lighter Note

Here are some of my favorite photos from safari earlier in the week. For more pictures, visit my Flickr site.

Crested crane with three chicks

A dead Thompson gazelle, having been dragged into a tree by a leopard and left there for a few days. The leopard came back for the rotting carcass on Saturday afternoon, and we missed her by just a few minutes!


I love the African sky. The sun was shining bright on the grass (which is ready for the millions of wildebeest and zebras who'll arrive for the migration in about 2 weeks' time), but the sky was gray with rain coming. You can't see any animals in the grass, but chances are great that some lions were watching us. I spotted a couple of lions on one drive merely by noticing one of their tails flicking above the grass once!


  1. Your photos are gorgeous! I practically feel like I'm on the safari with you. - A. Oster

  2. Thanks, Allison! :) The time away was refreshing. Ask Steve about their crash landing. Seriously! Their plane crashed and they walked away unscathed!
