One of these Safari days when you drive for hours and don't see anything. Then suddenly a leopard in the middle of the road. Taken in Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve (Okavango Delta).

"You may not know where lives road will lead you, but keep moving, God is walking with you.." (Kwai river, Botswana)

It's so curious the eye of an elephant, so small in relation to the size of the animal, and so expressive at the same time. During the trip It happened to me to watch several times "demonstration" attacks, which becomes real if the recipient do not withdraw quickly. On these occasions I noticed an aggressive expression in the eyes that you would not expect from a giant for the rest quiet and peaceful as this pachyderm. I added a picture of a demonstration attack below.

 

Mi ha incuriosito l'occhio dalle lunghe ciglia dell'elefante, così piccolo in rapporto alla sua mole, eppure, a guardarlo da vicino, così espressivo. Nel corso del viaggio mi è capitato di assistere più volte ad attacchi "dimostrativi", che diventano veri se il destinatario, in questo caso noi, non si allontana rapidamente. In queste occasioni ho notato nell'occhio dell'animale l'espressione di una aggressività che non ci si aspetterebbe da un gigante per il resto tranquillo e pacifico come questo pachiderma. Ho aggiunto la foto di un attacco dimostrativo.

I have not seen them in this pose before .

Gemsbok likes walking around at last light before settling down for the night.

These old giants thrive in dryer areas and make interesting subjects for the landscaper.

Panthera leo

(Okavango - Botswana)

Dopo quasi un anno ritorno in Flickr, ma solo perché ho voluto rinnovare l'abbonamento.

Lascio un saluto a tutti coloro che passeranno di qui insieme all'informazione che per vari motivi non ho tempo per proporre foto con regolaritá.

Vi lascio una serie riguardante il nostro viaggio dell'estate 2012 in Botswana.

Okavango Delta, Botswana at sunset. The Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world and is teeming with wildlife. The trees in the distance mark the edge of the Moremi Game Reserve, where me, my wife and our guide spent three nights camping alone in the bush with no neighbors except for elephants, hippos, zebras, giraffes, lions, leopards, and countless bird species. It was an amazing wilderness experience!

 

To get to our campsite at Chief Island, our guide used a pole to push us along in a traditional mokoro canoe, which is shown in the foreground. Mokoros are carved locally out of a single piece of wood. If you ever have a chance to take a mokoro trip in the Okavango Delta, especially an overnight trip in the bush, then by all means do it! It's a wonderful experience in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

I saw very many elephants while away ....but this was certainly the tiniest one I saw. Sorry to say that he was lying down before we arrived ,but he got up immediately & went quickly to his mother.

This was taken in Chobe National Park,Botswana.

The marbled reed frog or painted reed frog (Hyperolius marmoratus) is a species of frogs in the Hyperoliidae family found in Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe, and Botswana, Lesotho, and Tanzania. It occurs in a wide range of natural habitats, including forests, savannas, shrublands, grasslands, rivers, swamps, freshwater lakes, and intermittent freshwater lakes. It coexists well with humans, and is also found in pastureland, rural gardens, and urban areas. Its range appears to be expanding to the winter rainfall area of the Western Cape.

Pearl spotted owlet's are one of Southern Africa's smallest owls. They are 'earless' owls. They have mock eyes at the back of their heads. This will confuse the predator as to which way the owl is facing.

This was taken just after sunset in the Okovango delta (Botswana) with just enough colour left in the sky.
