This South African elephant was in a playful mood at the Manyeleti Game Reserve in the Limpopo region. They look so majestic. And all the rangers considered the charge of an elephant extremely dangerous.

But for quite sometime on a lazy afternoon this one kept playing with mud and water. And I so enjoyed clicking it.
And tomorrow I should be back from Nepal and to live blogging. In the meanwhile here is another picture of the same elephant.
I lost a piece of heart in these bushes, if you ever find it do return it to me. The South African bush, you never know what delights it has in store for you!
The Beautiful South African Bush
It is all the more fascinating for what it hides rather than what it reveals, or rather when it reveals! I hope the human race somehow finds the sanity to protect it.
My group was animatedly talking to each-other when we heard a strange voice. It was the Vervet Monkeys in the tree nearby. They don’t like being ignored.

The lodge staff also told us that they would come to steal the breakfast! So this is my scheduled lazy Sunday photo. I am right now trekking in Nepal.
The light was way too low but the sight was divine. When the dusk fell at the Manyeleti Game Reserve, our tracker was shining his torch around the bush and soon enough it caught the eye of an animal. And what an animal it was! Oh the thrill to see an African lion to walk so close to us and knowing that we were in safe hands to enjoy the experience.

I consider this just a record keeping shot, after all the light was way too low to do anything decent with the kind of skills I have. But what a sight it was and I am glad that I have a record of it.
