I was in the bush near Botswana's border this weekend. There has been no rain for a month, and the bush is very dry. The animals are particularly nervous, but I did get a few poor pictures.

Suicidal chameleon
Sitting in the open on a fence in Africa is the quickest way to end it all for you. Some underlying issues maybe?



"Goodbye cruel world!!!! Come fetch me O jackal Buzzard!!!"

Tortoise


"I am a stone....... I am a stone....... I am a stone......


"I've been spotted!!!!"


"I am as the wind!!!!! You'll never take me alive!!!!!!!! "

The only game that stood still long enough for a picture was this giraffe

The bush was way too dry.

We found a large Mamba, but it didn't feel like posing for a picture

Well better luck next time then!:)

Heh, If I were that lucky living in S. Africa, I think I wouldn't want to do anything else but go to the bush everyday.

I don't want to do anything else either :p :p

But walking around in the bush is dangerous if you are inexperienced. For example, if that mamba had bitten someone it would've been fatal. We were two hours away from the nearest shop, and around 100 miles of really bad dirt road from the nearest doctor.
