Blue Squared #4

Serengeti Sky Blue

Serengeti Blue

Lioness sunning on a kopjes, a ancient rock that rises above the more recent soils on the Serengeti plains. The kopjes serves as excellent lookouts for lions and other animals.

Join Becki’s July Squares: Blue #12. There are only two rules. The photo must be square and it must somehow be blue (color, theme, concept, etc.)

Dreams of Africa

Out on a Limb

Relaxing, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

“You have to understand – there is a romance to Africa. You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slow lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.”

― Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time

A Weaver Looking For Lunch

Weaver, Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

When we stopped for lunch in the Ngorongoro Crater, the birds came looking for a free lunch. This male Weaver is perched on the edge of the safari roof of our vehicle. It seemed unconcerned I was taking its picture.  (I think it is a Bertram’s Weaver but I am not positive.)

Crowned Cranes

We saw many grey crowned cranes in Kenya and Tanzania. They are native to East Africa and southern Africa. We spotted these in the Ngorongoro Crater.
