This week, Sue’s Word a Week Challenge is Pose, and she’s posted some wonderful pics from her trip to Africa.
Here are a few favourite subjects that have unwittingly posed for my camera.
The Lion with its huge mane and majestic appearance, has to be the indisputable King of Beasts.
The gorgeous Cheetah can run faster than any other land animal, and has the ability to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just three seconds. This one was just relaxing at the side of the road as we stopped to admire her.
The exotic Toucan is famous for its brightly coloured bill. It always makes me smile to see nature’s proudest and most impressive schnoz which is about 30- 40% of its total body area. Aren’t you glad that your nose isn’t that huge? 🙂
This beautiful Eagle Owl was a most inscrutable poser ever. Couldn’t get him to smile for the camera at all.
The birds are flocking down to spend the winter in Florida. Here you see the Wood Stork posing with his good friend Snowy.
The Great Egret is always stalking around in my back yard.
I really think that animals and birds are such great subjects to photograph, because even if they don’t smile and haven’t done their hair and makeup, they always look perfect.
