Back to the Pond…

I haven’t watched the “goings on” at Pete’s Pond for a while, since the camera broke down for a few weeks last month, and I’ve been busy working and doing homework from (and attending) the three classes I’m taking, so I decided to check in tonight, and was happy to see some wildlife, got some good screen shots of the morning visitors around 7:30 am (Botswana time).  If you’d like to see the screen shots I’ve taken before, check out my posts from last July.

When I opened the website to the pond, I was “greeted” by a giraffe taking some sips from the water.  I hit the “print screen” button, pasted the shot in the Windows “paint” program, then buffed it up with Photoshop:

giraffe 10.12.13

he/she has good balance with those front legs spread that far apart…

he/she then started to walk away, look at that height...

I left the screen to process the two pics, and came back to find the camera had zoomed in and the giraffe was looking almost right at it...

I left the screen again to process the close up, came back and was treated to mixture of species: storks, impalas, zebras, and wildebeests...

I left again to process this shot, came back and they had all left…

That’s about it for now, I’m tired and I need to go feed my cats and fish, so,

HOW YOU DOIN?

ps: since nobody attempted to figure out the challenges from my previous post, no answers will be provided until someone does…

    AMAZING!
    From mores code and huge heavy plates for pictures…….to this. Those brilliant, visionary folks had no clue what they were setting into motion! Too bad they couldn’t peek into the future! Wish I could find where I stashed the link to all these incredible spots!
    Think of you often….hope you’re doing well.
    Thanks for continuing to touch base thru these posts!

    A household that has decided to rent out a spare bedroom should
    take into account exactly what areas the tenant will have access to.
    Amateur geologists will enjoy seeing the Shoreline Butte where the ancient Lake
    Manly crashed against the mountain side. A document was signed on August 25,
    2000, called “Final Proposal,” which is set forth at the end of this post.
    This trough, however, is located below the upper gutter lip meaning that the debris is stuck there.
    It won’t take you long to get to the point
    where you’re making $10,000 to $20,000 checks each and every month only
    working a few hours a week. First of all, stay away from gutters that flip to clean as they warp and
    the hanger freeze. When I pinned them to their actual
    winnings, they admitted that they spent more than $ 10,000 a year buy tickets, and they claimed they always win more than they
    spent on tickets. By instituting the above steps in a
    professional and expedient manner your venture into virtual real
    estate wholesaling will be well on its way to becoming a profitable and
    lasting entrepreneurship. When you buy a $30,000 car and drive
    it off the new car lot, throw out a $100 bill out the window every week
    as you drive. In that event, the City Clerk will remove that item from the Consent Calendar and place
    it for separate consideration.
