Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure


Well, we are just returned from 3 weeks in Europe but I wouldn’t classify that trip as an adventure.  It was very enjoyable but fairly quiet and even.  As a contrast, I would classify our trips to camp with the Brown Bears in Alaska or our African trips as adventures – not only because of wildness of the areas but also because you are always in the presence of animals with minds of their own.  I don’t mean that these activities are hazardous – but they are adventurous and interesting because you are experiencing things so far from our normal human interactions and lifestyles.  I picked this photo (pretty much at random from my desktop) to illustrate a moment that made this an adventure – a chance to witness a wild lioness “schooling” her young ones in their behavior.

Adventurous moment - at least for the cub....

    • Thanks Nora – spent quite a bit of time with them watching the interactions but didn’t want to totally focus on the camera. I’m glad I still got some of these shots of interesting moments.

    • Hi Colline – I think at various times we got within about 25 yards or so to the pride. It was nice of them to “let us in”
