Weekly photo challenge: Together

Nyalas share a tender moment together; it was the first photo that popped into my mind when I saw this week’s photo challenge theme.

Pop over to my travel blog Where’s my backpack? to look at my other entry this week. xxx

So many lovely interpretations out there; here are some of my favourites: Wind Against Current, conservingquirky, Jeff Sinon Photography, MJ Springett,  Frizztext, Northern Narratives, Creativity Aroused, Colderweather, A Word in Your Ear & Cardinal Guzman.

      1. Yea, you got it!!! I’m still not sure I have them identified correctly in my notes. After participating in the NH Fish and Game Dragonfly Survey last year, I learned that there are so many that are so close in appearance that the only way to identify them with any certainty is to capture them and examine their “private parts” :-) under a magnifying glass. All I wanted to do was learn how to identify them when I photograph them, yikes!

        The bears were what I hope wasn’t a once in a life time, right place, right time event. Next time though I hope to have a longer lens and have a lot more distance between me and them ;-). It was an experience I’ll never forget, that’s for sure. I bet you weren’t quite as afraid you might be eaten by your subjects though :-)

      2. Yes, those little antelopes didn’t pay me the slightest bit of attention, quite unlike your mother bear who’s got her gaze firmly fixed on you. Gulp.

        Goodness, that seems like a rather invasive way to id your subject. You should really buy them dinner first at the very least. :)

  1. Squeeeee……! so cute!

    Now, what’s a nyala? you mention they’re antelopes of some sort.. with the stripes and the little horns, they look almost mythological. Where do they live?

    1. Oooh yes, they do look like they’re right out of a fairytale :) They’re native to southern Africa, and live in woodland areas. These two cuties are both female with reddish coats. The male of the species is dark brown with huge spiral horns.
