A fork-tail flycatcher - same bird that was doing the chasing in 'Airfight' a few days ago - has an afternoon dip. I'm guessing that it's cooling off, rather than catching insects or fish - but I'm not sure on this!
A wild horse being broken in by an experienced villager. An alternative picture, here on Picasa, had just a bit too much blur to be used, but showed the danger more clearly.
The main road, looking north towards Dadanawa, is very dry and sandy at the moment. It is a difficult and slow journey out of Aishalton. Some sections are being improved, and there is finding for further improvements, but it is a slow process made more difficult by sudden, heavy, unpredictable rainfalls.
The stylish (if not the fastest) way to travel!
Tough choice between two. The alternative version is here. I think that with the alternative, as I was shotting a bit into the sun, the shadows are too deep to give good colour balance, so whilst I like the concept and the framing, it doesn't quite make it!
Choice of two today! Sarah preferred the black bee, here on Picasa, but I think I can do a better job of the bee another day, it leaves me wanting to see its face, but the ant is probably as good as it's going to get! Unless I find a big ant doing the same thing!!! This one was really quite small...
Yesterday I tried to take this picture, and got very wet! Today I had more luck - the dark clouds passed over without me getting a soaking! However, what I was really hoping for, was a rainbow... Maybe another day!
Choice between two today. I think this one just wins due to the tiny face peering out from beneath the rain cover - might not be noticable on the small version (or on the blogger distorted version!). The runner up is in the Picasa album here.
The old cattle trail through Guyana's rainforest is now widened so that it can take trucks and busses. But it is still a rough, muddy trail which can be difficult to follow in bad weather.
