This week’s letter for Frizztext’s A-Z archive photo challenge is O. The Okavango Delta, located in Botswana, is the world’s biggest inland delta. It is created each year by seasonal flooding. During the summer months, January-February, the Okavango River spills onto the delta and creates swamp conditions. During March-June, the water spreads out across the delta. Much of the water will disappear due to evaporation and the whole process starts again the following year.
In June of 2010, I visited the Okavango Delta. Here is a photo from the ground.
And here is a photo I took from an airplane as we flew over the delta.

Wonderful! Interesting information. Tank you for sharing it.
Thanks. I’m glad you liked it.

we once watched a heart breaking movie from elephants moving through the Okavango delta – humans’ sorrows seem to be small compared with the yearly struggle of animals there…
I have watched many animal shows that have left me in tears. And after visiting the area, I understand their struggles even more. It is so sad that such a beautiful place can cause so much pain and suffering to the wonderful creatures who inhabit this area.
Thanks for sharing the video! It brought back so many memories. We saw some lions there, but we didn’t see them swim. That would be incredible!
Nice info. I did not know, I have to confess. The photo which You took from airplane is my favorite. I stared at it for a long time studying what I see in it.
I loved seeing the area by driving around and by water, but it wasn’t until we were up in the air looking down did I really understand the vastness of this delta.
What a beautiful reflections you captured… Once I watched on television this Okavango delta… Thank you dear TBM, I loved them all, with my love, nia
It is a wonderful place. Thanks Nia.
O is a great letter!
It has a lot of expression 😮
Wow, great photos! Such interesting information about the delta. Thanks for sharing.
It is a cool place to see. It would be wonderful to watch the entire process…hopefully I’ll have more vacation time in the future 🙂

Hi TBM, great O photo! I was thinking of joining this photo challenge to coincide with our Photo Journal, but I’d have to look for a possible O-contribution. Hmm indeed. 🙂 Hope you had a restful weekend! 🙂
Good luck. I’m pretty excited about your Photo Journal. I love seeing photos from other parts of the world. It is one of the best ways to learn and to plan future trips!
