Can you see his friend?
Photo taken in Chobe National Park in Botswana.
TB Markinson is an American who's recently returned to the US after a seven-year stint in the UK and Ireland. When she isn't writing, she's traveling the world, watching sports on the telly, visiting pubs in New England, or reading. Not necessarily in that order.
Her novels have hit Amazon bestseller lists for lesbian fiction and lesbian romance.
She cohosts the Lesbians Who Write Podcast (lesbianswhowrite.com) with Clare Lydon. TB also runs I Heart Lesfic (iheartlesfic.com), a place for authors and fans of lesfic to come together to celebrate lesbian fiction.
But I can’t see dear TBM, 🙂 Lovely photograph. Thank you, love, nia
He’s tiny so I can understand. there’s a bird on his neck.
His friend? Ah, the giraffe! 🙂
The bird and giraffe seem like best buds.
Fruitful cooperation 🙂
Not often that you get to take a shot of a two-tummied giraffe! Well done. Yes, you can just about spot the buddy in this shot but for a moment it looked like you’d done something clever Photoshop!
I’m never clever 😉
I disagree! And, you’re a poet too! Yay. I completely missed the bird btw (doh!)
I see him, I see him, but I won’t spoil the surprise 🙂
but you have to for people like me who can never figure out the mystery.
I like to look at the patterns on the giraffe. Nice photo.
I kept staring at the patterns on the giraffes and the zebras. So cool!
Yeah, but, I had to look a bit-neat shot!
It is tiny compared to the giraffe.
What are they doing? Lol
The little bird eats the ticks and such off the giraffe.
On his neck.
He’s sticking his neck out for ya!!
Ha! Yes, a little feathered friend!
I can see his friend the ox pecker! Keeps him clean of ticks! 🙂
You got it!
Awww…that’s so cute! Both benefit from the friendship. Great shot!
Yes, I can see it!!! Nice how they do help each other…Sometimes we humans should look to nature and learn something…
I love how matter-of-fact the giraffes are in their day to day life and how they just stroll without the slightest worry in the world. Africa is beautiful and you’ve done justice in capturing a part of her!
Africa is an amazing place…I can’t wait to go back and explore more of it. All of the animals are so majestic and I didn’t want to leave. Can’t believe it’s been two years since I was there.
I know. Africa does that to you doesn’t she? You’ll be back soon enough. Just think of all the splendour and magic that awaits you on your return there. Very exciting!
I feel like Africa hypnotized me and is waiting for me to come back–but not to break the spell, but to enhance it.
Amen to that!
