1 Week Later

And its Owly Monday again.  Except not too many Owls today.  I have decided to share some of our pictures from our "delayed" Honeymoon  that we couldn't take right after the wedding because of work.  S here are just a small drop for you.  Most of these are ones that I've taken with my little Kodack Easyshare Z650 10x zoom (except where noted).  So grab your Monday mug of coffee 
and take a tour.

This was one of the absolute highlights for me.  We were all sitting down to dinner, conversing, enjoying the meal, when all of the sudden this guy flew over our heads!
Its an African Barn Owl!! Holy (enter your favorite expletive here)!
We didn't see him her the following night.
(Sam took this pic w/ his Nikon)

Tanzania Roadblock.
This was our first "game drive" and in Tarangire National Park. 
A very large heard of Wildebeest.

On our way back to camp we got an up close and personal view of a small heard of Elephants.

An early morning game drive allowed us to see these guys!
Bat-eared Foxes are primarily nocturnal and sleep in their underground dens through most of the day.

We had a wonderful breakfast with this as our view.
Beautiful scenery in Tarangire.

My birthday was spent with the Masai and traveling to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.
Dancing with the Masai.

Everyone at the lodge (including another OAT group that was at the end of their trip, their 3 guides, our 3 guides and all the staff ) came out dancing and singing to celebrate my birthday.  It was just about the best birthday EVER!  And we got cake!

On a very looooooooooong dusty, bumpy drive to Serengeti National Park we were lucky to catch this guy eating. 
A Greater Kestrel! Sam took this shot w/ his camera.

And a little video for you.  A Leopard that our little group had all to itself (no other tourists to fight for viewing positions).  After watching it silently watch a Reedbok, he finally decided to come down the tree to start his evening prowl.  And just for the record, my awesome Nikon binoculars reveled that he was indeed a he.

More pix to come.  And if you are interested in experiencing this for yourself, check out
