All In The Family?

The next day, after a walk in the dunes behind the lodge, we went to another national park.

And there they were . . .

I was hoping to see them.  Waiting to see them.

And right by the road, the family reunion started.

GnuKid?  Meet Mr. Gnu – – –

Dad? Is that you?

And, of course – – –

Ain't they cute?

Fellow GnuKids!

Made me a happy boy… well, that and some of the other critters we saw.  For example – –

Giraffes and Warthogs

and…

Right by the road!

and…

All in all, we saw 22 rhinos that evening...

and more to come…

    the old gnu is kinda wrinkly. i think your skin fits better… and giraffes? they are the shiz…

  8. thegnukid Says:

    kyknoord – well of course they are…i am too. is that a problem here?

    nursemyra – not bad for a simple point-and-shoot camera, huh?

    mitzi – i really was hoping to see some. was very thrilled they were roadside that second day.

    hisqueen – and those weren’t the biggest, widest rhinos we saw. there are some monsters out there.

    stephanie – and happily munching away on dinner. they are cute little buggers, huh?

    lynn – i think they have my eyes.

    daisyfae – giraffes rock! and, yeah, my skin fits better for now. hopefully when i’m as old as that guy in gnu years, i’ll still look good.

    Amazing photos. Aren’t rhinos quite dangerous though?

  10. Dolce Says:

    I’m a gnu, a gnother gnu…I take it you’ve heard the Flanders and Swann classic?

  11. thegnukid Says:

    S. Le – yeppers, they’re dangerous. blind as a bat, though, too. we never got close enough to piss any of them off.

    dolce – whee!!! yes! actually, i think you taught me that lesson way back when this blog was gnew. before then, i gnever gnew about it.
