On Safari

We did a game drive at Mikumi National Park, Tanzania, on June 17. Here are a few of my better pictures of animals.

I came close to being eaten by a crocodile, I suppose. I was sneaking up on a heron to try to take its picture, and as I trod by the verge of a pool there was a big splash. The croc on the bank (which everybody could see but me) decided I was bigger than he could eat or something, and swam off.
