Hey Aat,

Awesome stories again, the Sable, Roan and Tsessebe along with those cheetah and leopard cubs were awesome. The Giraffes were great and the elephants wow. Not to mention the lions. I hope I have a few good sightings like that when I get there. Trying to read your stories and having the NBA playoffs playing in the background here, I was tooooo wrapped up in your stories and I have no idea what the score is with the NY Knicks and Indiana Pacers...I say who cares about the game...lol.... I just love your pics and stories.

Thanks again.

Larry

*** NEW Stories ***
Like my previous TR’s, this is not going to be a day to day TR, but a series of stories about animals and special situations based on our last trip from november 11th 2012 till december 9th 2012.

Story 11 – The Other Side of… -


Hello and great to see you again. :) :)

Watching television and reading newspapers does not really makes us happy today.
Lot’s of bad news about anything what humans should not. Looks like we do not learn anything from the past. Just referring to all the killings of animals and destryoing of the forest worldwide. I even don’t want to open the latest reports of rhino poaching anymore because it makes me sic and angry…..
Not a nice and warm introduction but it is an expression of a feeling …..

So what is the remedy for now ? Going through my pictures of last trip to find something nice, warm and positive for myself and you.

Then suddenly I found something that makes me smile and saying ohhhhh… how cute and lovely

It’s a story about the other side of Hyena’s , mainly seen as: fast walking away, dirty, aggressive but not seen that many times as friendly and caring… with small puppies so close to you

It happended when we left Shingwedzi towards Mopani. Driving the main road and about halfway I saw something on the left side of the road… just about 10 meters away.
Preparing the pictures my mood changed and gave me a warm and nice feeling… hope it does work for you too….

Think I can say that it is about The Other Side of Hyena’s …

Let’s meet the family… some adults, a younster and yesss 2 pups.

-

Mother laying down with one of her pups

-

-

If you see this at short distance you’re quiet and something like ohhhhh is the sound you make.

-
Image
-

The youngster was not really that happy, expressing a jealous look… “mommy does not want me around anymore and the two puppies getting all attention grrrrrrr”

-
Image
-

There is puppy 2 coming into the scene together with another adult checking if everything is allright.

-
Image
-

With some whispering the pup looked at me with these black eyes to find out “what is whispering to me ?”

-
Image
-

Again the youngster expressed clearly how he was thinking about his little brother… look at his eyes…

-
Image
-

Hahahahaha….and what did the pup do….. yes… standing with his feet on his older brother…right thing to do….

-
Image
-

Puppy back to mommy….

-
Image
-

And if one puppy is doing that…it does not take long for the other one to join

-
Image
-

Just that moment two others were almost starting a fight so Big Mommy had to intervene

-
Image
-

All quiet again and time to be mother again…caring for your babies

-
Image
-

And babies are hungry …all the time so why not find a nipple to suck…

-
Image
-

Without words…. Her expression does say enough

-
Image
-

Puppies…. Drink and have a good life ….byeeeeeee

-
Image
-

End of this story

With a smile on my face I like to say : Happy Pentecost, Beaux Pentecôte, Feine Pfingsten en Fyn Pinkster

Next story….? BC Story about a very very special Mother along the S100


Aat & Elly

For us hyaenas were always on the other side as an animal that is living in clans together and sharing nearly everything is always something very special :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks so much Aat, especially the little pups do always leave a smile on my face as they are simply so cute :dance:

Thanks Philip1,
I was just reading a post about "how to write a TR" :) , well I only can say I do it my way. Very easy with that, one likes it or does not like it. As long as some people like it I continue posting stories :) :) :)
