And when they get closer, just move away and let them pass! 😁

Expo à la Collégiale Saint Pierre à Orléans Du 29 juin au 25 août La série Empress explore la richesse culturelle de différentes communautés en s’intéressant plus particulièrement aux parures et ornements que portent les femmes. L’objet porté est souvent un moyen d’embellir le corps, et résulte d’une pulsion esthétique profonde et commune à l’ensemble de l’humanité. Il y a dans la parure une forme d’affirmation identitaire qui peut aussi être accompagnée d’autres significations : appartenance ethnique, catégorie sociale, objets rituels, talismans, système de communication et même système de comptage. Empress vise à porter une réflexion sur notre identité, notre patrimoine et l’évolution de la société actuelle qui promeut l’uniformisation et glorifie le consumérisme. Empress crée un univers référentiel en mettant en lumière des femmes de pouvoir contemporaines porteuses d’une culture forte qui doit trouver son avenir dans notre société actuelle.

What caught my attention was the knocking and then the bright yellow or gold back - it's a woodpecker, specifically Grey headed woodpecker

Purple grenadier - I had a fine time trying to photograph this one since it kept hopping all over, inside the bushes

You get familiar with sacrifice. That’s if you want to witness the glory of East Africa: the kind people, simple and slower way of life, gorgeous animals and wilderness — you must be willing to sacrifice. It will be painful. You will get sick. And you will be sickened with what you see. It’s not easy to live there, nor to make a living. But it is even more difficult to preserve and articulate what you witness: the miracles within the hardship, the beauty amidst the violence, the joy in the suffering, the patience at the heart of deprivation. Upon return, how does a traveler assimilate, apply, and share the lessons? What if your home country and people you’re around are unable to see the blessings they enjoy? Is it normal to feel impatience with the spirit of meanness, pride, entitlement, arrogance, and evil?I’ve never been so grateful for the people who oppose these things.

Nowadays it is better to be born a girl in Africa than in Asia. African populations generally have no discrimination as to the sex of the child. The little girl is as welcome as the little boy. ⠀ Although girls are less educated, women continue to be seen as a source of wealth in Africa. Unlike India, in Africa men must pay a dowry to the bride's parents. ⠀ 📸: @claudiawullen 2 📸: @allysoncampbellphoto #makesmiles #goodlifegoals #photooftheday #beyourbest #missionhumanitaire

I don’t want to ever forget what God allowed me to learn and see in East Africa. Like this. Mt Kilimanjaro. Kind of a big deal — like 20,000 ft, 4th highest peak in the world type big deal. Never expected to see it in my lifetime, especially not during rainy season. But amazingly the clouds parted as we left the park, and giraffes suddenly appeared for the foreground.

Follow @matobohillslodge for daily safari🦒 inspiration🏋🏾♂, fun competitions🎉, giveaways🎁 and a positive sense of Zimbabwean🇿🇼 community spirit❤. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a landscape where the Spirits 👻👻 live in the caves and the tradition thrives in the hills🏞, we find ourselves humbled by the epic beauty of the nature🌴🌴. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s not hard to see why the Matobo Hills🏞 are Zimbabwe's best kept secret. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unlike other famed parks in the region, you won’t be surrounded by dozens of cars 🚗🚙 jostling for camera position📸, the Matobo Hills are prized for pristine beauty 😍 and secluded worlds-away appeal. Zimbabwe's history comes to life at the Matobo Hills World Heritage Site and 🎨 Cultural Landscape. This is one of the few places in the country with a tangible link to the past!🔫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🐾 The Matobo hills hide within their rocky outcrops perhaps the best preserved San Bushmen paintings anywhere in the world🌏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Towering above the caves, the hills beckon 🧑🏻‍🤝‍🧑🏻 visitors to explore the surrounding areas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The hills in Matobo🙏 have been the religious headquarters of many Bantu tribes since the 15th Century😃. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rain dances 🕺🏽 and other religious ceremonies were held there and to this day, some still believe that several hills ⛰ should not be pointed at, that would just bring bad luck😙. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The #Matobo Hills are a paradise for nature lovers😍, offering a host of naturalist led experiences, including fishing, birding🕊, hiking and bicycling🚴🚴. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's more? A trip to visit the local inhabitants😍 of the Silozwe Valley in the Matobo Hills is a cultural treasure for those who wish to gain a🤔 deeper understanding of what it means to be a rural Zimbabwean. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Through interaction with the friendly and talented locals 🤗🤗(observe them playing football ⚽⚽or dancing) you will understand the joys and hardships😍 of their everyday life.
