Tony what a breathtaking scene. Just beautiful!
Thanks so very much.

While reading an article today on LiveScience about African ecosystems, they had a picture of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Just wanted to share. Absoloutely beautiful.

Steph, I love nature documentaries and there are many available on the internet. Since I don't have a TV, I often don't see the current ones.
Tony, the photo of migration of wildebeests and zebras across the Serengeti Plains just seems impossible. It looks like they might need a family planning discipline as well. I know water is a big problem there; I do hope their climate conditions stay favorable to wildlife.

How lovely Tony! I remember learning the migrations in class and discussing their routes. The picture is wonderful.
I love to watch wildlife shows. I buy them whenever I can. David Attenborough - Life On Earth series is great.
Anyone else watching any? I think I'll make a discussion on them.

Tony that horse is so beautiful - a black beauty. The horse has a really nice shiny black coat - reminds me of Black Beauty. I liked that movie.
Thanks so much all of you.
