My photos at last! (Earthwatch trip)

Hi everyone,
I've finally got some of my Africa pics online, they should be at http://www.kodakgallery.com/BrowsePh...1&sort_order=0

We didn't take the best camera with us but I'm really pleased with how they have turned out, I hope you like them!

For those who don't know my friend Jes and I took part in an Earthwatch project (black rhino) at Sweetwaters reserve in Kenya.

I'll second Kavey's comment -- what a horn! Looks like a very nice reserve. I understand that they also have chimps at Sweetwaters -- did you get to see them?

Did you see the horse/zebra hybrid at Mt. Kenya Safari Lodge. I was there in 2003 and really liked the mini-zoo.

Yowza! I think I'm in love with Morani.That's the first picture of a rhino with his mouth open I think I've ever seen.

Thanks, rainbow, and I'm so glad you had a good time.

This is Morani in 1998:

The horn was much smaller then.

Thanks for the pic Mitch, it's interesting to compare. Morani is really beautiful and his horn is definitely very impressive!

I'm glad you like the pics!

Thanks for the hair compliment too!

Looks like you had a great time. Thanks for sharing the photos.
I think Morani is puckering up for a big kiss in that one photo!

Yes, what a horn! Iíve read somewhere that Morani has 24-hour guards. Hope itís true because he looks like needing them. I didnít know that rhinos had pink lips!

Thanks, Rainbowrose, for sharing.
