Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Outdoors’.
In the broadest terms, I suppose that any image that wasn’t actually captured in an interior would qualify. However, in this shot – another from Sir Bani Yas island in Abu Dhabi – I’ve gone for more of a ‘great outdoors’ feel, which is certainly enhanced by the moon hanging over the landscape.

This week, Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge has the subject of ‘Tongues and Tails’. This is something I would definitely think twice about googling while in mixed company.
Anyway….in the game reserve on Sir Bani Yas island in Abu Dhabi it certainly used to be possible to be driven through the giraffe compound and feed the locals through the open window of your SUV, as illustrated here. You can just about see the giraffe’s tongue, which in real life is actually blue.
