Zebra’s Standing in long grass


I am not going to say much today. Here are some random photos of seagulls taken at Table View during our visit there in March 2019.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Dead trees with purpose…

There are just something about a tree dead or alive in the middle of a river or pond.

It looks beautiful even if dead and it serves a purpose too. For some it’s a resting place and for others it is a good place to dry off after nice bath….

Personally I love trees in water. The reflections they make is awesome and I love capturing it. Walking around the pond one can capture it from different angles and it never looks the same….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

I read on Instagram that in 1930 there were only 30 Bontebok left in the world….

According to Wikipedia they were killed as pests and at one stage only 17 existed.

Today Bontebok are only found in South Africa in protective areas like our Sanparks.

I was lucky and got a awesome photo opportunity when I visited The West Coast National Park and Potsberg in September last year. The Bontebok walked straight to my car like a model and looked straight into the lens….

At another spot I captured a few in a field. When I edited the photos I spotted a calf and his mom….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Please feel free to let me know what you think.

Mondays are Trash days….

Today is Monday… Trash day…. Also a public holiday so I kind of forgot about it… Slept a bit later than usual and while doing my daily morning routine of cleaning and sweeping I remembered about the trash…

Luckily for me everybody is running a little late this morning and I got my trash out in time….

While walking inside I saw a bird in my Yellowood tree. I did not recognize it and knocked on my son’s bedroom window and asked him to bring my camera.

I must say it was the longest wait I had in a while. I was afraid I am going to miss my opportunity to capture and identify these birds…

My son gave me my camera through his window and I started taking photos hoping that one or two will be in focus. The wind was blowing and it was a challenge but as you will see later I did manage to get a few shots.

Then a big truck passed my house and it scared these beautiful birds away. There were at least 10 that I could count when they flew of…

After I downloaded my photos I got my books out and started searching… I came across a photo of a Red-Faced Mousebird and was surprised. The last time I saw a Mousebird was while I was still living with my parents. We had a breeding pair of Speckled Mousebirdswho came back every year during breeding season and they used to annoy our dogs alot….

Here are the photo’s I could use from this morning….

It’s been a while…..

Good day everyone,

Well I am back….  It’s been quite a roller coaster ride for me since October 2015.  But I am in a good place now.

Over the past few weeks I started editing photo’s of the last holiday my Mother went with us. Must admit I still get very emotional when I  work on the photo’s. Miss her so much but I know she is watching over me every single day.

Here are just a few of the over 4000 photo’s I took on our trip to Pilanesberg Nature Reserve in July 2015. Believe me there is still allot on it’s way.
