While driving through Potsberg dad and I spotted a Cattle Egret looking for food. Not long afterwards it was successful and caught a scorpion.
We sat by the side of the road for quite a while watching it fight with the scorpion. This was a first for me. Even dad said he never saw one eat a scorpion before.
This is the reason why I love photography and spending time in nature. One always see something new and if you have your camera with you one can document what you saw…

Ostriches are very big birds that can’t fly…. But oh my word they can run very fast and they lay very big eggs….
I used to love to listen to the stories my mother told me about her childhood vacations on the Ostrich farm were her grandparents stayed. She told me how she and her nephew use to go play in the Ostrich penns. They were not aware that it was breeding season and got to close to the eggs. Mom told us that she never knew she can run that fast or jump over the fence….
When I was about 10 years old my parents took us to Oudtshoorn known for all it’s Ostrich farms. My mom also showed us were she spent her school holidays. I remembered that holiday as if it was yesterday. Sitting on the back of that big bird and feeding it. I found it very interesting that Ostriches eats stones well everything they can swallow to be honest. They really like shiny things too.
Ostrich eggs are very big and srong. One can stand on it and it won’t break. I would never believed it but I saw it with my own two eyes. One Ostrich egg equals 24 eggs and it is a taste to get use to. I personally love it especially when you make omelettes of it.
While visiting the Westcoast National Park last year for the first time I had the opportunity to take some awesome photo’s of the Ostriches in a field of yellow flowers.

Potsberg has some of the most beautiful landscapes. I just love capturing them. During flowerseason it just take it to the next level…
In the past there were more colors visible but due to the drought we had the yellow flowers took over and only here and there you stil had patches of purple, pink and white flowers. Don’t get me wrong it is still awesome and I got some beautiful photos with Bontebok and Ostrich. These I will share at a later stage….
Due to the fact that my trigger finger worked overtime I need to split our Potsberg visit in 3 posts….
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Please let me know what you think of my work. Have a Blessed week.
Yellow reminds me of the sun my favorite fruit bananas and also lemons…
On the spectrum of visible light yellow lies between orange and green.
Yellow is also associated with different feelings in different countries and cultures.
Yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, gentleness, humor,wisdom, happiness, glory, wisdom, and spontaneity. Yellow can also be associated with negative feelings like envy, jealousy, cowardice and sickness.
In photography you get to work closely with this color when editing and fine tuning you photos.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Please feel free to comment and like my post.
Pink is a color between red and white on the color spectrum. The color got it’s name from a flower also called Pinks.
Pink is the color most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and the romantic.
A combination of pink and white is associated with innocence.
We also wear a pink ribbon for Cancer awareness and here in South Africa National sport teams also wear pink for Cancer awareness.
I love pink, but I am not a big fan in wearing light colors. I would rather wear darker colors.
