The Residents

A frog on a lemon

A chameleon trying to hide

A gecko looking for some bugs

A lazy lizard

What you looking at ?

A Mozambique Cobra which was caught by the dogs luckily they were't bitten that time. Not so fortunate the second time. Told in a previous blog.

Can you see me now??

Well I'll be off , don't bother me.

Inside the cave at the back of the house.

Who is hiding in there??

A swallows nest.

Roots of a fig tree growing on the top of the kopje (hilllock) above the cave.

Random Pictures

Here is a chicken wondering what I am doing. I tried to make it smile but I think she had food on her mind.

Mother chicken followed by another chicken with Fos on guard.

One of our secretive Duikers who is very elusive and it is a treat to see them appear every now and again.

A Natal Robin looking for some grubs. We have plenty of bird life here but don't have a decent enough camera for long shots.

A baboon surveying his domain on the rock behind the house.

A flooded Crocodile river. Which is just down the road from us.

A rainbow after a rain shower. I am still looking for the pot of gold as some of the rainbows end at the bottom of the garden. It is rumoured that Paul Kruger in the time of the Boer War buried gold in our vicinity.

A stormy sky which often means we end up with no electricity for a while with all the lightening bolts that ensue.

A couple of fledglings which you will be pleased to know reached maturity and flew the nest.

A couple of homo sapiens having a siesta on the stoep. The one on the right looks a bit suspect.
Well there is a peek into my life.
