0/* Sis

Your mindset to make the most of every day, regardless of weather or sightings is refreshing - kudos to you \O

I like the spa Buffs, Red Rocks scenery, the hammerkop w/ reflection ^Q^ , and the Yellow-b storks that always remind me of an Oriental painting. You certainly have an eye ;-) for nature's art in the form of trees - even the squirrel at the end of the entry shares your appreciation of artsy trunks :yes: Seems you and squirrels are kindred spirits. 0/0

This was the francolin day ^Q^

The tree looks like a Jackalberry to me, the leave shape and the bark is not Marula-like. Well-spotted!

This is a Hibiscus calyphyllus, Lemon-yellow rosemallow

and Heliotropium nelsonii, Common String-of-star

And I like the lady-starling and the hornbills in the Mopane O\/

Your Crowned lapwing looks also beautiful with the red legs in the greenery

Thanks Lisbeth,

that is why the S56 is still one of our favourite roads because of the beautiful trees along that road \O

and you are right when it is raining the good sightings are rare but nevertheless better rain than drought again :yes:

Great shots of the crested barbet and from the waterbucks :ty:

There are camps in Kruger were everything is okay but they are rare indeed - especially those missing hooks were to hang the towels on and reachable mirrors to put my contact lenses on without doing wrenches are rare and sometimes there are hooks or mirrors but simply for giants and I cannot reach them O** O** O** O**

The bush looks nicely green in and after the rains :-)

And the birds always look as if they felt sorry for themselves when their plumage is all wet and soaked lol
Kinda cute though.

Oh, and love that diva barbet lol

Despite the lack of steady big cat sightings, it must be really nice up there \O
