Baffers-Short Little Cricket Weekend Trip Report

Unread postby Baffers » Mon Mar 15, 2010 2:36 pm

Hi guys

We were very busy during the cricket weekend with some "stuff" so we didnt get to drive around a lot. We did hoever find the following things that was worth the while or at least that we managed to take some good pictures of.

The malachite Kingfisher and the two Dragon flies were both taken at Lake Panic Near Skukuza and the Puffadder near Malelane Gate on Sunday afternoon on the way out.

The little lizard comes from Nkulu on the Lower Sabie Road.

Thats it. Short and Sweet :)

At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"
