Thanks Sharifa, Pumbaa and Hilda. Moving on.
Sunset Dam attracts me like a magnet.
The young Hippo's were out and about for a change.
And some Zebra's-always on high alert as they come to drink water. Anything suspicious, even a "noise" and they jump.
And then to make my last day special, this bird, one of my favourites, especially in its Juvenile form. Saw it come flying in, and waited, it settled in a tree not too far from the road, and started a long preening process.
This looks rather comical-the body facing one way and the face another way.
The heart getting heavy as I make my way to Skuks, and from there it will be Numbi gate for the homeward bound leg. Well there was soemthing to cheer me up.
THe mating pair were busy with you-know-what when I arrived, but the angle for decent photographs was not good, so I opted to turn the car around to get a better shot, but by then it was over , for now at any rate. The male dissappeared into the bushes, and his lady opted to rest in the shade, just visible to the many cars that were by now gathering.
This I thnk is a Martial Eagle.
And I have said nothing about the flood damage up to now. Here are some pics.
