After last nights rain, and a day of complete cloud cover I was lucky enough to see this chap and his family stick their heads out to catch the setting sun.

Excellent pictures everyone.

SO and I play a game in the car where points are awarded for each sighting and at the end of the day there is always only one winner. We have come to know that spotting a dwarf mongoose ALWAYS is a bad omen for points. Without fail the first person to spot one of these will not win the day.

Lovely as they are, they have never brought luck..................but I still love to see them.
