Thanks All

Like they say "if you build it they will come."

After my battle just to get them here.

Most of my pics need to be "edited" some. So will return tomorrow.

some more ellie swimming.

They came down everyday the chrismas long weekend during the mid-day heat.

You could see it was different familie groups. A new group would arrive and very discreetly join the rest in the water. Suddenly a large female would get out and her group would follow.

Great shots :thumbs_up: I'm glad you stuck with it.

What is that black worm with the yellow and white and red dots? :shock: Looks interesting in a photo. Not too sure I'd want to get too close though :redface:

That is a mopani worm. I'll go and dig in the archives to see if I can find a pic of the moth it turns in to.

Actually nice in a salad. The locals dry them and use them in stews and sheba (tomato & onion mix you eat with maize porridge (mielie pap)
