Lack of Critters

The weather is so cold now (says a warm blooded South African!) and the surrounding veld is bare. I'm hard pressed to find insects and critters to post here. However, I scrolled back in my archives and found a praying mantis which I'd photographed in my shop (afterwards I took it outside and carefully placed it on some green shrubs)

Despite the cold, albeit sunny days, Skabby and I never miss our daily walk when I get home from work.  And it's a proven fact, after a brisk 2km walk along the farm roads and back, I'm totally warmed up and energetic to boot. 

Yesterday a few hundred meters from home, I spotted Junior hiding in a field above the road. I didn't have my camera with me so I've found photos from months ago. Junior is a beagle x dachshund who has - since we moved in - taken exception to Skabenga.  Yesterday as we passed her, she hurled her little body into the road and at Skabenga's heels He looks back sheepishly and walks on without taking any more notice. 

Junior's mom has told her that she is the only one who doesn't like Skabby. Everyone else loves him. She just gives her a "look" and continues on her vendetta against her enemy.
