A long column of ants crossing from one side of the road to the other
You could see a definite line as the ants crossed in front of our vehicle
I zoomed in on one ant to prove that they really were alive and crossing the road!
Happy that I managed to capture something so different, I got back into the vehicle and we continued down the road. No trip over the weekend would be complete without us seeing at least one deer (buck). Sure enough as we drove along I saw a movement in the bush. Grant stopped and I managed to get several photos of a Klipspringer standing quite still in the thorn scrub.
Once again we drove along (remember we're birding at the same time!) and a little while later Grant stopped suddenly, pointing to the edge of the road. There were several mice running across our path and into holes in the sandy bank. One stopped dead (obviously hoping to escape detection!) and I managed a photo.
A few meters along the road, the same thing happened on the other side of the road. Grant stopped and I only managed to get a photo with the last mouse facing away from me.
Another mouse, this time facing away from the camera
