The dwarf mongoose (Helogale parvula) is a very small mongoose with short legs, small ears and eyes and a short tail. It has a short snout and a round head with slightly infantile features. The color can vary from a yellowish, reddish, greyish brown or even black. It's commonly found in
savannah and woodland habitats. This animal is diurnal which means it's active during the day. Although I only saw this one mongoose at the time, it's a very social animal that lives in small colonies of usually 6-12 members, up to 30.
While birding on the mine, I snapped an Agama Lizard on a rocky ledge

My spring bloom for today, is a Scabiosa growing in my South African garden.
Scabiosa is also known as the Pincussion Flower. Scabiosa plants have many small flowers of soft blue lavender, lilac or creamy white, borne on a single head on a tall stalk. Scabiosa flowers are nectar rich and attract a variety of insects including moths and butterflies.
Happy Saturday to you all!
