Critters alive !

With the onset of summer, the garden is looking good and of course critters are thriving in and around us. Also, while traveling to the city earlier this week, I snapped cattle grazing in farm fields along the way. (I missed the horses and guinea-fowl while I was reading my mail on my Smartphone!)
 Cattle grazing
Back home I photographed a grasshopper on the lawn
It didn't like me zooming in on it and kept trying to hide
Last photo then I left it in peace
Eddy and Skabenga frolic on the driveway

The Banksia rose is looking most beautiful at our gate entrance 
Our lab pup is growing up fast and is very gangly at the moment

I'm linking my post to Eileen's Saturday Critters here

Happy Saturday to you all!


  1. Love all your photos Jo. The yellow blossoms look amazing and your puppy looks hilarious. I've never seen a puppy or a dog sleep like that, lol. I just have to say that the grasshopper is gigantic. I've never seen such big ones like that. It must eat very well. Have a wonderful weeken (and I hope to hear from you soon). Big hugs. xx

  2. Hello Jo, what a great assortment of critters. I love the cows in the field, the grasshopper, Eddy and most of all your adorable guard dog. Skabenga does looks very relaxed laying there. Wonderful photos. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  3. That's a big grasshopper! Nice to see the poochies.

  4. love the grass hopper especailly the one on the chair leg. and the African Guard Dog is just to funny, showed it to bob and we both had a laugh our loud

  5. Such an interesting variety of shots. The grasshopper looks quite big! I had to smile at the puppy sprawled over the rungs of the chair :)
