Another eclectic mix of critters

Today I have a really mixed bag of "critters" to share with you. 
Firstly, the frog is out and about on our patio every night
A broadside view of the croaker
Also on the patio: another two blooms of the Amaryllis bulb

The last time I featured my Amaryllis on this meme;
 today in the same tub, Rina's blooms appeared
Blogger friend, Gaelyn asked if Skabenga has met the cows yet? 
The answer is yes but he's not at all sure of them so he keeps a good distance away
Driving to Ladybrand earlier this week, I managed to snap this man leading his horse
I also managed to capture these cattle
Returning from Ladybrand that same day, we came up behind his tractor being driven along the main road (which is not really legal but is done regularly!) 
Just above my office window, I heard starlings. I snapped away at these two Wattled Starling (non-breeding adults)
The bird-feeder continues to attract birds to the seed and fruit displayed - above are a Cape Sparrow and a Village Weaver (both males)
And as for the only female kitty in the household - here's CHAPPIE!

I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen here

Happy weekend everyone!
