Now, if you know me you know I love all animals and there are none that I'm afraid of... except horses! That notwithstanding, I remember how, in 1997, I partook in a community fun horse ride. I covered 38 kms through the maize lands, mostly on my own; as the rest of the people - including my dear husband - cantered away without me! I received a certificate to say I'd completed the ride; the other legacy was that I could hardly walk for a week! Needless to say, that was the first and last time I've ever been on a horse.
But I love them and think they are majestic, clever and beautiful animals.
Grey heron at the water hazard near the fifth hole
I love to capture the reflection as well
The sun making its appearance
Never a dull moment with, or for, the dogs
A whimsical take on the willow
I love the long shadows at this time of the day
I knelt to snap the Verbena Aristigera (Fine-leafed Verbena) while my dog waited ahead to...
...launch his body into the air...
...and onto Eddy!
I tried several times to get both blooms in focus - as you can see, I failed!
I was pretty pleased with this image, though!
A flock of birds against the early morning light
At a guess, I'd say they were Ibis although I've never seen such a large flock - OK, Grant said: Not ibis. These are geese because of the large flock and also the direction they're flying in . A new one on me - but I take his word for it!
Walking docilely ahead of his mama - Eddy is that white speck near the white gate posts
It was still quite dark so this old car's lights flashed me as I passed
The substation silhouetted against the rising sun.

Happy Saturday to you all!
