We stop and let the dogs behind their fences see us...
On the course, it's off-leash and he and Eddy enjoy every minute !
Skabenga enjoys a good plodge in the dam at Hole No 5
Luckily the birds aren't too fazed with the splashing. This beautiful Grey Heron stood here all the time we were at the water's edge
The Little Grebe in the middle of the dam
An African Spoonbill on the left bank!
It was also not at all concerned about the splodging dogs!
The local Reed Cormorant swims across the dam...
...and hops onto a short pillar; one of the Blacksmith Lapwings lurks behind!
An army helicopter flew overhead
Skabenga gave chase! Can you see the "speck" dog and even smaller "speck" helicopter in the sky?
Walking through a firebreak I photographed the noxious Black Jack (bidens pilosa).
But look at it's beautiful flower!
I couldn't get enough ...
...of snapping it !
Do click on the link above the first of these photos and read up about this invasive weed . The petals of the flowers I photographed had already fallen off; the flower would soon seed (like the white one to the back) and then spread its spiky "fruits" which are already visible in the yellow flower.
Further along I came across these dainty little flowers
And these on a cluster
I love how the buds are blue but when opened are soft lilac
Back home, I divest myself of my peak and prescription glasses; my walking shoes and then I take my camera to my desk, download the photos and do a blog post!

I'm linking to Our World Tuesday here
HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU ALL!
