Resident horses in Glen Reenen Rest Camp snapped as we drove past
Back home several weeks ago, Grant and I spotted a small flock of Southern Bald Ibis in the paddock next to the property. Although not rare, these birds are only found in a small patch in South Africa: we've only ever seen them here the Drakensberg and the Eastern Free State. Unfortunately they were spooked as I wound the car window down and flew off before I could get closer and clearer images.

At the beginning of May, I posted about having lunch with artist friend, Steve and his equally talented wife, Estelle. He and she of the "Muthi the Dog" fame. While eating outdoors, the resident Egyptian goose landed on the BBQ table begging for scraps.

Muthi snuffled around on the lawn for tidbits. At 147 years old, he still enjoys a get-together with his beloved mum and dad and their friends
With the still air and calm, warm days, we've seen many balloon trips over the valley. April also has many public holidays and the valley buzzed with tourists.
We could hear the people talking in the balloons
Full moon; visibility 100%; age 15.30 days; 11 May 2017 @ 6.22am
The full moon was extra big this month. I had plenty of opportunity to photograph it with Thunder's antics in the night and Grant waking me to tell me this!
