Another beautiful day in the Central Drakensberg
As usual I have a mix of farm animals, birds and water birds to post.
As Skabby and I set out for our second walk of the day on Thursday, we met the milk cows being herded down the road to the dairy. I decided to get a different angle of the cattle and went down on one knee to photograph them.
Two things happened: Skabby turned around and ran back to me, licking my face...
...and the second thing that happened, the cows stopped dead, bunching up and causing the others behind them stop as well.
All the cows stopped while Skabby careened into me - precariously kneeling in the road!
I had to post this White-fronted Bee-eater with our beautiful mountain peaks in the background
Earlier this week I walked further than Skabby's watering hole. I climbed a steep bank and could look out over the dam which feeds the little pond where Skabby has a daily dip.

Egyptian geese pair - the male on the left and the female next to him. In the water in front of the geese, is a Red-Billed Teal

At the lower watering hole, while Skabby cavorted in the water, I photographed an African Sacred Ibis. And its silhouette.

Back home, as Skabby and I decamped, I noticed a movement on the veranda wall. Our normal house resident.
(I await Sandra's comment!)
I am linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen here.
Wishing you all a happy and safe Saturday.
