Fan-tailed Widowbird and dog[ged] exhuberance

 Good afternoon dearest fellow Bloggers. These past weeks Skabby and I have only been able to go for a walk very infrequently. It has rained incessantly in the Central Drakensberg, not allowing the farm roads to become walkable after the muddy conditions. However, one hot sunny day  last week (the heat has also been fierce this summer),  Skabby and I got out into the veld. 

As always, while said dog hurtles along the farm road, I often stop and take photos.

The regular stop for Skabby to have a swim 

Many exciting muddy puddles to splash through!
