I like the green contrast - the weather was overcast and raining, not good for photographing, but good for the farmers :-)

A small herd of Blesbok, the roof visible on the right is the cottage where we stayed.

It must be nice waking up in the morning to these sights. I wake up to the pounding of the hooves of passing buses and garbage trucks, and shrill beap of outraged motorists...

It is indeed, Dave, and we don't take it lightly or for granted. This little cottage is situatedout at a small game reserve about 30km from our home. It is actually a conservation officer's retreat, however, some years ago we were invited to stay there, and since then have been able to visit as often as we like. Although we do live in town, I do feel for those like you that live in the jungle of concrete and steel.Looking atyour shots though, you are able at least to "get out" and see something of nature, even if you have to take your personal bodyguard with you. [I often wish I had a pet leopard to ward off unwanted intruders :G]

Once again you have displayed a nice series of shots.* Even with the rain and overcast you did a nice job of bringing out the colors in the shot of the Orange-thoarted Longclaw.* Well done,* *Steve
