Good morning...
So glad you all enjoyed my rhino images and sorry I left the best image for last. My hubby thought it was an awful pic as it was a view of their bums....I never learn, he has no clue about our tastesGrinGrinGrin
A special thank you to Ann and Bill for their UA's, always greatly appreciated.
I thought I would upload a Saturday shadow today.... a hippo with ox peckers on his back, he disappeared into the water 5 minutes later and they had to scatter
Have a great weekend, I have 4 more days of doing tourist trips around cape Town with our friends before life gets back to normal. Its been 7 weeks on the go

I guess that after the birds have finished lunching on you and removing all the small tics and fleas, then you are covered in bird poo, so what could be more natural than a leisurely bathe to remove the pooGrin
