Good morning.....
Thank you to Mike_Young for his UA for my rhinos, much appreciated...
I am starting to feel a bit of a stick in the mud...GrinGrinGrin had our 3rd incident this morning. This time we couldn't dig the vehicle out of the mud, we had to call for help to get towed out. Some areas we drive in are very dry and others are like quicksand....This morning we got stuck 100m from a herd of 200 buffaloGrin
Thought I would upload this for shadow Saturday.....captured on the first day we arrived
The birders and butterfly photographers would love it here at the moment, such a variety of birds and butterflies...
Sorry if I have missed your images or merely voted, the internet is very poor in the middle of nowhere.
Have a nice day
