My Favourite

After two weeks travelling through South Africa seeing wonderful scenery, flowers, birds, sitting on an ostrich then eating it for lunch, lions, crocodiles, wilderbeasts, meercats, holding an elephant's tusk, penguins, seals, lions, pumas you'd think I could do better than this - a photo of a Dung Beatle - but I love them.

They burrow into the dung and gather a golf ball sized lump then roll it to a hiding place where they lay their eggs inside it. They nick each others dung balls and fight over them. Very entertaining.

Lol! Welcome back!

Hope you'll expand on your travels a bit at some point when you've caught up with all those tedious things like the washing and the post etc.

Happy New Year Pal. We stayed in three hotels but I fogot to take photos of the rooms, which were lovely, but I did take lots of photos of Food and Wine. Both excellent.
