Enjoy the day.

Enjoy a great Sunday.

Captured raindrops on green leaves.

Enjoy the day while the week rushes to its end.

Midweek again, enjoy.

Caught this Mousebird sitting on a bush with its long tail clearly displayed.

A moment later it took off, but I did manage to catch the speedster in flight albeit that some focus was lost.

Photos taken at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Enjoy a super day.

Enjoy the weekend.

My bakkie (pickup) is not garaged or parked under a car port, it stands outside in the open. Some birds have discovered the side rear view mirrors and daily spend time there attacking their images.

A Sunbird at the mirror.

Weekend again, can’t believe how time flies. Enjoy the day.

This guy paid us a unique and short visit on Tuesday.
