Leeufontein - Part 3
Have you ever had one of these crawl on you? It feels kind of weird. LOL!! Are there any vets out there? These are some kind of parasites crawling around on fresh dung from either a wild cat or dog and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about them?
A tiny grasshopper with its racing stripe.
The reserve has some wild animals on it and some like this zebra have become quite tame. It came over to see if we had something to eat and was quite contented to have a brown bread sandwich. :)
Such lovely dragonflies!! They were landing all around us and so easy to get a picture of for a change.
