Rietvlei Dam outside Pretoria,

Went for an early morning drive today, at a local Game Reserve, wasn’t sure what I might see and ended with 384 Photos. Cropped many out at home, and brought it down to 165 I could not throw away. It started with THE BIG BIRD……… the Ostrich..

This next little fellow caught a crab and promptly sat and eat it……………

And this big Lad came over to see what was happening and nearly gave himself a rub on the bonnet of my car.

The last four photos I took at one of the bird hides that are placed around the dam……….
