‘Capture the Colour’ photos

They say. ” a picture paints a thousand words. Well, rather than asking you to write a five thousand word blog post, we’re inviting you to produce a blog post with up to 5 photos that really do ‘Capture the Colour’… the 5 colours Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Red.”

I was nominated by “Anotherdayinparadise” to do this challenge which ends on August 29th. I have to nominate 5 other bloggers, and time is fast running out. Fast running out, my word a last minute challenge I like to accept.

Babbas Lodge Bike outing.

I went with my Son-in-law for his Sunday bike ride at Babbas Lodge… The dogs there, fascinated me… even to them having their own water point…

I love dogs…

The riders take off and I now have time on my hands to look around and capture whatever is there… and these three dogs just caught my eye…

Bushbuck or bosbok…

The bushbuck ( Tragelaphus scriptus ) is a small antelope in Africa , found south of the Sahara.

Adult bushbuck are an average weight of 70 kg and a height of 90 cm. The rams have horns up to 55 cm in length.

Bushbuck are not easily spotted, because they frequent dense forest areas and along rivers banks

The female gestation period is six to seven months, when a single lamb is born in the spring or summer. Bushbuck have a potential lifespan of nine years.

These, a mother and her young paid us a visit in the camp… casually walked past us….
