Expanding the gallery

I said I would expand the gallery to include two more categories – one mammal and one reptile category.

Tree Squirrels look very cute. `They are common in Mashatu Game Reserve.

They are very wary when coming down from  their main tree to eat and drink on the ground.

As cute as they look they are highly territorial and will savage another male which comes into its turf.

Winter time can be tough for them due to the lack of water. Their familiar chucking is a sure sign there is a snake or wildcat or bird or prey around.

The second category I have added its snakes. I have still to build a reasonable collection but this is a start.

In Namibia, sociable weaver nests are often good places to start looking for a Cape Cobra.

They seem to enjoy raid the nests for eggs and chicks. The picking can be good at the right time.

nother snakes seen along the banks of the Chobe is the Green Water Snake.

It is small so easily missed in the reeds but in the sunlight it has a stunning emerald green colouring.

I will continue to add new categories and insert fresh images into existing categories to keep your interest up.

Enjoy

Best wishes
