'Goggas' of the Noorsveld, South Africa by 

Insects and all sorts of ‘creepy crawlies’ are commonly called ‘goggas’ in Afrikaans, one of the eleven official languages in South Africa. Some goggas we love, some we hate and others are so utterly fascinating to watch in nature, especially through the macro lens!

My husband and I live in Jansenville in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. We both love nature, and therefore most of my subjects are the incredible wealth of fauna and flora in Southern Africa. I also write poetry in Afrikaans (one of the eleven official languages in South Africa) and often combine these poems with the photos I’ve taken. Thank you for stopping by!
