You’re my sunshine by Rina Greeff
Die naam madeliefie, magrietjie of sommer daisy in die volksmond, word wyd gebruik vir ’n hele paar soorte madeliefie-plante. Die plant kan baie maklik met sukses van saad af gekweek word en kom ook maklik op in volle son in droë dele van die tuin.


Cosmos beauty by Maree Clarkson
Looking at my little garden.. just a while ago…
I saw a flower blooming and I love it so.
It’s tissue petals blowing in the breeze that is so light…
The ferny leaves all moving and buds so very tight.
Cosmos is it’s name and pink my favorite one…
A pretty garden treasure in the morning sun.

THIS ’OLE HOUSE by Mugsy

Namibia, Africa


The Drakensberg by DebbyTownsend

Mountain trail to the end of the earth by Antionette
Mountain trail to the end of the earth…… or that is what this looks like to me. Picture taken on top of the mountain overlooking Hermanus, South Africa.


Milkweed Locust by Johanna26
As there name suggests, these large locusts prefer to feed on the milkweed plant Asclepias fruticosus. Its vivid coloration serves as a warning sign to all predators that it’s not going to make a tasty lunch. Feeding on the milkweed plant allows it to absorb toxins into its body that can be poisonous to other hungry creatures. While it may not be the most appetizing of snacks, it sure is a beautiful thing!


Iridescent by Macky
Orange Breasted Sunbird – Nectarinia violacea, Betty’s Bay, Western Cape, South Africa.


AFRICAN FISH EAGLE – Haliaeetus vocifer -Visarend by Magaret Meintjes
Distinguished from all other raptors by their fully feathered legs. Prey is killed either by impact or by crushing in powerful talons and flesh is torn by the well hooked bill. Most eagles hunt while flying, wheeling effortlessly in rising warm air, and are seldom seen perched in fair weather.


Rest And Watch by Michael Moss
Cheetah female relaxing while keeping a watchful eye. Phinda Reserve, South Africa.


This is my road! by Graeme Hyde
This young lion was lying in the centre of the road through Chobe National Park, Botswana, and had no intention of moving. It was obviously intent on attacking the “cats-eye” reflector in the road while the rest of the pride were spread along the roadside.


Zebras, Leroo-La-Tau , Botswana, Africa by Adrian Paul
This inquisitive little group stood in the one spot for five minutes and then seemed to sense that their photo shoot was over, so they trotted offf into the distance.
