Golden silk orb-weaver

The golden silk orb-weaver is one of the largest spiders in our garden. The large female weaves a strong, yellowish web and catches anything that finds itself entangled. The much smaller male doesn’t need a lot of food, but I’m sure he shares every now and then.

Sunday afternoon

Speeding on the bicycle over the sandy lanes, with two bottles of juice on the bike rack Рdo you remember those Sunday afternoons?

(Btw I love the outfit: Millennium Falcon meets Pixie Pals…)

Zebra love

We encountered a group of zebras standing on the road. After waiting for a while, a second group arrived. In this photograph zebras from the two groups meet and greet each other. Such affection and love!

Painted dogs

African wild dogs, also known as painted dogs, are among Africa’s most endangered species. There are probably around 6,000 animals left in the wild. It’s therefore always a blessing to see them, like here at sunset in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia.

On our way

Romance in the bush: a male and a female rhino walking down the road. We must have followed them in our car for over half an hour while they walked, stopped, grazed a bit, walked on. Beautiful animals.
