I love your work.

Well done  :clap: :clap: :clap: Lovely black rhino with an unusually long secondary horn. The hornbill in the tree makes the scene. I miss the Game Reserves. Nothing like this in NZ.

Lovely work Bert, it is a sin how many wonderful animals are near the brink of extinction due to man's greed and vanity.  :'( For such an evolved creature, man can be incredibly moronic.
Cheers, Val

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Fantastic work Bert, as Dennis said, seeing the Hornbill in the tree and the Rhino makes me wish I was in the Reserve viewing them. There is nothing like it.  Aren't we so blessed to have seen all that wonderful wild life in their natural habitat?  Sad that they are being killed off as Val said due to man's greed and vanity.

Yes, Bert, it is in our blood something that we will never forget. I always tell my grandchildren that in Canada we have the squirrels in our yards daily but in 'Toti where I come from, we had the Vervet monkeys. Gosh, I even had them in my house when they were after any fruit in my kitchen. I wish you could see the expression on their faces!!!

Liz my apologies for the late reply but my life has been so busy with moving. Yes, my husband made the mistake of planting a banana tree in front of our kitchen window which was always open due to the heat and monkeys got into my kitchen and grabbed any food that was out.  I even had the most venomous snake, a mamba in my kitchen slithering on top of my cupboards. I had to call the Protection Services to get it out. Oh! I have so many stories to relate of my life growing up in South Africa, something I would not have changed for the world. I can't wait for my grandchildren to grow up so that we can take them there to experience a little of where we grew up.
