Some

Small, Smaller, Smallest fauna

from Africa.

The Masked Weaver, 11–14.5 cm (4.3–5.7 in) long,

which makes it nearly the same length

as the Scrub Robin.

However, at 35 grams, the Weaver weighs

nearly twice as much.

The Scrub Robin is roughly the same length

as the Weaver, however, at just 17–23 grams

it is the Roboin is the smaller of the two.

The of my images today is the Dung Beetle,

which varies in size from 5mm to 30mm,

or about 0.2 to 1.2 inches.

  Some dung beetles can bury dung 250 times

their own mass in one night.

Visual treats

Visiting Notre de Dame de Paris was a real treat…

…made all the more special after the Cathedral…

…was ravaged by fire with 12 months.

I guess I have seen the Eiffel Tower…

…lit up in movies, however seeing it

in person was fantastic.

The Moulin Rouge was also a

must see in Paris.

I doubt that even in my younger days

would I have gone fishing

in the vicinity of white water…

 

…let alone the white water of Victoria Falls.

An optional helicopter flight over Victoria Falls…

 …to view the effect the rushing waters of

the Zambezi River has had on the landscape

leaving previous falls sites high and dry.

A goodbye London special treat was

a ride on the London Eye.

 

Well worth the time for some nice views of London…

…after dark.

Finally…

…after hearing my Father speak of Menin Gate

from time to time, I was pleased to find

a tour group that included a visit

to Menin Gate in its

Western Front itinerary.

 

So it was that in early June of 2017,

before a relatively small crowd, I was

part of the ceremony that commemorates

the Great War each and every night.

Three local buglers performed the last post

in a simple but moving ceremony at Ypres’

Menin Gate, in Belgium

educate

provide training to complete a task.

If truth be known Candi began fetching while we

were trying to teach Taji to fetch.

As for catching the rope…she only fetches her rope…

…the only education she has received has been

and still is a hearty Well Done each time

she takes a clean catch.

 

We would always wean lambs in December,

usually as the weather was warming up.

To ensure the lambs would find water we would

always leave one or two sheep with the lambs

to make sure the lambs would find water.

In other words educate the lambs.
