I have been able to photograph rain more times

this year than in previous years.
rain_0011Not quite drops, just pouring down against our neighbour’s trees.
rain_2151Again on the car window…
rain_0003and fence wire after rain.
this rain_0612Although not very good photos,

these two demonstrate the effect of…

rain_0611

raindrop versus concrete.

My first sight of African animals…

impala_0504 was these bontebok…

impala_0505enjoying an early morning frolic…

impala_0509around their paddock…
impala_0510in Johannesburg.

There could be some blesbok among this group.  

To my eye they are very similar,

but both members of the antelope family.
