WAITING FOR SPRING

Winter stays long. Also in March there was a lot of snow and ice and even in the beginning of April there was no sign of Spring. Nature is probably 3 weeks behind it's "normal"  schedule. The picture below of the Great Tit says it all: It has been taken end of March, there should be a start of new leaves on willows and poplars, but no  such thing. In the back you can see some light snow falling....

SOUTHERN AFRICA IN JULY AND AUGUST

PICTURES OF THE NAMIB AND KGALAGADI TRANSFRONTIER PARK IN ALBUM " ARID LAND" . PICTURES MADE IN KRUGER NP AND IN KWAZULU NATAL IN AUGUST IN ALBUM " RECENT PICTURES.

Half July we went to Windhoek in Namibia, picked up our rental car, a Toyota Condor (2-wheeldrive, but a lot of room between the car and the road) and drove to Sesriem Campsite in the Namib Desert. This area is famous for its magnificent landscapes and well renowned by nature photographers from all over the world. My last visit to this area was in 2004 and I was not photographing digital at that moment. So I was looking forward to visit Namibia again. And I wasn't disappointed, although we had all sorts of weather: extremely bright with fantastic vistas but also sandstorms, which gave the area a completely different look.

SPRINGTIME IS COMING...!

In March suddenly temperatures rose and springtime was bursting. In the ponds of our garden the Marsh Marigolds are the first flowers to bloom.
As in every Spring, male toads are coming back to our main pond and start looking for females to mate. This time the number was slightly smaller than last year, due to dry weather conditions for quite some time now.
