It has been a while since I posted new images from Heia Safari Ranch
This Peacock was proudly showing off his tail feathers.

Yes, Vervet Monkeys are cute...
but they can also be a nuisance.
Don't leave you bungalow door or windows open.

Close by, yes...but they are not THAT inquisitive.
An African Hoopoe scuttling around looking for food
It is cactus time again.
I have tried to get the resident species on the property,

Welcome to the first foal of the season.
And it has already been in the swimming pool.

More cactus flowers...

I hope that tomorrow will be bright skies and sunshine for the first swim of the season.
The swimmers will be wet either way,
But I cannot shoot in the rain.
I will have to see what the morning brings...
