This is an old Huey helicopter , used mainly in the Vietnam war. This particular one is now used for tourist chopper flights over Cape Town. I caught it in action flying over my house.
Last night was the very very hot and still weather that you get just before a thunderstorm, and I saw something that I have never seen before, two dragonfly’s hanging from my bedroom light, so here is a pic of one of them. It was a difficult picture to take because the light was on, and I could not pull the cord without scaring the little guy off.
So after a little experimentation, here is what I managed to do.
Correction: This is a damselfly and not a dragonfly. According to Wikipedia:
Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest. Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly broadens near the base. Damselflies are also usually smaller, weaker fliers than dragonflies, and their eyes are separated.
I was driving home, when I saw a huge fire in some open land. The fire
trucks were there, and although devastating to the grass, an interesting photo opportunity.
Onions for sale on the side of the road. R25 for the onions is about $3, cheap even for local prices!
A flyer that I found in my postbox. This doctor is offering some remarkable services. He must be highly skilled, and all those services for only R50 (about $6).
