Seven without the Five :-)

These are seven images I took during the holiday season – when my Internet connection was down.  They are part of my “Without the Five” series (images 5-11).

– A colorful Caterpillar (I have no idea what species this is)
– A Thanda summer sunrise
– A morning bush scene with Giraffe and Buzzard
– A Spotted Eagle Owl in the moon/spot light (this image is a “merge” of two pictures from the same scene)
– A male Cheetah in motion
– A Red-billed Oxpecker resting on a Buffalo horn
– A Praying Mantis sitting on my car

Enjoy these beautiful images from my African home!
