THE MORNING POST – THICK SKIN

Imagine you have a bit of an itch on your head and imagine that to give it a good scratch using strong sickle bush spines! You better have a large boss (the horn plate on top of the buffalo’s head) and a really thick skin.

This is a short video of a Cape Buffalo bull attending to such an itch. Have a good day 😊

PS: If you look carefully you recognize a Cape (Glossy) Starling sitting unperturbed in a tree nearby 😊

THE MORNING POST – UNUSUAL COLORS

Some colors appear a lot in nature and some colors are rather rare. This is a picture of one of my favorite small birds. It is a Violet-backed Starling. The male features the most magnificent iridecent plumage to attract the ladies.

Enjoy your Sunday!
