11 May Guides News – April 2017
Summer months are generally a time of plenty. With the long, hot days, and we are privileged to witness many beautiful plants and trees species flowering, along with other interesting animals activities out in the bush. Along with that, and a significant part of summer is a large increase in the concentration of insects. Moths and butterflies flutter around the Bushveld, termites take flight from their nests, beetles scuttle across the floor, spiders weave their webs across all the pathways and geckos pick off insects buzzing around light sources during the night. All of this creepy crawly talk is the stuff of nightmares for some people. For a keen field guide like myself, however, it is a dream come true!
