A day without sunshine is like, you know, night – Steve Martin

We are currently experiencing an unseasonably cold winter here on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast. When the sun shows its face and the wind subsides, even for only a few minutes, we drop everything and go for a quick walk.

In our wanderings, we come across all sorts of creatures taking advantage of the small respites from the foul weather.
