... wiggling tale, used to attract prey.

A desert chameleon was walking on the leaves of a small bush.

The first little critter that we saw was a big black Tok Tokkie beetle that collected drinking water by doing a headstand in the early morning, allowing the fog to condense on their backs. The water then runs down towards the mouthparts where the beetle can drink up to 40% of their body mass on a given morning.

A highlight for us was to observe a ...

... town. Still at least the law of three has finally run itself out in the safest way possible. The best road in Swakopmund is the one leading out of it.

Yesterday was surprised by the tour leaders as they took us to Fish River Canyon, dropped us all off at one view point to walk back to another view point to watch the sunset. On our return to the viewpoint they had set up cheese and biscuit and wine for us to watch the sunset axis group, who would believe how very civilised that was.
