As I promised last time I would do a video at the Rietvlei Nature Reserve and then randomly select the winning names.Well this morning my daughter,Shannon and I did go to the Rietvlei Nature Reserve and we did video the entire thing which I then tried to load onto You Tube but it was too big.Then I tried to load directly onto here but it took so long I gave up.But don't worry you didnt miss too much.All we saw were rhinos which were very far away.We tried to zoom but they still looked like rocks but the reserve warden assured us that they were rhinos and they did look like it to us definitely but on the video not so much.So that was the first winner we selected with the rhino/rock in the background.Then a herd of something,which made us wish the animals came with signs saying "I am a ..." but anyway we selected the 2nd winner.Then we saw a cobra which looked ready to attack so we selected the 3rd winner.The cobra turned out to be a "No Entry" sign which had blown sideways from the wind.Then we saw a lonely and random woodpecker which we assumed was looking for wood to peck.So we selected winner no 4.Then we were running out of battery on the camera(my camcorder battery was dead-so much for being organised this time) so we saw a tiny aeroplane in the distance and selected the 5th and final winner.The aeroplane could have been a big eagle.And there was a lot of giggling going on because we got lost!!!
So here are the 5 lucky winners:
