Ramadan is here again,

Will not make the slightest bit of difference to the wildlife they will do the same as they have done since time began and we  and our beliefs where not even thought of.  Like this little water buffalo cleaner
Gets to have its own flotsam  where it can eat all day thats as long as the flies are not observing  Ramadan.
ooh " there is a fly on my nose,    Ah" but Mrs donkey its Ramadan  I can not eat the fly, it will have too tickle you to death.
The little white egrets  still clearing the land of frogs and anything else thats edible.
The Squacco herron  in its natural habitat.

The chicken looks like its got a pair of long johns on 
This area was covered with hundreds of dragon flies some  on the donkey  droppings  but most on the sand just perched  and all had their tails sticking up it was another experiance I will never forget all these black winged  dragonflies  flying about my legs as I walked on the  sand. not sure what they get from the sand  as the Nile is  not salt water. its not fresh  or clean either.  I bloggerd the other day on the bees  taking whatever from the sand this same area.
The next few shots shows the sand littered with them.

This is the  same area  half an hour later as the boys  came for a swim  they take no notice of any of the wildlife. its like they share the beach area.
