Ok thats the moan out of the way. lets get back to the other kind of bugs and wildlife.
One more thing My wife has made a complaint, " oh no" the photo comments should be under the Photo. and as her wish is my command I shall be doing so in future.
so photo first then the story.
The only other passenger to use the upper deck on the Nile ferry today. I guess he was kind of nervious as to the water worthyness of this vessel as he sat in the bouy all the way accross the river.
and here is a link to that story with photos of the construction http://nilelife2.blogspot.com/2010/08/new-promenade-in-luxor.html
This is the area where I saw all the dragonflies 2 days ago its Ramadan and its very hot so a good excuse for a drink is a dip in the Nile, Ooh" a bit of water went in my mouth.
Next shots are from the blog 2 days ago
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.
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.
and this rather good shot of todays sunset seeing its got 3 Great white Egrets in it.
