One of your best, Maestro.
Louis: Thank you Ray. A bit of a surprise that it is so high up in the ranks.
A nice shot, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Frank
Oh that's so great! Was there a Kalahari goat herder following behind?
Louis: No followers. Goats are quite independent. Thank you Elizabeth.

In their element. Presumably there was a shepherd somewhere?
Louis: No followers. Goats are quite independent, Chris.
Just out taking a stroll, I see, Louis?! smile
Louis: It was almost middle of they day, so I can think of no other purpose than the suggested stroll, Ginnie.
Someone knows where to get a drink.
Louis: They passed the pub a hundred meters ago, gutteridge.
Must be tough to survive here I guess Louis
Louis: It is tough, Bill.

They know where they are going and what they are after, Louis
Louis: They know, Lisl.
Time for a party! Let's find a drink.
Louis: They passed the pub a hundred meters ago, Mary.

Very evocative, gives a real sense of place.
Louis: Thank you blackdog. This is a place that I like to visit.
Quite a barren area they are walking through, is this the desert proper or part of the edges of it?
Louis: The Kalahari is classified as semi-desert, and this is somewhere in the middle of it, Brian.

This is a fabulous one from the Kalaharie... Is there enough food for them?? What is the temperature?
Louis: Thank you Astrid. Goats eat shrubs and what they can reach in trees and there is enough of that. The temp that day was 41°C.
A timeless scene!
Louis: It sure is, Tom.
this is a great photo Louis... the goats have to work hard to find a meal out there....petersmile
Louis: Thank you peter. All of a sudden, the word 'meal' sounds so formal. That then results in a mind picture of goats around a table ...
