Large ants scurried underfoot in the Bushveld. Being part of the landscape, they were largely ignored.
They were largely ignored until I spotted this one from a distance carrying something large and white. Was that an egg? I bent down for a closer look.
The ‘egg’ had a stalk attached.
It was no egg, but what could it be? I looked around for similar objects and saw none until the following day when I happened upon a cluster of them lying on the ground.
The mystery was solved. These were fruits from the Karee trees that lined the dam.
