My friend Dave went to South Africa. He likes birds the way some people like yarn, if you know what I mean.
Some of my favourite colourways from his trip:
brown and black
And, some zebras' hind ends. If you look around, there are also giraffes and elephants and hippos and about a zillion other birds of all shapes and sizes. Makes my pictures of snow and half-knitted items look a bit dull, really...
ETA: Sunday, he clicked something crazy and deleted a bunch of pictures! Shame on him. His photostream is here.
ETA again: I think those links will work now. There are so many amazing pictures.... And then one gets distracted in Flickr and finds quilts somehow...
