Setting my camera up for another spectacular sunset, I noticed that a top piece of our Mopane Tree didn’t have any leaves. On the ground below this area were the droppings of a creature, giving away its presence and signifying the beginning of a time of the year that Africa waits for. Food has arrived.
Every year at this time the Mopane Tree comes to life with hundreds of caterpillars, better known as the MOPANE WORM.
These are eaten by many by either just picking them off the bush and throwing them in the mouth, or squashing out their insides and the placing them on a stick into a fire or frying them.
In their gratitude I just hope they don’t invite us for dinner.
