Trees, and more trees

There are so many trees here at Thanda I decided to dedicate one drive each month to photographing them. Here are my efforts. Clicking on a photo brings it up full size.

Below is the fever tree.  It has the most beautiful pale green bark and really stand out from the others. It’s called a fever tree because the early settlers chose to live in an area that was swampy and had water for their cattle.  Unfortunately many of the animals and people became sick and the settlers thought it was the trees that caused it.  Little did they know that it was actually because of the water – it was a good breeding ground for mosquitoes 😦
