Shongololo – [Millipede]




Wikipedia Definition: shongololo – millipede (from Zulu and Xhosaukushonga, to roll up)

Long since gone, this shongololo (I almost forgot the word “millipede”; I have clearly been in South Africa too long!!) shell has been bleached by the sun.

I remember it being such a windy day, that photographing flowers was proving disastrous. At least this was staying still enough for long enough, before the wind whipped it way and out of sight.

    1. Thanks Meanderer – simple stuff works best for me… rocks, bugs and a bit of lichen thrown in for good measure!

Been there? Done that? Seen it? tell!
