Beauty under threat

■ “Few people realise how just how detrimental the drilling spillage in Jonkershoek is to the variety of aquatic life forms in the Eerste River. Take a moment to enjoy the perfect beauty of some of the dragonflies and a damselflies that need the pure waters of the mountain streams to lay their eggs and raise their larvae underwater,” says Corrie du Toit of Somerset West, who sent Bolander a series of beautiful photographs taken near the Eerste River in Jonkershoek Nature Reserve. Pictured is the Common Thorntail.
