That is a cracker UP. My photography day are on hold due to stolen camera, again. Three stolen now. Will go through the archives.

Jeezzz, hippos in the backyard! :YMPRAY:

How come I've missed the wonderful thread up to now?
Must take another try with pics myself. Somehow I've got all thumbs for that activity.

Found these two Perons Tree Frogs in my wood rack this morning, after about 5-10mm of rain last night. (The first in at least a month.)

There are some great photos in this article; https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... sight.html :)

But I did have to laugh at the description of the antelope 'hiding up a tree' =))

In defense of the Daily Wail I suspect that the caption was just badly worded. :D Just blame the spell and grammar checkers' ;)))

yeah, the 'body of the impala defending itself'... https://www.catersnews.com/stories/anim ... from-tree/

Even if they could climb trees, this upside-down defence would be a tad too extreme?

Little Brother has just been to India to visit a Tiger sanctuary.
The guide told him to be prepared to be disappointed.
