Crikey. I had to google search, but I was right. The 4 young orangs bear a striking resemblance to the branch manager and arithmetic star Kez. Look at the pic on the wiki page. Its like she has 4 doppelgangers.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kezia_Dugdale_MSP_Scottish_Parliament.jpgSaor Alba
How dare you sir/madam!! Comparing those adorable orangs to, to Labourites. Orangs are beautiful, highly intelligent and gentle creatures. Whereas Kezia is well Kezia.
Ha ha... What PP said!!!
I'm going to go for the snowdrops as Gerry's contribution. What do I get? A Munguin picture, that cheque/Czek you keep promising me in the post? I do love the chimp and his pet kitty! And as for the baby polar bear! But of course the uber cute 4 orangs who bear NO resemblance to politicians are the winner of this week's cutest.
Nope. Although it is an excellent guess!!!!Has the Czech not arrived yet... You'll know when he does. He's called Stanislav.I dunno, huh. Privatisation!
My favorite is the misty trees, beautifully framed.
It's an absolute beauty. So atmospheric.
Yes, the mist in the trees is absolutely stunning. I a m green with envy!
...with envy?Oh OK.
Why do fish never get any votes?
That's a good question. Some of them are absolutely beautiful...I guess you can't imagine cuddling a fish....
No, but you can coddle them, tastey.
Boom boom... what a wit!
All lovely. The12th picture is quite stunning.
That one is in Colorado, Marcia.The wild flowers are amazing.Would that be the Rockies?
Lovely indeed! Not sure of the spot in Colorado, but if it's in Colorado, it's the Rockies for sure. The Rocky Mountains (and variously named sub ranges) span three thousand miles from New Mexico to northern British Columbia in Canada........through the western half of Colorado.....where they reach their maximum altitude of 14,440 ft.....Wiki tells me. ;-))
Were it not for Wiki, most of us would have to spend our lives in libraries.A mate of mine had to go do some work in Colorado, and was advised to arrive a few days early so as to get accustomed to the air... It was good advice. He was as sick as a pig who'd just seen a Tory in a Bullingdon suit, at least for the first few days, and was glad to get out of the place.
Love the "sick as a pig" analogy. ;-)) Acclimation to the altitude is a real issue for a lowlander doing work or sports in Colorado, where even the capital city of Denver on the edge of the high plains is over 5,000 ft, and much of Colorado is uphill from there. I was driving west of Denver on the major "Interstate" highway across the state, and turned off at a scenic overlook near the Eisenhower tunnel at 11,000 ft at Loveland Pass. I just walked briskly across the gentle upward slope of the parking lot and was suddenly breathing so hard it was scary. Coloradans seem to take the lack of air in stride though. They have to rescue the people from Missouri who drive to Colorado in about 12 hours......up to the 10,000 ft ski runs at Vail or Aspen.......and then sometimes faint from oxygen deprivation. (Happened to a friend of mine....LOL.)
I think it was Denver my friend was in... and that's not really that high.But yes, people must develop resistance to the lack of oxygen, if they go about normal life while us lowlanders are struggling.
Picture six. The dog,the kitten,the wee mouse, and...the cyclopian martian at the back?
That's the kind of household I could live in...where the dog, cat and mouse are all mates....
I loved them all and I too thought that Gerry had contributed the lovely snowdrop, so I am going with the relaxing kitty. I too would be more relaxed if my Dug would actually like anything, he and I had one bad night last night. I may have had no Halloween visitors but the trickster was living with me. If I was out with his Lordship once last night it became six times before I left him and went to my bed. Needless to say he is now stretched out sleeping like we were actually friends. So I loved the one of the Goldie, kitten and mouse living together so happily.
Ah the joys of being owned by an animal!!
Oh and Yeah... you're right about Gerry's pic :>)
How could I be so wrong of course it is Lily of the Valley, used to have some in the garden back some time ago.
Wish I could get it to grow and flower... but I can't!
Tris......I eagerly awaited today's pictures with the promised American entries. What a magnificent animal is the American Bison, and is there anything in the world cuter than a rattlesnake at very close distance? Never try to pet a rattlesnake though. Probably good advice for the Bison for that matter......LOL. Thanks Tris!
Pleasure Danny.I was just thinking how cuddly that Bison was... Not so sure about getting up close and friendly with a rattler though.Just as well mr Cameron is an Englishman and that in his college days a pig was the first animal to hand.Imagine if he'd been from Nevada... or some such place adn all they could find for initiation ceremonies was one of these beauties!.
A Bison might well seem cuddly compared to a rattler. I'm still cringing from the idea of that substitute for Cameron's initiation ceremony......LOL.
Yep, everything's comparative, Danny.:¬)
I am a complete suck for baby elephants.It is a largely unknown fact that animals tend to scale off their available land area. Here is one:Palaeoloxodon mnaidriensisI quite like the idea of having one of them as a pet.
Well, I'd love an elephant for a pet. Just not sure what the downstairs neighbours would think!Love that name though... although I'll never pronounce it!
