I was stunningly surprised and highly delighted when I turned my computer on this morning, to discover a User Award from my favourite Schoolmarm, Carol (Caziwinkles), for Lunch 34, The Kenya Rufous Sparrow, thank you very much, Carol. My sincere thanks to all who commented and voted, too. You really are lovely people..!

I trust everyone knows by now, that Nathan received a new Canon 50 mm f/1.8 from Santa? Nathan kindly pointed out that Lunch 34 would have made a far superior image, had he "got a lot closer in using concealment and stealth, then equipped with a Canon 50 mm f/1.8 carefully captured a beautiful image." Nathan, clearly I need some lessons from you. Let me have your bank details and I'll deposit your airfare costs and, say an extra 500 for expenses. Let me know when you are coming over and I'll send my driver to the airport
I am currently involved in a large project, building a stadium, in conjunction with KWS (Kenya Wildlife Service), inside Nairobi National Park. It's a 1,000 seater, half for Africans and half for Indians (they pay more, for better viewpoints). Filled to capacity, it should nett around quarter of a million per sitting. The advertising we are going to use, is the heading at the top, in bold. Translated, it means "Lion eats white man for Lunch".
Lions also know a great deal about "concealment and stealth", Nathan...
Appropriately, I am offering up an image of a Lioness who is removing the stomach of a Buffalo She and her pride had taken the Buffalo down, beside a water hole and had their fill of the warm, bloody meat. This Lioness was a bit of a 'piggy' and was thwarting the attempts of Hyena and Jackals to have their share. The meat that she could get to, had run out and so she thought that she would remove the stomach, full of putrid grass. The look on her face is priceless
Back to work for many, today. But, you were getting bored at home?
