Thank you all for your votes, comments and support for Lunch 35 - The Lioness & Buffalo. It may have puzzled some, as to why there was a comment about an Arum Lily - and some images loaded (now deleted) of an Arum Lily, as 'versions' of a Lioness eating a Buffalo?! Carol (Caziwinkles) has an image of said Lily uploaded to her portfolio, in which I can quite clearly see a couple of errant triangles - but she and a couple of others, could not. After some considerable 'digging', I think I have the answer, which you can view on Carol's upload
. If you use Internet Explorer, or your name is Rob, it's worth a look
Back to the matter in hand - 'Lunch'
Nathan (NDODS), was notably
in a rush yesterday. Maybe he was being chased by a Lion - or - late for a 'plane
Mick finally came up with a reasonable offer of 10,000 nuts and 10,000 bolts (all rusty, of course) for my moth ( Lunch 13
onwards - yes he does take his time, but I knew he wouldn't hold out on me forever
Keith (dark-lord) has volunteered for photography duties when my stadium is built (that's good, for I fear we may soon run out of Nathans).
Ed (Glostopcat), having lured Bunbeam back to EPZ with promises of membership
(?!), is now trying to palm her off on me (could come in handy, for I may soon run out of both Nathans and Keiths).
Alex (AlexAppleby) had the audacity to critique my image of the Lioness & The Buffalo. Kindly join the queue of Nathans, Keiths and Bunbeams, Alex. Rob (bobsblues) also has his card marked, due to the comment he left on Carol's Arum Lily - and will shortly be joining you.
I knew I could make this EPZ lark turn a profit
You all got way too exciteable about the sight of red meat and Lions yesterday, so, in an attempt to restore some order, today's offering is of a Red-bellied Coast Squirrel, photographed in Shimba Hills, which are 'behind' Mombasa, on the coast of Kenya. They are also found in South Africa (Red-bellied Coast Squirrels, not Shimba Hills). They live in trees and thickets, but can be found near habitation and will feed from the hand. They eat berries, seeds and nuts - also bread! A Red-bellied Coast Squirrel grows to around 9" (230mm) body length, with its tail the same again.
Versions 2 & 3 are 'happy snaps', so don't go getting carried away, Alex - they are just for fun, see
Have a Great Day, everyone!
