Fantastic Penners! I don't think I've seen a water vole before.


This horse from Turkey was announced the most beautiful horse in the world. If you can pronounce it its breed is a Akhal-Teke.

Beautiful.




The Panda Cam at Edinburgh Zoo is down at the moment - impending birth (possibly) and daddy Panda a bit off colour.

However, they've posted this video of them both. Great fun.

Penfold wrote:I haven't done too much in the way of photography lately but I did manage see a lot of water vole over in Arundel last week. The weather conditions were near perfect for them and at one point I could see five from my position on the river bank as they went about their business (mostly eating and fighting). Unfortunately, the pics I took of the fights didn't work out which was a pity since one of them involved a vole taking a bite out of a passing duck that got too close when it was swimming. :lol:

Tales from the Riverbank.

Come on, the coast is clear!

IT'S BLOODY WELL NOT, Y'KNOW!!!!!

Don't worry, this photographer's a wuss. I could 'ave 'im easy!

(I got too close to this one and my lens was unable to focus properly for many of the shots.)

OK. I'll ignore him then.

(These two had a few fights as the one on the right kept trying to steal the apple from the owner.)

The spoils of war.

nomnomnomnomnom........Watch what you eat.

(This was actually taken much later on a different part of the river. I was quite pleased with the reflection and the overall pic as the light conditions were quite poor at this point.)

And don't forget to eat your greens.

(Unfortunately, it doesn't show up too well on the screen but this one has a largish leaf hanging out the front of its mouth.)

Fortunately, there weren't too many people around and I was able to get quite close to them (about 3 feet at one point) before someone came along and scared them away.

And just to please the bird lovers;

Get my best side please.

This breed of horse has a natural metallic sheen to its coat, Mad.
Extraordinary isn't it?

Someones been crossbreeding cats and bunnies again. :lol:

And those are some shiny horses. Probably need sunglasses just to ride them.
