I had that book!

Read it over and over again! :thumbsup:

I had it too. I even remember the name of the illustrator of the cover pic: D Nockels.

Common Ragwort. Attracts the caterpillars of the cinnabar moth, but I've yet to see any in this park.

A very delicate-looking Meadow Grass, possibly Rough Meadow Grass, with Common Rye Grass on the right. Grasses are a nightmare to identify.

Creeping Buttercup

Bloody hell! And it's only early July...


Beautiful photos again Gerst. :thumbsup:

A review of Jurassic World 2.

Oh dear! :pmsl:

Elephant seal met a White shark (in spoiler in case you are nervous) and had a very bad day.

Ouch! :thud:

You'd normally associate that sort of behaviour with an adolescent - if he's significantly older than that you have to wonder what's going on.

Sometimes, when one is searching images, a whole swathe of pictures appear and one has no control over which pictures are listed when doing any sort of search. For example, if one is interested in paridae, and therefore types in Great Tits into google images...

What else can you expect from someone who thinks Viz is the height of humour? And yes, he is significantly older than an adolescent.

Sleazy, self-centred and completely inappropriate - yet not at all unexpected :pukeup:

Creeping Thistle. Everything has something crawling on it at this time of year...

...or eating it: Cinnabar moth caterpillars on ragwort. These are the first I've seen in this park. This is what they'll become:

A Cinnabar moth. I haven't seen one of these yet.

It's nature - do people object when a seal tears apart an octopus or a smaller shark?

The point was to show just how devasting the mechanical damage is from a White shark bite - if they were interested in humans no beach would be safe.

We kill 100 million sharks every year - they kill 5 of us.

So who is the monster?

As for my troll/stalker wanker jumping on the bandwagon to have a go - fuck off out of my thread. :flog:

Oh piss off - as I have said it's a natural predation event which I put in spoilers so why fucking look if you were so offended?

If you want fluffy bunnies and ickle kittens start your own thread. :whogives:

I started it and post most of the stories - that's all I meant and you changed the title so yes it's clear to me.

The more people that post here the better - apart from the troll twat. :thumbsup:

I think a lot of people understand the power of a white shark and if they don't then they can find out for themselves.

If you get a kick out of viewing such things then ok but please keep them to yourself. This is a request, not a demand. Remember, this isn't your thread and you don't get to dictate the content.
