I Spy with my Little Eye, Something beginning with O

This is a very easy O – but extra points and a cuddle from the Cheetahs if you know what sort of O it is…

and the answer isn’t ‘hungry’…

See It, Snap It, Love It – Animals

Animals are just a perfect theme for me.  I have hundreds of photos from the zoo and took a load more on Sunday ready for this and then the memory card snapped and all those pictures are lost *sobs*.  You’ll have to wait a little longer for the picture of the baby giraffe, the lynx kittens and an update on the cheetah cubs, instead I bring you the oriental short clawed otters.  I took these in August and they were squeaking for people to come and pay them some attention…

The otter with the stone is called Flash – he loves his stones.  Very much.  He will choose one and then carry it round, limping with it in one paw for the sympathy, he hugs it, he juggles it, he balances it, he puts it on his friends backs and then gets it back…

So instead of a single picture, here’s a little slideshow – I give you Flash… and his stone.

G’Day…Saturday Is Caption Day

The Australian Ladies Wheelchair Basketball team made it to the finals of the Paralympics.  I’d seen them play in the qualifiers and was back at the North Greenwich Arena (that’s the O2 or the Dome to you and me) for the medal matches.  They’d bought some supporters with them… what’s your caption?

 

Oh – they got the silver!

Now go and find out what else needs captioning over with Mammasaurus – I wonder if there’ll be anyone riding a stag this week??

I Spy with my Little Eye, Something beginning with N

 

I’ve been in a bit of an #ISpy dilemma with which photo to put up this week.  The manipulated and slightly tricky one or a photo that I love.  So I’ve gone for this one and put the other one over on my photo blog Just Photos By Me because it’s a photo that I’m proud of!

So what am I spying this week?

Friday Photo – Cake

I had a cake commission today *small fist pump*.  Not just a cake commission, a cake commission with the spec of “12 cupcakes, whatever you want, suitable for children”.  Cool.

So I made vanilla sponge cakes, took the core out and filled it with toffee sauce and then put a swirl of salted toffee buttercream on the top.  If you’d like the recipe, let me know and I’ll post up over on Bake Yummy.  The downside being that the cakes were in the oven by 8am as the children wanted porridge for breakfast and oddly enough needed to get to school.

What do you reckon..?
