Order Order Order :rtm: You lot are worse than a bunch of animals (in one photo that is). From claiming that your breakfast has multi-species status to expecting the committee (of one :roll: ) to judge touching, French, alpha-similarly, microscopic, out of focus and sometimes dead animals. Let me remind you that we have staff shortages on this committee :slap:

Given that the treasurer has taken the funds, the secretary has walked off with the scribe and the other committee members have gone on holiday (permanently).......it leaves me to provide feedback. If the feedback offends you :hmz: :hmz: then you need a holiday in Kruger :wink:

Ok - once again: well done Shushin for leading the pack with your 6-species pic :clap:

anne-marie: :rtm: let me remind you that after the committee was taken aback by your lion-looking tree-stumps (evidence in spite) and your attempts at convincing us that leaves are butterflies - let alone your unknown birds...........you have now proceeded to assume that a mashed up catfish in a crocodile's mouth qualifies as a specimen. As if this was not enough, you laid claim to a fiver by making us dig for a magnifying glass. :hmz: :hmz: The committee pondered ruefully, but you redeemed yourself very well with your last fiver :dance: :clap: .

For those of you that are still on the sidelines (NetEk, Rooies, jacquiandphil and many other anonymous bystanders), lets see those images coming.

Blydeboer - thanks for the great pics of 4 species. And thanks for not hoodwinking the committee (like certain other people :naughty: ) by claiming the 1-pixel sized ox-pecker on your rhino and buffalo's back. For this you will be upgraded to a fair 5-species haul.

BluTuna - thanks for calling me a political: not sure if its a compliment :?

Bush Baptist - as I've said, the committee is not sure of how to deal with you. In French we could say "Il est impoli", but I am afraid the official language of the committee is Tibetan :wink: However, we would like to express our appreciation for you Heron-Hippo-Hammerkop pic, although some have questioned why the Heron and the Hamerkop are not also touching. Given that only Shushin has supported an Honorary Order for this pic, we will not be able to award this addendum to your order.
Just as we thought you were on the straight and narrow, your dead Springbok contravened the house rules (pg1) :sniper:

Hilda - well done on your fiver, but I think you've learnt some tricks from anne-marie on the Wildebeest claim :whistle:

Sparrow: thanks for the great pics. The 4 birds at the weir and the butterflies are really great :clap:

isinkwe: great to have you on board, but I need to remind you that we are a bunch of noble people. I am afraid you started well (albeit that you were off focus), but you breakfast pic put you into the naughty corner with anne-marie and BB. Fortunately well redeemed with some great pics after BluTuna set the rules straight.

Goronta - well done on posting the lazy trio (I can see someone sending a pic soon with a "sleeping" animal - in the jaws of a lion :roll: ).

As I have it, the updated orders stand as follows:

For 3 species: - Order of the Honey Badger
izinkwe
Goronta (the lazy three)
Sparrow
Bush Baptist (awaiting votes for Honnary Order)
Waterbuck
hilda
anne-marie
chirinda
saraf

For 4 species - Order of the Stripped Polecat
isinkwe
Blydeboer
Sparrow
Waterbuck (webcam)
hilda
anne-marie
saraf

For 5 species - Order of the African Wildcat
hilda
anne-marie
BluTuna

For 6 species - Order of the Wild Dog
Shushin

Until next time :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: Please keep them coming and please ignore the comments of the committee (of one :roll: )



As this is what should be done on receiving an award so here my acceptance speech :tongue:
Ohmygod!! :shock:

I can't believe this.

I mean, to win the Wild Dog Award for Best Picture(debatable) with 3 or more is an honor… but to win with my very first pic… when so many others with fantastic shots have tried. Wow…I must thank my amazing family. My SO, and I love you so much. I couldn't have done this without you, :tongue: I would also like to thank the committee (all 1 ) for all the support and hard work. :thumbs_up:

Well done to all the winners, :congrats: and all the rest. You guys are awesome. :k I have a pic of 5 animals, but I am having a hard time uploading it. :redface: I will ask Isinkwe very nicely to help a Newbie out.

I will keep you posted, and in the meantime, keep the witty photos and comments coming. I love it.
:thanx:
