EMBARRASSING Bodies

Unread postby Waterbuck » Mon Jan 27, 2014 11:09 pm

Hi Forumites :shock:
I feel like a new interesting thread (not that there isn't already many others). Not sure if this is going to work, but I have conjured up a thread titled "EMBARRASSING Bodies".........
Slow down all ye critics.........here is my plan:
This thread will be for photos of animals caught in an embarrassing position (stuck up a tree, slipping at a waterhole, biting off more than they can chew, with a rained out hairdo, with mud on their face etc etc etc) or for animals with a funny expression or with a particular body odyssey like a broken horn, an extra leg, a skew bill or a weird fur marking.
Straight off the bat I want to add that pictures of road kill and/or animals suffering are not called for as it will not be in the spirit of the thread (this is me trying to sound like a mod) :rtm:
I know there is a bum-shots thread, but I suppose those pics can be posted here also. I also don't mind pics of animals making bacon, but lets try and get some other interesting stuff also. But please keep it relevant to the parks and don't post a pic of your neighbor's pink poodle :slap:
I learnt the hard way that commenting on all posts on a thread that you start (see 3 species or more in one photograph thread) is a lot of work, so don't expect any ratification of material posted other than by comments (hopefully) from fellow forumites. Enjoy the threat and I hope it becomes popular.

Let me open the floor: Kruger impy with one horn:

Thanks Carol g and lion queen - was just worried that people may be offended. I removed the embarrassing monkey pic just in case and will reconsider posting it in future. Now then.......where are your photo's :popcorn:
