Yip, I know... my image host has screwn it once again. :sniper:
There used to be other cam shots before. :wall: :wall: :wall:

Yep.
The problem is that you are using www.pepperpics.org. They have a very easy system to grab the url of the webcamshots, but an even easier system of naming them, and that's where it goes AWOL.
Have a look at the links you posted:
Code:
[img]http://www.pepperpics.org/i/nossobnun.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.pepperpics.org/i/nossob2qiq.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.pepperpics.org/i/nossob3txt.jpg[/img]

If you look at the last three letters before the .jpg you'll see that they are a simple AbA number. So very few photos can be uploaded until it overwrites previous ones. (And remember that the results are not only posted on this forum, but worldwide!

So the best thing to do is save the pic, rename it, and then upload it. Like lionspoona123.jpg which will become lionspoona123aba.jpg on that side. And you can simply go 124, 125, 126 etc.

Thanks, DQ! :k
Your explanation finally makes me understand why that overwriting happened all the time. :thumbs_up:

WoW Mel! It looks like a Caracal. Nice to see the ducks in the water just like earlier when the BBJ passed.

I'd agree Mel... caracal :clap: :clap:

The hind quarters on the 2nd pic seems to me to be the real confirmation... nothing else really looks like that :thumbs_up:

:big_eyes: Caracal indeed! What a sighting. And no anne-marie, they have been spotted before, albeit not very often.
