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

The problem is that you are using 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: Select all




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.
Not posting much here anymore, but the photo's you can follow here There is plenty there.

Feel free to use any of these additional letters to correct the spelling of words found in the above post: a-e-t-n-d-i-o-s-m-l-u-y-h-c

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:
