We have a few readers in the Far East so we decided to dedicate this week's Camera Critters to them. 2009 will be the year of the OX, we wanted to post a photo of some Heilan Coos (Highland Cattle) but after a 3hr round trip through Scottish farmland today we still didn't manage so it will just have to be an Aberdeen Angus! To those of you who will be celebrating over the next couple of weeks.....Kong Hay Fat Choi!! Or is it Kiong Hee Huat Tsai!! (hope that's right!) Either way, Happy Chinese New Year to you, may the coming year be a happy, healthy and prosperous one!
Today has been an eventful day....up at the crack of dawn to drive to Inverurie (just outside Aberdeen) for the Bon-Accord open show. No photos from the show as I was in the ring but on our trip we saw....
.....the most beautiful sunrise....
....some gorgeous scenery....
....a fox...well, two actually but the other was in the next field and even further away (camera- zoom in, damn you!) Release the Hounds? Tempting, but no!
....someone had stolen Dad's DB9 (lol, dream on Mum!)
....a cool rainbow cloud...not sure if this counts as a sundog?
....a helicopter flying low (wonder if it was anything to do with today's avalanche in Glencoe?)*
....and Alfie winning Best of Breed again, yippee! Well done Alf, only 2 more points to go my boy!
*Edit: I don't think the chopper photographed was involved in the Glencoe rescue operation. I have just read on AOL News that three people have died in this terrible tragedy today, our thoughts and prayers go to their families.
