In Poland, Hili doesn’t want to work in the orchard:

Hili: There is something over there.
A: Come, we will pick the last apple from the apple tree.
Hili: Tam coś jest.
Ja: Chodź zerwiemy ostatnie jabłka z jabłonki.


At Marsh Farm, there is a fabulous sunrise for the animals coming out of the barn:

The sheep at the farm got a special treat this morning – sugar beet! Poor Midnight the  sheep has frost on his back:

Random tweets from my feed:

And a whole bundle of tweets from Heather Hastie:

If this doesn’t move people, there’s something wrong with them.


And Jerry thinks I spoil Reilly!

Never look away from a predator …

Makes me feel sorry for the chimp – all these people goggling at him at a time he clearly wants to be left alone.

Get your head around this:


Finally, medieval artists may not have been able to paint cats, but modern artists sure can:

Have a good weekend!

  1. 16-28C ~ 28-50F. Seems a bit much.

    Average low temperature at Resolute NU for November 9 ~ -10F. This morning -14F.

    1. Seems a bit out of context. Best I can see it is sourced from a twitter comment from someone debating climate science deniers, but provides no source for the 3 Myrs claim.

  2. Manta rays seem to be swirling around a fish ball or cloud of krill. Drones are amazing tools for getting this kind of imagery.

    1. Caracals (rooikat = red cat, apparently the word ‘Caracal’ comes from Turkish, meaning black ear) are sadly still seen as vermin by many livestock farmers here. They are trapped (gin traps are illegal in Western Cape), hunted with d*gs, shot at sight or even poisoned.
      As a result they have become very shy, and are not often seen.
      Conservation organisations are putting great efforts in devising methods preventing livestock predation that are non-lethal. An uphill battle, but some livestock farmers start getting on board.

  3. I’m really enjoying the Caenhill CC Rush Hour posts! I hope Jerry decides to continue them when he returns.
