    A bull in a field!

    Er, a lion!

    A dude with the legs of a horse?


    Also, someone please change my egregious error in the actual photo thread. I noticed you copied my extra bits from last month, Al, and I spelt remember wrong...

    I was thinking rams, bulls, crabs, twins, scales, or even non-astrological objects (a couple of things come to mind, but i won't mention them).

    Oh, and the first definition of Zodiac I saw was "circle".

    Changed, Hoopy. Can't believe I missed that about 10 times.

    Perhaps a serial killer?

    This is going to be soooooo difficult.

    A idea would be useful, let alone a photo!

    I'm liking the theme. I'm guessing we can do the Chinese zodiac too? Dogs, rats, roosters and whatnot.

    That had come up in my research, Ms Mouse. I made it Zodiac rather than Signs of the Zodiac for just such interpretations.

    Awesome. I'll have a think for my second shot! I remembered my photos of the Astronomical clock in Prague and had to post one. (Took me ages to decide which one though!)

    I love that clock, Mouse - it's beautiful.

    Just posted my first entry. For a while, I wondered what I could do, and then I remembered that my Mum had a Capricorn charm on her old charm bracelet. I asked her if I could borrow it for the photo contest, and so that's my first entry. The actual pic is a bit small as I had to crop it - the chain itself was a bit blurry.

    It's amazing, Talysia, all the little statues on it move and there's another dial beneath that one which works as a calendar. Glad I got the chance to go and see it!

    There's one for me.
    I've learned two things. 1. Sheep have rectangular pupils. 2. Animals can have alternatives to the human red-eye reflex. It's because of something called a "tapetum". Cause of red eye
    I thought of editing them out, wasn't sure if it was allowed, then decided to leave it as it's coolly evil.

    Good pics so far, Talysia and Mouse. I must have seen that clock when I was there, but just don't remember it. Or else it was a long, long way away.

    Argh! Evil!

    And also hilarious. I find sheep do tend to stare at you like that. Planning...plotting...

    I had to close my photo upload place down, it was locking up and causing this ancient laptop to crash. Looking for a new site, lightweight. I think it's Java causes it to overload.

    I use photobucket. No idea how your counting machine will handle it, but no problems for me so far.

    Well now I've got my 75 word story entered for this month, I suppose I should give some attention to the March photo challenge...

    Okay, I know jellyfish are not actually fish, but they're called fish.

    Why do I get the feeling that mosaix's aquarius is being held for ransom?

    Heh, love the crab. I love animal expressions (all right, I imagined animal expressions).

    "Yeah? Can I help you?"
