    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.

    This is going to be soooooo difficult.

    A idea would be useful, let alone a photo!

    Congratulations on winning, alchemist!:) Interesting theme, and I'm going to try my best to enter this month.

    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?"
