Looking good!

How much control do you have yet over the look of the image gallaries?

Personally I've just gone for the bog standard but I think there are three main options and it is customisable *shudder* Since it took me ages just to work out how to link to the pic and post in my LJ I haven't done any more ... yet.

Since it is beta test I don't want to spend too much time on it asit might all disappear at any time :) I may have a play over the weekend if I have time.

Peace

Well I had to try it since you pointed me there the other day :)

The fox was sunning him/her self for a while in Mum's garden. I had about 10-12 times telephoto on the camera (but hand held so I'm surprised at the good quality of them) and was sitting at a window in the house. I've got quite a few pics but I think this is the best one.

I was thinking of putting the fox up as an icon ... in fact thinking about it I may have done so ... but one of my friends had her two pet rabbits killed by a fox recently (that's why the pic is behind a cut - so she doesn't have to see it).

I'd never heard of the binturong before, so had a quick look around ... the following quote, from http://www.rzu2u.com/binturong.htm had me giggling :)

Binturongs in captivity can be interesting animals. They are not suitable as house companions due to their size, poor toilet habits and odor. Binturongs secrete a musk that is reminiscent of popcorn or warm cornbread. Unless you want someone to think you live in a tortilla factory, you should reconsider having one in your home.

... and two new forms of bacteria were discovered as a result

That had me chucklling :) although not something I'd want to do myself. The web site I linked to described what I think they called the "duck leap", the way the bint's catch ducks by jumping on them, and commented that it could be quite painful having one them weighing 30-40 pounds leap on you.

And they're affectionate? Is this before or after they leap on you and start chewing? ;) Well rather you than me - maybe I'll come and take pics of you being savaged by one - for scientific research of course ;)
*ducks and runs*

Peace
