Yes, I was visiting the Wildlife Sanctuary again. I stayed 'til close to sundown waiting for the wolves to come out of their dens. --It was a hot afternoon and that lion sleeping in the shade under one of the structures in their pasture just made me laugh. He moved once, to bring his front paws together (when I got the snap)and then just let his feet fall apart again sleeping unperturbed looking dead to the world. It was cooler when these beautiful creatures came out.

I saw this sculpture in the grounds of Eton College recently. I'm sure it is Perseus holding aloft the head of Medusa, but was curious about the inscription on the base, which reads 'XAIPETE NENIKHKAMEN', so posted a question in Ask Funtrivia. thanks to Layla141, who informs me it is phonetic Greek, meaning 'Rejoice, we have won'

Yes, that's it! Thanks Verbonica.
I see one of its names is 'Poor Man's Orchid' and I had actually said to someone it looked a bit like an orchid. On checking further it seems it is a nuisance and invasive , but it's not that common where I live.
