Sorry, I don't get it? Please explain.

I thought Iznogud really meant "is-no-good", as in him/her being a naughty kitty.

I think Iznogoud is a cartoon character, maybe French. I suppose David means it translates into Polish ie the name is Niezgoda

Iznogoud is a French cartoon character, created by Goscinny (who also created the Asterix series). Lots of word play in both the names of the characters and their actions (Wikipedia article here). In Polish he was called Iznogud, I believe.

Love your water lily, sue! and Susie's definitely interested in something off to her left!

Today he was caught in the act of 'introducing' himself to our goldfish, I guess we'll have to cover the bowl for a while now!

That is a fabulous photo Toni, the sort of photo that goes viral on the internet as an amusing photo, and cute.

Haha I don't think Izzy will be going viral just yet, and I know for a fact that fishy is going into our bigger, *covered* aquarium as of this afternoon. Better safe than sorry!

I'd never heard of Iznogoud before but when I was 5 our cleaner was called Mrs Niezgoda, and a few years ago I decided to ask here what it meant (her husband was Polish) and it was no-goodnik, a troublemaker basically. Yours is just a variation on it.

These are the edge of the Cotswolds near Burford, between Oxford and Cheltenham. My little compact camera managed to freeze the movement and got 30 miles of the A40 between Oxford and Cheltenham firing off every minute or two. The new camera couldn't cope with the focus on a moving target but the old one is set to infinity.

Christinap, loooove that foal of yours!!! And yours too, ClaraSue!
Howie, that looks absolutely gorgeous!!!

From me today, a photo of a most unusual headstone in the graveyard of the church at La Couvertoirade. We visited this picturesque Knights Templar village/fortress in the Aveyron, Midi Pyrenées, south of France, just a few weeks ago, and this village totally charmed us with it's meandering streets, stone buildings and roof tiles and charming traditional workshops.

Here's another photo from my trip to the coast last month, on the steam train heading to
Kingswear from Paignton.

Onimisi: wow. And more wows. Just look at the colour of that sky. You need to show off here more often : )

Sue: While I liked the orangutans, the water lily was truly exquisite! I'd get that one enlarged/printed if I had taken it : )

Christina: my goodness, even the babies are HUGE lol.

Santana: Somehow I thought the short form for your new family member was going to be Izzy : ) By the way, does your camera have one of those cool features where you can choose only one colour (other than monochrome) to show up in the final product?

David: lovely garden pix as always!

Martin: would have been a PERFECT picture if you had gotten someone to push that other dude off the train (or at least stuff him in the WC) LOL

Back to the Akershus Castle and Fortress in Oslo, this time we have the school room. You wandered through this castle by yourself with headphones allowing an audio tour including ghost stories if you would like to hear them. Filled in the time well before I had board the ferry.

haha. We get a choice from some meat trays and grocery packs. We can get enough meat here so I usually take the groceries ... unless there is pork. We don't have pigs smile

Love the river shot, Ominisi! The colours are wonderful.
And I like the train pic too, Martin smile

Jakeroo & Copagu: Thanks, I will try my best to be around more often.
I got the yellow, blue & green colours by using a very high ISO setting and a mini tripod.

Please, can anyone explain the picture below to me? It is the midday sun(had to take it with a very low EV setting), but it is under a kind of atmospheric effect, that I do not understand. Eclipse?

It's an interesting effect for sure, the kind of thing you WOULD find during an eclipse. It's
almost like a circular rainbow around the sun. Was the sky cloudy at the time? If not then I'd
have to guess that the brightness fooled the electronics into producing that picture, much like
some of the photos I took of the moon with an older camera where the moon
appeared to be
square. (I'm pretty sure it isn't square.)

The guy on the train had the same idea as me - wait until it started going around a bend then
stick the camera out of the window for the shot and hope nothing had been placed too close to
the track (and that you didn't drop the camera!)

This is Torquay from across the harboUr:
