A Poser.jpgHe's a right poser

I know I've posted a lot of this horny one lately but here's a photo of him without any interference from anything else. This was taken back in 2012 with the first outing of my  Canon 600D and 18-55 kit lens.

Hi, fellow gaffers, it's great to see already a few of you sharing your wonderful photos of your animals.Smiley Happy


@yvonnearmstrong Thanks As always Yvonne for the support you show and have shown in thes challenges.


I love hedgehogs and Benson is great and looks like he is enjoying his life in your garden. It's a shame you diden't get Hedges in the same photo, it surely would have been a family affair. Well doneSmiley Wink


@themrbarso What you like (lambert & butler) lol. Almost as bad as Laurel and HardySmiley LOL


Great to see the old deer you have posted up, he looks a little horny, but I would be more worried if he got the humpSmiley Tongue Nice to see you joking about and joining in again🤘


@nathgaff lovely to see your furry friend joining the party. He looks very chilled in you guitar bag, and it's almost like he's saying get away from me I want to rest. Thanks for getting and sharing your photo with us and he will be one of the gaffers favourites.👍🏻


@brulaw What you like adding your two photos in one post. But I suppose I shouldent have done it eitherSmiley LOL


But im allowed as I'm hosting this hahahaha.Smiley Surprised


Anyway Bruce I have seen that little puppy on giffgaff before, I remember you posting on another challenge last year, and you was cheeky then by posting it in the thread for something else, naughty, but not to worry as Tiga is so cute and I know he was a hit last year nice one. Smiley Happy


Well, well @markulous you really have done it haven't you by raising the stakes with the three wise geese. Absolutely love em and you've really started me off now? Lovely pic, well done aginSmiley Wink


So now I'm gonna give you three to match the stakes..Smiley LOLSmiley LOLSmiley LOL The three T.I.T.S.
