Mystery Photo #119

I was telling my blogging friend, TBM, yesterday how hard it is sometimes to think of  a mystery photo, and being the great friend that she is, she immediately sent this photo to me by email to use this week.  That’s what I love the most about blogging – how everyone jumps in to help each other without a moment’s hesitation.  Thanks TBM :).

What I like the most about this photo is that I can actually see colour.  Do you see it??? There is green grass in there, and I tell you I am starting to forget what that looks like. Two storm systems have come together overnight once again to wreak havoc on Southern Ontario, and as a result I didn’t sleep well at all :(.  It started out as a snowstorm, switched to freezing rain, and then the rest of the night was rain whipping against the house.  Plus our power get going on and off for a few hours.  My son’s bus is cancelled again, but unfortunately the highway will probably be fine and I will have to go to work.

I guess you’re wondering if I will ever post normal photos again and not just mystery photos.  Trust me, it is not for lack of photos – I have hundreds from as far back as a year ago that I haven’t shared with you yet.  However, between the exciting winter olympics that I have become slightly obsessed with (GO CANADA!!!!!) and beginning to plan a trip to London, Paris, and Edinburgh for my hubby and I for this summer, I just can’t seem to find enough hours in the day.  Don’t worry though, I will get back to regular posting one day.  You’re not getting rid of me that’s for sure.

Enough babbling.  Let’s get to work and see what you come up with this week.  Ok, ready, set, go…..

  1. Pretty pussy cat Panthera Leo

  2. how pretentious of me using the taxonomic/scientific/Latin name, I am such a nerd, but one doesn’t win the Zimbabwe National Wildlife Quiz 1993 without knowing this sort of thing, I also know the Latin names of Cheetah, Leopard, and many other random things.

    Have a fantabulous weekend people

  3. Is it a dog in the long grass?

  4. are you sure that is not TBM’s leg after not shaving for awhile? she is sunning herself in the long grass because she does not want anyone to know (btw–whose great idea was it in the first place that we have to shave our legs?)

    I think it’s a shape shifter!

  6. It’s a pretty messy drive out there that’s for sure. I’m actually yearning for some color out there as well Cindy. I think this is The back of a lion lying in tallgrass.

    It looks to me to be something the dog did and now I have to go and pick it up…. if its not a lion then I give up…

  8. Grrrrr!!! I’m so cranky today. Now the plow went by and there is a big pile of heavy, wet snow at the end of my driveway which would probably not be a good idea to drive through. It may even be big chunks of ice, so I guess I have to go and shovel. Keep on guessing while I dig myself out and get myself to work. See you in a bit :(.

    I am positive this is an old dog bone forgotten in the weeds!!! Talk about brilliant deductions. How wonderful that you are planning a trip “overseas!” I suppose that means we will not be meeting at the Pink Cadillac?

    Either a Canadian Panther or one of your larger Martian friends licking the grass. yeuch

  11. benzeknees says:

    I think it is some type of golden short-haired dog in the grass.

  12. benzeknees says:

    BTW, I love Fridays, specifically because of Mystery Photos! Don’t ever stop! When you get overseas, you can fool us with unfamiliar sights.

  13. grahamatlinc says:

    I meant it’s a huge Martian furry tongue. 🙂

  14. Good morning everyone. Well, we survived the latest storm, and even with 80 km/hr winds battering the house, I slept a lot better last night :). Now, as for the photo that TBM provided, it is a lion laying in the grass in Africa which a lot of you guessed correctly, but hopefully she will see this comment and provide us with details. Some people have wondered is it a lioness or a cub? Mr. Bunny Chow commented on my Facebook page that he thought it was a cub because he could see remnants of its spots. Can you please clarify for us TBM?

    • TBM says:

      Sorry it took me so long to stop by. My computer isn’t cooperating. Bunny is right, this lion was only six months old and I met her in Zambia where I did a walk with lions. It’s an organization that helps reintroduce lions into the wild and they have to go for walks twice a day and you can volunteer to go on walks with them. The reason people have to take them on walks is because lions can be quite lazy and if they don’t have to, they won’t walk.

  15. okay, where is that TBM when you need her–get out of the pubs and back online–we need more info!
