Photo Competition - November 2014

Ranger Roo

Recommended Posts

Ooooh! How exciting - I won something! Thanks to Yetidave and Elyz for choosing my picture.


So, this month's theme is Animal Encounters

What animals have you come across whilst caching? Big or small, humble or exotic, fierce or friendly - lets see them all!


General rules are:


1) The photo must be cache related and to do with a specific cache in the UK - please include a link to the cache or the GC code so we can see where the picture relates to.


2) Maximum of two photos per caching team or cacher


3) The winner each month is decided by the winner from the previous month - the new winner starting the thread for the subsequent month. They may set a theme if they wish.


Good luck!

Ooooh oooh! This is my kind of thread! :D :D :D :D :D


1. This is an Orange Ladybird. They usually come with 14 or 16 spots and feed mainly on Sycamore trees, but have recently spread to Ash. I'm a bit of a nerd and hop over the the Wildlife Trust website when I've spotted animals on my geocaching walks. :lol:

I spotted this literally crawling over earthcache 'GC1TH55 - Rocking In The Big City #1' (which was my first earthcache and extremely interesting! I've never looked at a rock in awe before! :lol: )




2. These two horses were the only company I had for a few miles and hours during a walk around Godley at the now archived 'GC4P5AG - Running Late At Godley Hill', as you can see, the three of us got very very wet.

From the most northerly uk cache, on Shetland, Sexy Muckle Flugga. Amazing scenery with puffins walking right past your feet

This grouse followed me for about 30 minutes during a caching walk in Northumberland last year. It was just before Houx Hill cache and after I'd placed this cache (which has only 5 finds since Jan 2013 so far and none this year)

Thank you for all the amazing photos of our animal friends! They were all excellent and it is tough to pick a favorite...but in the end, I declare firestronaut with the soggy looking horses the winner for this month! :D

Didnt think I stood a chance with the other photos!
