Please, 'mites, don't delay too much with your answers for 2012 #11... It is the last one that I will be doing for a bit as I will be out of the reach of the webz for around three weeks. I will be posting the answers to this challenge before leaving for the next atlassing event in KNP's Mpongolo Wilderness. Afterward I will be spoiling myself birding in some remoter parts of South Africa where I have not been before... Hopefully I'll run into some (lots of) good photo opportunities to refresh my stock of challenges a bit...

BUT!!!

Don't dispair! I have arranged for the challenges to continue. Lizet will do the next two. I have not yet confirmed who will be doing the third one prior to my return, but rest assured, I will get another challenger to your skills! :thumbs_up:

The challenges continues! Please, 'mites, support the people who will be giving up hours of their very valuable time to set these challenges up for your enjoyment / benefit.

:rtm: BTW: I get a feedback note afterward and knows exactly who the fair-weather friends are... :twisted:

Etienne Hinrichsen will do #14. Please ensure that you guys and gals keep track of who is doing the challenges so that you PM the right person with your answers!

@ Davejenny....you stole my quote! :lol: :lol:

I got 9/11 and I am also sure that is the LBJs...will I EVER get them right?? :evil:

it is not about the score, it is about the fun we have while learning....right?? :whistle: :hmz: :lol:

Naaat, coz each time I think I have cracked the recognition of an LBJ, I get it wrong the next time, so it just goes to show how many are really lucky guesses. :tongue:

Family stuff is one of the few valid excuses. :thumbs_up:

Most important!
