新年快樂 Xīnnin kuil

To all my Chinese friends throughout the World... Happy New Year.

Being as this is the year of the Dragon... I though it best to introduce you to Frank, who's my house Dragon.

Here in the chair, asleep in front of the fire... he seems to do this an awful lot these days.

They do sleep a lot when well fed and warm.
They have an instinctiveness for camouflage as seen here.
Well photographed and a good New Year.

Lovely photograph of a rare creature, especially as their importation was forbidden many years ago.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Aye but I've found that they don't do well with surprise wake ups.

Thank you and aye but that may well be the case in Englandshire... no such ruling here in Scotland.
