    Wow...the color matches perfectly with the subway car posts. Amazing. It's like it a chameleon that just blended right into the environment! Nice!!

    Some interesting/fun pics posted here. Here is mine. First test ride of my M2L-X after I added lightweight e-assist.



    May only be a two speed but scooted up this hill (Av. Gradient: 4.4% Max Gradient: 7.1% Distance: 500m
    Gain: 22m) with the e-assist

    Carrymeobscuris ability to blend in with it's environment is thought to serve as a protective mechanism to camouflage it from predators... by assuming the colour of surrounding objects and using it's ability to mimic their shapes they are nearly invisible when they are still.

    Population numbers are difficult to estimate because the carrymeobscuris is such an elusive creature and very few of it's habits are known save for their attraction to dark tunnels and trains.

    The Raleigh Twenty (raleigh viginti conseres) was once a common sight across Europe and North America where they roamed in vast herds and although they were usually found in urban environments they have also been found in the countryside.

    They are a hardy and long lived species with reports of them reaching ages of 40 years being common, conservation measures have been able to preserve this once abundant species and captive populations appear to be remaining stable.

    conseres birdy urbana is a species that is being seen more and more and seems to prefer urban environments and it's main defense comes from it's agility and speed. It will also use surrounding materials like the traffic cone shown in this picture to break up it's line and make it less visible to predators.

    This was last year, but pretty cool backdrop.
    It was taken in the Angkor Wat area.

    Hahaha! Nice description... it sounds like the voice-over narrative that the announcer for the show "Folders in the Wild" would say.

    Maybe we can get Steve Zissou to produce and film the show "Folders in the Wild".... I'd pay good money to watch that!

    Many urban dwellers may be unfamiliar with Itinerantur Fridayus as it normally ranges far from urban centres and civilization. Although it sometimes gathers into larger herds it normally travels alone or in smaller groups and like a camel, is able to carry large stores to sustain it over lengthy journeys where resources may be scarce.

    A captive breeding and adoption program in the Pacific Northwest has ensured the survival of the species.

    Love the photos, the humor and matching of colors.

    People reading my blog already seen my folder sleeping in a tent and surfing the pacific. So I'll post a photo of the bike that started it all.

    This feral species is spotted from time to time in the Australian bush. A program of hunting and culling has ensured it does not become a pest.


    It tends to curl up when bedding down to sleep.

    Jur a fine looking Brompton species for sure. The markings and ability to blend into the background with that camouflage are impressive
