Strange things seen on a ride.

...I saw a gaggle (maybe a herd?) of Emus and the obligatory fleet of Llama on my ride today (you may notice collective nouns is not my forte), but the lingertree is quite special.

Complicating matters since 1965

Next time it happens you can point with authority and say "Look, a mob of Emus!!", and it's a herd of Llamas should you care to know, although it's a flock of Alpaca (the two members of the camelid family are easily confused from a distance at 18mph), and it's a flock of Camels too, which I saw on the Quantocks once.

I can say with some authority on the matter, that a collection of them is definitely a 'flap' of knickers.

Some of those are a little too, erm......, stiff to do much flapping

But is that a "spread" of tights there?

I thought not.
