The Egg Carton Tank

Now this is what I call art:

‘Eggs for Soldiers’ is a family event held every year at the Clapham Common in London to raise money for Help for Heroes. It’s basically about the sale of khaki green boxes of eggs, with 15 pence from the sale of each box going to the charity that helps wounded servicemen returning from war. This year’s event on the 4th of March will have two great things to look forward to – a national egg and spoon race, and a life-size tank made of no less than 5,016 egg cartons.

The tank, a replica of The Challenger 2, was created by British sculptor Stuart Murdoch. Along with the 5,000 odd egg cartons, he also made use of over 10,000 nails, 26 liters of glue, 15 liters of paint, 80 sq. meters of steel and 5,013 staples in the creation of this epic tank.

I give you the nipple egg…straight out of the fridge this morning:

Orca on Takapuna Beach

An Orca previously stranded at Huia Beach was transported to Takapuna Beach to be released in calmer waters.

I guess it will have a long swim to get back with its rellies.

Oh no! I better hide

Apparently there is a Orca hunt on.

[quote]The great orca hunt is on.

Jean-Michel Cousteau is, like his late father Jacques-Yves Cousteau, an ocean explorer. He is in New Zealand this month to find and film orcas, or killer whales, using the experience and contacts of whale researcher Dr Ingrid Visser.

Orcas are the largest species of the oceanic dolphin family, and this is the time of year to spot them, said Dr Visser.

“Because it’s cold, they come in closer to shore to hunt rays for food.”

Dr Visser relies on the public to help spot orcas. “We have an 0800 number, and people just ring and let us know where they are.”[/quote]

This Orca is in Howick, looking forward to seeing y’all this morning with your cameras.

I had to post this for obvious reasons.

A pod of Orca have visited Wellington Harbour providing some spectacular views.
