Mrs. Nesbitt’s ABC-Wednesday 

Round 20-H
My 132th entry – bijdrage
Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is H and I’ve chosen for the word Hyena

The Hyena is one of my favorite wild animals. Although they are not particularly pretty they have that specific ‘something’ that appeals to me. This one I photographed some time ago and her snout is damaged so another word that suits today is hurt. I don’t know what has happened but I felt sorry for her. I couldn’t find a caretaker to ask so what went wrong will stay a mystery. 

Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~

  1. nee deze dieren verdienen niet een mooi zijn prijs , maar het zijn nuttige dieren
    en hebben een sterke familie band
    deze zal wat gestoeid hebben met z’n broertje denk ik , zal vast wel alweer beter zijn

      Klopt… en toch hè, als je even de tijd neemt als je dicht bij ze staat…dan zie je hoe mooi hun vacht is en hoe verschillend elk dier is… en als je mazzel hebt (wat ik ooit wel had) en je ziet een paartje met jonkies, dan is het zo intens genieten en ontroerend.

      Dat hoop ik wel ja. Zij zit in Blijdorp en toen ik er in Januari was heb ik haar helaas niet gezien, hopelijk zat ze gewoon onderdak… wederom geen verzorger/vrijwilliger in de buurt om na te vragen… vind ik toch wel een gemis in veel dierentuinen moet ik zeggen.

      1. dat is zeker een gemis , er zou toch iemand bereikbaar moeten zijn , vast en zeker weg bezuinigd 🙁

        ze zijn ook wel mooi , denk dat het rare loopje minder aantrekkelijk is als zeg de
        Leeuw of Tijger , zag een paar pracht series met ook hen in de hoofdrol en inderdaad het kan ontroerend zijn

        1. Melody says:

          ja ben ik ook bang voor, gelukkig is dat in ‘mijn’ dierentuin niet zo

          ja klopt… maar hun anatomie is doelbewust zo ontstaan en voor hen en hun taak is het perfect

          1. wees blij met jouw tijn 🙂
            ja zo heeft ieder dier wat het nodig heeft , zelfs het meest grote beest , de mens
            ik ga zo lekker bankhangen
            fijne avond en oant moarn

            1. Melody says:

              ben ik ook, heel erg blij zelfs, is de mooiste dierentuin, wat mij betreft althans, in Nederland

              Hangze maar behoudt lucht aub


              1. lucht behouden hihi
                van de vele dierentuinen die er zijn is de jouwe de mooiste , laat me raden ” Emmen ”
                ik sluit af , slaap zacht

                1. Melody says:

                  ja natuurlijk anders krijg je het wel heel snel heel erg benauwd… en dat zou ik niet fijn vinden.

                  tuulk, welke anders 😉 Ken je me al zo goed?

                  trusstttttt stuur Klaas Vaak ff naar mij als hij bij jou klaar is aub?

                  1. te laat , zou Klaas sturen , was hij al weer weg

                    ik weet wat benauwd zijn is hoor , waren mensen om me heen die er bang van werden 🙂

                    leek mij omdat die het dichts bij is ook wel handig 🙂

                    1. Melody says:

                      ach ja t’ is een snelle jelle hè , geeft niets hoor.

                      Eh ja nou eh ik ook wel een beetje, vroeger had ik veelvuldig bronchitis en heb een aantal keren longontstekingen gehad… maar ja als roker klaag ik natuurlijk niet… gelukkig heeft zangles en muziekles me altijd wel goed ‘ lucht-ruimte’ gegeven.

                      je hebt gelijk hoor 😉

  2. You are a true animal lover, Melody! Salutes!!

    1. Melody says:

      😉 Indeed I am Amit… not that strange if one is hurt by people to often and never by animals. Animals are pure, they don’t hurt people for pleasure or bad mood

  3. when i was about 12 i used to laugh so hysterically that my friends called me the “laughing hyena”

    1. Melody says:

      😉 That must have sounded wonderful 😉

  4. lesliebc says:

    That’s a great photo, Melody. I bet it was in a fight sometime in the past and it didn’t heal properly. But that gives it a distinctive look. By the way, I absolutely adore your new look on the blog…my favourite colour and all! Simply stunning!

    1. Melody says:

      Thank you Leslie.

      I have guessed some scenario’s as well as to how it happened.

      Thank you … its my favorite color to, my livingroom is 95% purple and white. Other colors are green from plants, black from the tv, and (helas) still red, the couches. As soon as we have the money we need, we will buy purple couches to.

    Poor Hyena, doesn’t look like he’s got a lot to laugh about just
    now, I heard the adage of ‘Splitting your sides laughing’ but
    never ‘splitting your nose’…
    He looks a very cuddly chap and such lovely markings, I hope
    to see more of your hyena friends in the future,
    Best regards,
    ABCW team.

    1. Melody says:

      Indeed Di, I thought so to.

      All the hyena’s have that certain behaviour sometimes which can be explained as cuddly but I don’t think it would be wise to come to close to them 😉

      I have lots of photo’s, so yes there probably will come more in due time

  6. I hope the poor hyena’s nose is soon healed. I cannot say they are my favourite animal, but probably have some nice attributes that I’m not aware of, having only seen them in a zoo.

    1. Melody says:

      Thats my hope too Hildred, I was there early january, but did not see her, so I don’t know..

      If you see them again, take a second look… they are beautiful

  7. Carol carson says:

    Hello Melody! Thank you for always taking time to comment on my posts. I admire your commitment to the ABC meme! I like hyenas (and all animals) and thought this photo was very cute, but worry for his nose. It looks to me as if he could have used some stitches to hold that wound together. Perhaps you will visit again and let us know how he is doing. Until next week! 🙂

    1. Melody says:

      Hi Carol, you are welcome! Thank you!! I love to do it.

      I visited that same zoo early january but I did not see her, there was no caretaker around to ask so I don’t know but next time I will look again for her 😉

      Till next week. Take care!

  8. Roger Green says:

    and what a laugh!


    1. Melody says:

      That is one of the most appealing things about hyena’s… they have extra cute faces when they smile from ear to ear

  9. Feel so bad for they hyena ~ snout is so sensitive on animals ~ great photo ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a peaceful week ~ ^_^

    ps. not able to link to ABC ~ get message that ‘amazon internet is down’ ~ other people are having trouble also ~

    1. Melody says:

      i did to at that moment Artmusedog & Carol. Indeed, I thought of that to.

      You are welcome, thank you.

      Yes I was aware of that , its fixed by now as far as I know

  10. Indrani says:

    Oh I too feel sorry for her. Haven’t been to a zoo for a long time now. 🙁 Happy ABCW!

    1. Melody says:

      I cam imagine Indrani… I visit zoo’s very regularly, at least once a month

      Thank you, likewise.

  11. Great photograph.

    1. Melody says:

      Thank you Rajesh

  12. Sure is a happy hyena!!

    1. Melody says:

      😉 Indeed does she look that way, doesn’t she?

  13. Hyena’s are normally pretty hper-active!!

    1. Melody says:

      Sometimes they are indeed… but I also see many times when they are very calm and peacefull/restfull

  14. Melody, intriguing choice. Thanks for sharing

    1. Melody says:

      Thank you Philosopherstone!

      You are welcome, thank you for visiting and commenting also.

  15. It looks a clean wound so hopefully OK. Hyenas would never win a beauty contest, although I always love their ears. Your photo makes it look as though it is waiting for a tummy tickle, and we know it will laugh:)

    1. Melody says:

      I think she is been well taken care of

      I agree 😉
      Thats what I thought too but I would not come to close to her, even if I could

  16. I love all of God’s creatures, but I’ve never been particularly attracted to Hyenas. However, I have to say I do feel sorry for this little girls hurt nose. Blessings!

    1. Melody says:

      Me 2 but there are some of which I am lesser fond 😉

      Thank you Arnoldo, likewise.

  17. LovelyGishi says:

    Awww, I feel so sorry for it :-(. But apart from the wounded nose, it is an adorable picture 🙂

    1. Melody says:

      Me2 LovelyGishi

      thank you

  18. They are not the prettiest critters in the world, but this picture is nice _

    1. Melody says:

      Indeed 😉

      Thank you Gattina.

  19. Poor creature looks like hurt puppy 🙁

    1. Melody says:

      Indeed she does ;-(

  20. Carin says:

    Is there something wrong with the Hyena’s nose?

    1. Carin says:

      Poor thing

      1. Melody says:

        indeed… but animals are strong m they heal quickly most of the times

    2. Melody says:


  21. That is a beautiful picture even though hyena’s are not beautiful looking. Nice choice for the letter H.

    1. Melody says:

      Thank you Suzy

  22. Poor cute baby. I hope it doesn’t hurt.

    1. Melody says:

      indeed… I guess it did at the time it happened but I trust its healed by now
