The other day, my friend Ann, and I, took a trip to the zoo!
We wanted to play with our cameras a little bit, and the zoo is always a fun place to do that. (Of course, I've forgotten pretty much everything that we learned last year in our photography class, so, my camera pretty much stayed on the evil green box the whole time! GASP! SHUDDER!)
HEY! Don't judge me! At least I used manual focus! Which is why some of my pictures are blurry. LOL!
But, that counts for something! Right?
Anyway, moving on!
My absolute FAVORITE animals at the zoo, are the "big kitties."
I LOVE them! I want to hop into the cage, and cuddle with them.
I want to scratch behind their ears. (See! This one needs a little scratch!)
I want run my fingers through their manes.
And, give them raspberries on their tummies!
Even though, they would probably like to eat me for lunch, and are totally bored by my presence!
I cannot help it! I'm infatuated!
This guy stole my heart! And, I wanted to give him a big ole' nose rub!!
I would have spent the whole time in this area, but the cats had full bellies, and the sun was heating up, so they all found cool, shady spots, and decided it was nap time!
So, we wandered off to see what else we could snap pictures of.
I switched to shooting the trees, and flowers, because they were so pretty.
WARNING! Picture overload! Proceed with awe, and amazement!
But, PLEASE don't touch the butterflies!
But, don't worry! They are definitely enjoying that time! And, obviously, there will be more butterflies to see the next time we visit!
Move along kids!
There's nothing here to see!!!
