I’m using this opportunity…
…to share a few animal photos. Actually, when I saw that Mandy’s  (a Sorta Fairytale) photo challenge this week was “snoozing,” I could only think of one photo (outside of the one that my husband caught of me and Kitty Paw last night).

This summer we visited the North Carolina Zoo. It was HOT! Many of the animals were resting due to the heat, but I went to great lengths to capture the lion taking a snooze. You see, he was laying right up against the wall of his space…so, I had to lean over the wall in order to get this photo. I think another tourist actually laughed at me as I hung on for dear life.

Since I’m already at the zoo (mentally, not physically)…and since Photo Freak’s challenge this week is “ANIMALS,” I thought I’d share a few of my photos from the zoo that haven’t previously been shared. I was able to get pretty close to this elephant…

…but not so close that I could smell him! And there there was this cute little turtle. It looks as if it’s trying to find the light. I also love that you can see it’s little reflection.

Don’t leave just yet…I just decided to align the next few photos with the Alphabet Shoot Challenge. This week is sponsored by the letter “D.” You may be wondering what this gorilla has to do with the letter D.

Actually, this is pretty gross…but D is for doo-doo (who knew that I’d be writing about doo-doo tonight…I sure didn’t).

D is also for DUCK! This might actually be a goose, but tonight, it’s a duck.

And D is for dog.
