    Re: Photo Assignment : Animals

    It's still wet here in England. April showers have turned into May showers.

    Even the pigeons are fed up.

    Horribly noisy pictures at the end of the range of the zoom, with very little light and an idiot photographer who had accidentally turned vibration reduction off - but you get the idea. I think they may need the same psychiatric help as my Dutch heron!

      Oh well, at least the weather has improved a little. Fluffy white clouds, some blue sky, temperatures in double digits and a nice cold breeze around the tiny bit of flesh that has been exposed!!

      The canal was like a nursery today - baby birdies everywhere - and lets face it if there's one thing this thread is short of it's aquatic birds!!

                  Two more for the 'duck' thread. Up at the canal the chicks and goslings are growing up, so the adults were sunbathing - and scratching.

                    Mrs PoloUK's birthday today, so a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park. Pleasant place - huge amount of space for people and animals - and the MG Owner's Club rally too!!

                    The new Giraffe enclosure is fantastic, with a raised walkway so that you can see these stunning animals at eye-level. To be honest they seemed to be enjoying that as much as the visitors.



                    When the keeper arrived with some fresh foliage they were more interested in dinner than us - although one of them sneaked a quick lick of the keeper's bald head!



                    At the other end of the scale, the smaller things with the snazzy jackets were enjoying the beautiful flowers that abound throughout the park.



                    And there were some birds too, like this one who was making his views known!



                    And we can't go for a whole post in this thread without a duck too often can we?

                    Cheers,

                    Mark.

                      The giraffes are so gracious and so-prehistorical... beautiful animals that we, as humans, are about to run to extinction...

                      What a shame that people still kill these for whatever reason....
