Admittedly, I love this shot. Not sure why exactly, lol, but there is just something about it that pulls me in. It was taken during one of my trips to a zoo in Michigan that was near my house. This particular fellow was a very friendly black llama. He was so adorable and desperate for attention, at least that’s what it seemed like to me. Maybe that’s why this photo speaks to me, because he just acted like he was so lonely. Anytime anyone came near the pen he was right there, shoving his snout through the bars as far as he could. The zoo had several of those “candy” dispensers full of pellets that you could feed some of the animals with. If I’m not mistaken I spent every quarter I had on this llama.
This picture reminds me of the rabbits my family and I use to raise. It started out because we found an abandon burrow that had three or four babies in it. They were the cutest little things. So we took them in. What started as a rescue ended up being much larger than that. It was well worth it though. Even as adults rabbits are cute critters, with the softest tongues I have ever felt! I think at one point in time we had something like 15 bunnies. I do miss them. They were quite fun little pets to have around. 🙂
Hehe, I just love this picture. It’s kind of a tradition in my family that if you get a present with a bow on it, you are to promptly stick that bow on your head when you open your present. In the past, I have put it on my pets’ heads. Who hasn’t? Be honest. 😉 Although my pets didn’t react quite like this. They were equally funny about it, at least I think so. They had the effect of backing up, as if the action was going to somehow dislodge the bow. Or they would paw at it, which worked well for them, but usually cut short my fun. 😛 Still, I think if my pets had looked like this, I would of had a stash of bows hidden year ’round for inciting this reaction at random points in time. 😀
This picture was taken by Arthur Morris and is absolutely stunning! I’m not normally one for the colour white, but this just strikes me every time I see it. I think the stark contrast of the green is what really makes this picture. These are a pair of gannets who were building their nest. The male is passing material to the female. It’s so simplistic, yet so moving too. I may have to put this up as my desktop wallpaper for a while. 😉
Does this look at all comfy to you? It doesn’t to me. I like sharks, and have always been a kid at heart, so I like the whole cool bed thing. This however, just looks off to me. I think it’s more the man in the mouth than anything. I mean sure, being eaten by a shark would never be pleasant, but still. I think they probably should have gotten a kid to do the photo shoot. Maybe they could have made it look fun rather than actually being eaten in your sleep.
Okay, now I like rats, and mice, and well any animal really, but this is a little creepy to me. They just look too… dead. They’re not cute, all be it they are fuzzy, but something about sticking my feet into the backs of decaying corpses doesn’t sound all that appealing. Nor does it look appealing in this picture. This whole photo just looks gross to me, and trust me I have a very strong stomach. I don’t throw the “eww” factor around lightly, but in this case I feel it is a must. I guess shoving my feet into the cut open backs of cute, fuzzy and still alive slippers is somehow better than these ones.
If you own a cat, or have ever owned a cat, you know exactly how this feels. That is if you let the cat sleep with you to begin with. All of my cats have done this to me on countless occasions. If it wasn’t at the head of the bed, it was at the foot of it. Or beside me. Or sometimes on top of me. There were moments when I would force the cat to lay down. It worked, for about five minutes. I think it only worked that long because the cat thought it was going to get petted. I’ve even had them do this for so long that I have actually shut the cat out of my bedroom. Of course that only led to them crying and pawing at the door to be let back in. In other words people, never forget that your cat rules your roost, even while you are firmly planted in it. 😉
This happens all the time! I swear it’s all a conspiracy. There is CIA evidence that dogs have a similar plot. Every time you try to step over them they stand up. I suspect that the whole “Cat Dog” wars are simply a cover up. They are really trying to take over the world. Investigations into parrots, ferrets, and fish are currently underway and can not be commented on at this time.
This is my entry into the Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond.
This photo was taken on Mackinac Island, in Michigan, USA. Mackinac Island has always been, and probably always will be, one of my favorite places on earth. The whole atmosphere there is like nowhere else that I’ve been.
