"How About You ...."

The iguana was very simple to photograph. He was so still. I am sure he knew that he looked magnificent.

I might be looking for a bit of inspiration for possible future knits?  (Actually I am in the middle of designing a little animal pattern, but not any of the ones pictured here.) 

We went on a trip earlier this week to Longleat Safari Park, which I think I enjoyed more than the kids. 

Of my numerous photos these were just a few of my favourites. 

I couldn't forget the meerkats.

The elegant giraffesl ...

King of the jungle turned towards me at just the right moment ...

.... and the majestic lioness

... we also caught a glimpse of the tigers

I didn't quite capture how cute the baby ring-tailed lemur was. I know he looks a bit crazy. They were having so much fun.

The Humbolt Penguins stood so still. They looked like they were enjoying the sunshine

The anteaters were my surprise favourites.


  1. I love the iguana best. So regal.

  2. I used to have an iguana named Clyde. I miss him :( I'd rub his head and he'd go to sleep. I love meerkats.

  3. What fun! I miss adventures like trips to zoos and wildlife parks.

  4. It's been a while since I've been to a wildlife park. My granddaughter would love seeing all the animals you featured, and so would I.

  5. Great photos. I always love the penguin.

  6. Lovely piccys and love the penguin x

  7. Trips to our local wildlife park is always on the top of our list of things to do each year. We've seen anteaters at our zoo. Fascinating creatures!

  8. What cute faces you captured! It's fun to see such a great variety of animals all together.
