I first joined the Friday Shoot Out team on 29 May last year. Another week and I would have made it to a whole year of not missing a single Shoot Out.
But I didn't quite make it.
This week's topic is A Trip to the Zoo. Our nearest zoo is a good three hour drive away, so a trip during the week was out of the question and I only have one archive photos to fall back on. And that's of two of my grandchildren visiting a zoo in Australia, hardly my town any more.
And I'm tired after a week of child minding duties, looking after my three grand-daughters. There were times during the week when I felt like I was head keeper at the zoo, overseeing pet feeding duties. Each afternoon the calves had to be fed hay, and the pigs, chooks, dogs, cats, birds and turtle had to receive their food. But somehow I don't think these farm and pet animals fall into the zoo category.
But I'm sure there are plenty of wonderful real zoo animal photos to be seen by just clicking here.
Oh, hold on a minute, what about some flying bears? (and there are rabbits in that cage, you just can't see them!)
To hell with it, I'm going to post!!
