Concise colourful post to capture the variety of the animal kingdom in all it’s shapes and sizes. This must be phenomenal to experience wild nature close up, thank you for sharing it.
Nice set of pix. Do I need to comment on this be the verse too?
I’m sure you would be averse!

We are indeed, but animals we could certainly do without are many of the local homo-by-no-means-sapiens.
Picture One looks like three pond-dwelling stags out for stroll along the bottom. Only their antlers are showing. I wonder how they breathe.
You did well branching out with that explanation! Maybe they come up at various stag-es, and then go for a little Roe?
what a wonderful planet we share life with.
Places like this certainly do remind one of that!
Getting to see a new place where nature still holds sway through the window of your photos is a great way to start a Friday in the city.
Really handy having such a spot only 76 Km away from home, just over an hour’s travel.
This all looks like a fantasy movie. Horses and Ostrich side by side. Great pictures
That SHOULD be an ostrich, in this part of the world. I was startled to realise that the one with the horses is actually an ‘exotic’ emu.
Hey – if it’s an emu, that could be Texas. We have both, too! Oh, ok, you’ve got more …skunks and possum can’t match. Always love your world
Of course, your emus are bound to be bigger (I wonder if they bound better too?) because that’s the way Texas is.
Actually far too many of them end up running wild (and scaring drivers in rural areas and along highways). People think they can make big money raising emus, then reality sets in…and it’s born free time, the poor things!
What people do for emus meant!
Hmm, certain types of roadkill is legal to eat some places….
I thought people were mainly after that emu grease ointment for arthritis and assorted ailments. (Side note: Emus have the funniest feet)
Clever Tom with his reply
I look at pictures have to sigh
This skill is one I’ve never had
Even rhyme is pretty sad.
But every time you make a post
We see the world from where you live
and thank you for these joys you give.

They are amazing photos, aren’t they Elspeth?!
I am quite overwhelmed; I find
Your eulogy is far too kind!
Is it not a little giraffe bent into a strange shape-see the tail-just like Ma’s!
Giraffes are masters of disguise!
As I responded to Tom, it is a baby giraffe with neck bent, indeed.
Now then, Col, I ask of you,
About your photo number two
The one with the giraffe in the tree
Is that a second animal I can see?
Bottom right, ’tis definitely there…
Like a reindeer, but small and square.

Giraffe, a baby, that one, see?
Its head is hidden by that tree!
(The head you see the shoulder be.).
WP decided to post that pic in a small size, and nothing I can do will bring it up to the one I wanted. I had to do the posting in HTML anyway, as pictures wouldn’t show up on the posting page. Glitches!
Ah yes! I can see it now – thanks, Col!
Oh no… that sounds like the glitch (well, one of them!) I experienced the other week…
Very annoying indeed! With dogged persistence and lots of cussing, at last I have the post more or less the way I wanted it.
Persistence pays off!
I can see the baby giraffe clearly now. They are all fabulous photos Col.
The photos are actually mediocre because they make the animals seem far more distant than they were – but the spot is amazing!
