When we visited Detroit Zoo last week I discovered many treasured animals; my photos of them will be treasured too. Here are just a few.
A lot of animals were not photogenic as they persisted in presenting their backside to the camera. This treasure was worth waiting for.

Up in a tree there was what look like a discarded fur.
Until it turned to face me.
Despite its stripes there is not much chance of it being confused with another treasure.

Talking of stripes these animals had them in abundance.

This fellow however wanted her to go inside. Who would argue with that horn.

But watching everyone quite closely is a treasure said to have been rescued from a junk yard in Detroit.
|Lioness in charge|
She gets my vote every time.
To search for other treasures you need to find your way to Carmi's thematic-photographic-260.
