I showed two local critters last week under the 'Summer' theme. Before I started today I had to check just what a critter was - a living creature I found out, a creature being an animal other than a human.That restricted me as I could not, I thought, consider birds and reptiles.
|Giraffe in a Yorkshire wildlife park (c1970)|
|Foal - Norway (1980s)|
He or she will be quite an age by now.
I wouldn't happy to be in the water with a beast like this.
|Hippo (Detroit Zoo 2006)|
I would however have been quite content to have a ride on these -
|Donkeys preparing for a days work (Whitby 2008)|
But they said I was too old!
|Lambs (Egglescliffe, March 2006)|
From the rear end of a donkey and that uncooperative lamb I'm left with a ewe that must be on Facebook.
|Ewe and its lamb (June 2014)|
But don't you just hate it when they show off they have been tagged.
|Tagged and shorn (not Shaun)|
