Day 13 - What Chu Lookin' At?

 
Beautiful day here! Sun is shining. 70 degree weather. Best kind of day for a trip to the zoo. This cheery old fellow was lazily hanging out and didn't mind the cameras in his face and the fingers being pointed. Occasionally he would get up and turn his back to us as if he had enough, but then would humor us again by turning back around.

What anprecious expression--sore or wise weariness: "Seen it all, and nothing can suprise me."
PS I am wicked jealous of your weather...we're digging out from 1 1/2 feet of snow!)

Kristy Johnson said...

This dude does NOT look happy to me! LOVE the textures on his face that you captured, though!

Ohhh.... I am so jealous of your beautoiful weather. Your blog is nice, and your photos are wonderful! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Misty said...

jo - Yes, he is, but he's so ugly he's actually kind of cute. lol

gottaluvboyz and lsvejda - The shot through the glass was actually challenging as there was a pretty bad glare and people's reflections but after a lot of moving around this was the perfect spot.

Kristy - He was just bored looking. I can imagine having people laugh and point all day gets rather dull after the millionth person. :)

karren - our weather got up to the 80s today! Hope you will visit the blog often. :)
