August '09

A couple of firsts today: first time using my new Shootsac, a gift from my friends and former co-workers at Yelcot Telephone Co.; first 12 of 12 in Oklahoma, my new home state! If you've got a DSLR and more than one lens, you should definitely have a much more comfortable to carry than a regular camera bag (this has been an unsolicited and unpaid endorsement). Now, on to my day.

Breakfast on the back porch - 8:43 a.m.

On the way - 11:06 a.m.

To the zoo - 11:22 a.m.

Neat lion sculpture - 11:27 a.m.

Pretty butterfly - 11:36 a.m.

Paige and I thought maybe a frog lived in the pot with the water lily - 12:00 p.m.

Waxy Monkey Frog - 12:12 p.m.

Zoo train - 12:28 p.m.

Flowers, lots of flowers - 1:05 p.m.

Dumbest looking sheep I've ever seen, but the keeper said it's smart - 2:02 p.m.

Very odd-shaped Red Kangaroo - 2:15 p.m.

Stinky Caribbean Flamingos - 2:40 p.m.

It was a beautiful day at the zoo, and it was hard to limit myself to 12 pictures. I know I'll go back again....maybe on a 12 day. See you next month.

That kangaroo looks like it's seen better days. Hope you're enjoying OK!

Very nice, sister. Yep, flamingos are "stinky," but so pretty.

Hi Sunny, I'm pleased to see the move to Oaklahoma hasn't made your pictures any less fantastic.

We particularly like the butterfly, and the dopey sheep :D

Sunny, as always quite good. But.. may I say that the first with what look like bagels is excellent.

thank you

Peggy Estes said...

Dogeared said...

It looks a very happy sheep though! And I love the frog shot - awesome!

Rebecca said...

Thanks for sharing your day at the zoo! That kangaroo looks almost human the way it's laying in its arms like that LOL!! I enjoyed them all/1

Nice 12 Sunny. I was expecting to see a few more animals though. Love the butterfly. Hope you're settling okay.

I did put something in my freezer... sugar free pops. They're pretty good too.

I missed the bit where you mentioned the Shootsac. It's funny - I read the Blog of the lady who makes them (Jessica Claire)!

I am late, I know, very late indeed. our slow internet provider makes it difficult to watch pages full of photographs. are yours are GORGEOUS, really. I like the sheep that doesn't look like a sheep (our neighbor has sheep they look way different), I think it's a camel! your photos improved a lot over the last months!
