Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shadow Shot Sunday

Stripey animals
Built to hide in dappled light
Lurk in shadow here

Taken at the Virginia Zoo, Nov 16, 2009.

Update:  H/T to Step-son Doug, for identifying these critters as Bongos.  I forgot.

Be sure to check the left side of the picture.  And the lower right.

Bobbie, we hardly knew ye.  RIP.

I like your stripey animals, they go well with your lovely shadows!

Wonderful shadows...and the animals who made them!

Strip-ed one with legs of brown,
Who made you look like a clown?
Your creator did, I think,
Have in mind a mincing mink
But he ended up instead
With a creature not quite red,
Whose redundant strip-ed hue
Looks an awful lot like you!

Hey Harriet said...

This is like a crazy wild overdose on shadows! Which makes me very happy. Awesome! Have a great week :)
