A SIGH AND A SHIVER from me Pumbaa- Sigh, because it is so lovely to read your TR on a Saturday morning, while I wait for the washing machine cycle to finish. Beautiful birdies, that velvet monkey is stunning, as is the Rhino with the curved tail (any idea what could have got her excited like that?). Hammerkops are one of the most interesting birds to watch.
Black headed Oriole :thumbs_up:
Shiver, at that humongous Elephant with his flapping ears-just gives me the shivers! And not in a good mood either :big_eyes: Spoil my Saturday morning :tongue:

:popcorn: :popcorn:

Beautiful birds, and those Impies amongst the flowers are just gorgeous! :dance: :dance:

The little Vervet is so adorable! One can just give him a big hug! :D

Pumbaa, as ever your bird pictures are just marvelous. :thumbs_up: but your Impies in the flowers added an extra dimension.. the mark of the creative artist, doing the ordinary in an extra ordinary way. :clap: :clap: :clap:

:popcorn:
