Hangin' Around

I got some great shots of this little guy swinging and playing on his rope. At one point, he assumed this position and just sort of hung out... like it was the most natural and comfortable thing in the world!

I am drawing a blank on what this is called, but I'm pretty sure it's not "Hey Mom - look at this colorful Chinese duck thing!"  The colors are amazing though.

Todays color is... RED

As in... the Red Panda. Our weather has gotten gray and dreary again, so I'm going to focus on color for the next few entries. I loved the green of the trees contrasting with his red fur, not to mention that sweet little white face.
I was actually quite proud to spot him. The first thing I noticed in the enclosure was a sign telling visitors to look in the trees for this animal.

The Colors of Fall

We spent the weekend in Memphis and went to the Zoo on Saturday. The trees were so amazingly gorgeous and I couldn't wait to come home to post new pictures.

The good news... I have a lot of new pictures.
The bad news... I have tons of animal pictures again, but I got such good ones!

The Walkway

I use this walkway every day when I go to work. I took this on Thursday, when it was so horribly cold and rainy. I'm not really sure what I was going for, but I ended up liking the dull color with the other colored buildings. I'm hoping this weekend to take some bright, colorful pictures. This drab theme is getting.... well, drab!

I'm bringing Monkey back...

I know, I know... I've really been digging in the past files lately, because I haven't been taking many pictures. I have thought about posting this one for a while now, because I love the look on his face (click on the picture to view it in better detail).

And look at me - pretending I have an actual audience for my blog!

Things have been dreary around here, so I needed to brighten things up with a little color. This was taken at the LR Zoo.

The Log Cabin

No matter how many times I've been here, I always think it's just a little cool.

In the window, out the window

I thought this ended up looking kind of neat - I took it at Burns Park, standing outside of the log cabin, looking in one window and out the other. Confused yet?

Rain Rain Go Away

With all the rain we've had lately, I felt like we needed something pretty & sunny.  This bridge is by the covered bridge at Burns Park. I had never seen it, but then again, it had been a long time since I'd been that way. I love the sunlight, along with the lily pads in the water.

A Fungus Among Us

Sometimes it's the littlest things that catch my eye. On this day, I was fascinated by this log and the funk that was taking it over. Of course, I had to take a picture.

Lily Pads

It could be just me, but something about the contrast in the dull, muddy water and the bright, vibrant Lily pads appealed to me.  I almost expect to see a fish peeking up from the water.

My daughter liked this one best. She said the reflection of the covered bridge (see yesterday's photos) made it look like the Lily pads were swimming in paint.

Bridges of Madison County... or Pulaski County

Our mission this weekend was to help my daughter with her bug collection, which meant I got to get out and take a lot of pictures. Our first stop was the covered bridge in Burns Park. I used to be so afraid of this bridge. I'm not sure if it was The Legend of Sleepy Hollow association or something else, but now I think it is simply beautiful.

I love the reflection in this shot. It was a great location overall - we found several bugs here!
