Not Eggzactly as Instructed for E Week

Kneeling elephant at Ming Tombs, China. Above, with Dick on its leg. Below, with a sigh of relief.

Kay with marble elephants in China. Above, at Ming Tombs. Below, near the Great Wall.

Above, blue-footed booby with egg.
Below, Nazca booby with two eggs.

Above, blue-footed booby again, getting excited about protecting the egg. Below, two pictures of the statue of Christopher Columbus (Cristóbal Colón) on the waterfront in Barcelona, Spain (España).

Found a site called 'ABC Wednesday' and as soon as I saw the picture of a Scrabble board, I knew that site was for me, but I overenthused (I do that a lot) and didn't post to it properly. Should have had an elephant picture because this week is 'E' week on ABC Wednesday.
So here are some Elephants, better late than never. And some Eggs. And a couple of pictures of the Columbus statue on the Barcelona waterfront in España and, if I haven't misunderstood something else, I still have some time to come up with the next letter in my ABCs.
You can also visit more sites (and sights) from around the world at My World Tuesday

Oh my goodness, Kay ~~~ you were not kidding, you have elephants... Wow, I'm so impressed. Those are huge. Love the eggs too... So glad you let me know so I could come back and visit.

Have a great day!

Excellent post! Those marble elephants are quite lovely. You certainly couldn't mistake the blue-footed booby, could you?
(I recognise the routine of avoiding the dog that's no longer there. We had an English Springer Spaniel when I was a child and he slept at the foot of the stairs. For months after he was gone we all took a long step at the bottom of the staircase.)

Wonderful photos from your travels. The elephants are cool and I just love the blue footed booby. I would love to see one for real someday.

Looks like a great first post for ABC Wednesday to me! I love the kneeling elephant statue - must be lifesize or more, but it's gorgeous!

And eggs and Espana too! Well done. :)

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

Love these photos, Kay. Elephants are some of my favorite animals on the planet and I like to see images of them everywhere. You might enjoy a cool video that can be linked to from my blog that shows a friendship between a live elephant and dog. :)

Oh, I love that video of the elephant and the dog, Penelope. I've watched it several times. I've never met a real elephant outside a zoo, but there was one young elephant at the San Diego Zoo who was completely enchanting, and very talented.
