Unreal camera critters, folks, simply unreal


Photo by Kay Davies      

Photo by a kindly stranger   
As much as I love the small herd of deer who come to visit our yard and to eat the ornamental crabapples from our tree, I'm tired of pictures of them in the snow.  I did, however, enjoy seeing a metal deer statue in Moncton, New Brunswick, during my train trip across Canada last year. Someone offered to take a picture of me, my husband Dick, and a gorilla statue at the San Diego Zoo a few years ago. (A sign warns visitors the metal statue may be hot -- but we weren't there in summer.)

I wonder if that is a lifesize sculpture. Quite big. Good thing he is unreal!

Even those of us in the southern US, albeit the northern part of the southern US, are tired of snow this year. Great non-snowy photos! Glad y'all weren't visiting the San Diego Zoo in the summer. There's nothing worst than a hot gorilla.

Whoa! I almost thought they were real. Fun posing with them I am sure. :)

I think everyone is tired of snow and at least it is gone here now, although who knows for how long. Good to see some photos without it.
