Camera Critters

I ran out of animal photos so I found a couple of old ones and have reposted them.  I took shots of this beauty on vacation a couple of years ago when we visited the local zoo.  I felt so fortunate to get them.  He was  moving pretty fast.




Thank you Misty for hosting Camera Critters.

I patted a cheetah at our local zoo. Amazing. And their purrs are very special indeed. Thanks for reminding me.

I have always been fascinated by wildlife in the wild. I feel like crying when I see elephants chained to stakes and lions and tigers behind bars.

He's a beautiful critter, and I'll bet he was hard to photograph. Nice captures, Denise.

Great cheetah photos. I went to Phoenix Zoo recently on my vacation but their cheetah family was hidden from view! It was a disappointment.

Hi! Haven't visited your blog in awhile. I just posted an animal pic for Marie's Community Photo Challenge on my photoblog. It was fun looking at your Cheetah photos. I love taking photos of zoo animals. My last trip to the zoo I inadvertantly lost my photo card before I could download the pics...lol. Your entry reminded me it's something I need t do again soon..go to the zoo and take pics..not lose them...ha, ha. Take care and smiles! Maria
