The elephant sculpture....

I found this beautiful sculpture at the entrance of the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk.  You can go here to take a look at their website.  I have several photos from my visit a couple of weekends ago and will share them all eventually.

and my personal favorite

  7. I'll definitely have to use that quote about memory like an elephant. Isn't it a nice touch that they added the butterfly, perched at the point of the pachyderm's proboscis?

    ...Oops; sorry 'bout that. (wiping screen with tissue)
