A special party for the Baboons!
Taken at Knowlsey Safari Park

Sorry again...but straight out of camera
And nothing to frame or maybe take out a blob or two
But hope that you like it.

Should this be Adults Only?

Still sunny here in Cornwall
And hope that you are all keeping warm.

Great shot Lillian... Hope you are enjoying Cornwall!

Fantastic. Did they clean up the wrapping paper( the baboons I.e.) or leave it lying around like many people do( particularly visitors to a McDonald's !!)
Cold here in Brentwood

You must have been delighted when this photographic opportunity presented itself, although I guess that is just part and parcel of being a tog! I'm surprised you did not wrap up a few awards for this one as it has great apeal Grin
