Spitting Madam

By Lillian  
This is Mia having a 'tantram'...a real not happy with you moment!
and I was in the enclosure with her...see V2 Andy took my photo...obviously!

Went and spent another day at World Heritage Foundation in Kent was only photography there for day
a long day and over 3000 photos lots to bin but lots to keep too...met up with lots of rare animals
Very hot and sunny day, so a small problem with watching ISO all day hand held
and full frame..nothing done but a tiny frame.

My thanks go to Robin, Malcolm and Jim for the User Awards on the Owl..
