Hello everyone.
I hope you're all ok?
I apologise again for not being around for ages, but as usual I've been working around the clock...... think I've gone into auto pilot!
Sorry for not leaving many comments and just clicking. Hopefully next month, I'll have more time to spend on EPZ.
Anyway...... here's my Jaguar image. I have waited forty five years to see this spectacular creature. Finally, I got my wish thanks to Martin, who took me to Chester Zoo on Sunday. I was like a kid in a sweet shop and ended up taking 350 shot in the time we were there. Six hours of complete joy to be in the company of all these wonderful animals - especially the Jaguar.
It was an emotional moment for me and ended up crying....... soft as putty eh?

Hope you like the image.
Thanks for all your clicks and votes on my previous images.

Kind regards

Bev Smile
