.....leaving you with this zoo picture, feeding time for the elephants!

Thank you to Colleen for her User Award and to all for your votes and comments.

EDIT:-- We have had to change plans--we were to see a lawyer to settle some financial details, he will not see us until next wed. so we will not leave until MONday--- I will catch up with you now!

We will be visiting my husband's mother as she adopts to a new nursing home--will return after the weekend!

I love what I call 'view through' shots and this one is a cracker. Great colours, textures and detail.
