Love is.....

By ColleenA
Good morning....Happy Valentines DayGrinGrin
A big thank you to all of you for your votes and comments and to Peter (handlerstudio), Dave (Mistere).
Dave (Ugly), Richard (Rysiekjan) and Cathy (Holmewood) for their UA's for my elephant.
I would also like to thank Paul (Stub197) for his UA for my leopard in tree bringing the total to 11.

As its Valentines day, I was looking for a rose to upload and then found this very old image of the lion cubs fast asleep in each others arms and thought its too cute not to air. (snapped on a point and shoot) This is the same male that is now grown up and featured a few weeks ago. His two sisters have grown up and now have their own cubs. Version 3

V2 a pic of them as cubs with their mom......needs to be viewed in normal not large as there is 4 lions in the shot...

Have a great dayGrinGrin

Fabulous shots for Valentine's Day, Colleen!

When I was a teenager I sent a hundred red roses and drank champagne from a young lady's shoe on Valentine's Day.
Unfortunately she died of trench foot and greenfly.
