The Slow Food Movement

At Linton Zoo, yesterday morning.

Tugging at the heartstrings…

Rose keeps showing me YouTube videos from Vet Ranch. This is a Texas-based non-profit which gathers donations to provide veterinary treatment for animals who otherwise wouldn’t get it — typically to take them from rescue shelters and get them in a condition where they can be adopted.

The videos they post are generally wonderful before-and-after comparisons, and, I imagine, a very effective fund-raising tool! Nicely done.

MollyMoo is a cutie, for example:

And here’s another dramatic transformation in a small amount of time.

Before this morning, if you had shown me a picture of a kangaroo doing this, I’d have thought he was a stuffed one, probably taking part in an Australian beer commercial.

But it turned out this was just part of his morning stretching routine.

At Linton Zoo

Actually, I’m quite fierce!

I know I look small, but just get rid of this fence and I’ll show you…

At Linton Zoo this morning.

Full of the joys of autumn

It was beautiful at Holkham Beach today. Everyone was having fun…

Really wish I’d been the one in front of, instead of behind, the camera in some of these. I’ve never ridden in a place like this.

The Great Beyond

The Great Beyond

Tilly, captured on her afternoon walk by my iPhone 6. It’s a pretty good camera in the right conditions, given the size of the lens. Click to see more detail.

If this shot looks vaguely familiar, you might have seen this one a couple of years ago.

Mistress of all she surveys

Tilly at Wimpole Hall

Or so she believes, anyway…

Grabbiti?

Lovely cartoon by Mobii, who has since done several variations on the theme. I ‘liked’ this on Facebook recently, but wanted to save it in a place where I could find it again…
