Love is love, who ever you are.

The shapes they create are just beautiful.

For me this is the only way animals should be.

Free.

No Cages, no Zoos, no Sea parks, just NO !

I don’t really know how they are still going?

Wildlife sanctuaries, yes great. Help them, heal them, yes that’s fantastic, I am completely on board.

But to keep them in cages, or even as exotic pets, locked up, swimming or pacing around the same small enclosure for life ? Unable to fly away, just used for our occasional viewing pleasure?

That’s not right.

Just no, it feels wrong.

No dolphin or whale should be captured and kept, no bird caged or grounded for our amusement, or in our names. Not in mine, please anyway.

What are we victorians? Haven’t we moved on by now?

For anyone who has had the absolute honour of seeing these kind of animals in nature, where they should be, knows that they are not the same animals that you see in captivity. With their eyes so wild, bright and alive. It is absolutely thrilling and a blessing.

I can barely bring myself to look at their caged brothers and sisters, already devoid of life, hope and vitality, with a sense that they are already dead and broken inside.

But in the wild…

It is one of the greatest joys of life. To see them there is an experience you never forget and which has changed me for the better every time.

I once had the luck and privilege to have a whole herd of these gorgeous giraffes, in whole families running along with us for maybe half an hour.

For some reason I had not ever pictured them in big groups or even running weirdly. ?

All I can say is, It was utterly incredible.

Happy, living, doing their thing, free and really alive.

As they should be.

You can really see where the Angry Birds came from.

One would have to have quite an imagination to be able to create such characters. Something nature does with ease.

Silent Sunday- ish. A great one to work or even meditate to. X

Mmmmmmmmmm that’s all I have to say about this….

Bird of Prey Beauty. X

Just look at these absolutely incredible birds. With something very handsome but rather tough and intimidating about them too, don’t you think?

Some birds are stunning to look at, some cute, but these do look like a hard muscley, flying, killing machines. The equivalent of the commando or special forces of birds world.

I can only imagine what it must be like to be their prey. To suddenly see any of these gods of the air flying at you or chasing you, would be truly terrifying.

I can’t get over the variety either, I had no idea. Though realistically why would this be any different from any other species. Natures is infinitely boundless and beautiful in its variety in all species.

Wonderful isn’t it….

Today I am grateful for this. X

Silent Sunday, so just this today. I do love dogs so much, just look at these little faces. They are too much. XxX

They look like there are on a big night out, lol
Puppy power to soften the heart.
Big enough mate?
This is a smiling dog right? Not just me who sees it.
Noooo ! Did that tongue just get tired?
Ha ha ha his face.
Sooo so nervous poor little thing. X
That smile kills me.
Almost Kangaroo!
Comfy?
They know.
