Getting Noticed


I love going to the zoo and so do my kids. Luckily we have a small zoo close to us that we go to multiple times a year. Usually when the weather first starts turning in the spring, I start getting antsy to go and this year was no different. Of course, I make sure I have my camera with me because I love taking pictures of the animals. Sure, it's the same animals every time we go, but you never know what they're going to be doing and this last trip was a great example.

We have a few peacocks at the zoo and I love sitting and watching them and hoping that they will display their beautiful feathers. This time, though, one was also being very vocal trying to get noticed by the peahens. I spent a while just sitting there watching him until I was finally able to get the picture I wanted and since this week's I Heart Faces challenge included Pets or animals, I knew I had to enter it. It also fits the challenge of funny or silly faces.

Now if I can just choose which human face I'd like to share. :)

About Me

My photo
I'm a SAHM that loves photography. My kids are my main models but they're on to me and have started running in the opposite direction of me and my camera. Well, all but the youngest. She's a ham. To compensate I take pictures of just about everything else from flowers and bugs, to landscapes and anything else that will sit still. And I share it all here because I might as well do something with it. :)
