Giraffe Family, Mother and Child

I'm entering this photograph in the Guardian newspaper's weekly In Pictures photography competition.
The topic this week is Family.
I snapped this tender moment between mother and child last week at Fota Wildlife Park.

Siamang Gibbons at fota wildlife park

Siamangs are the largest of the Gibbons.
Their natural habitat is high in the tree tops of the rainforest's of south east Asia.
But these two can be seen in Fota Wildlife Park along with the rest of the family.
A long way from home then, but at least the rain shouldn't bother them, if only we had the tropical heat to go with it!

Falling for a Zebra at Fota Wildlife park

Yes I fell head over heels for this little darling.
Who started out a little shy, but that didn't last long...

Oh you just want to take my picture, how about some action shots..

Here I go, watch me now...

Yahoo buckaroo

Pheeew.. that was exhausting, I think I'll have a nap now.

Garden Portraits

A few photographs from my garden that I mucked around with in photoshop.
Just having fun, but I really like the yellow against the blue.

This is the final one of three, you can scroll down to see the other two if you're bothered.
I think this is the best of the three but if anyone prefers the others I'd love to know.
All three are watercolours.

Blue Iris Watercolour

I just had to do another Illustration Friday for 'The Blues', that moody dude was really depressing me!
So I went back to my flower power, much prettier:)
The source of the inspiration for this watercolour came from here

Illustration Friday 'The Blues'

I don't know what his problem is, but he looks mighty blue to me.
Watercolour of some dude in a magazine.
