Picture Perfect ~ Discovery



Time once again for PICTURE PERFECT. This week our host is Gary The Gator, who has chosen the theme of 'DISCOVERY'.

One of the greatest things in life, for me, is travel. And while it's sometimes nice to see old friends (in this respect I'm referring to places rather than people), the great thing about travel is visiting new places, discovering new wonders I've never seen before. And amongst the best things to discover in any place is the wildlife and (sometimes) even making friends with it.  Chipmunk 5

    1. Thanks Neil. I wouldn't go as far as to say 'tame'. Most of them would stay a safe distance away, just a couple of the bolder ones would could right up to us, but they certainly know tourists are good for a free snack!! LOL.
