Today’s theme is ‘Sleep’

At a recent visit to Taronga Zoo, I was occasionally surprised to find an animal that was awake.

The Chimpanzees were all enjoying a rest, including new mother, Kuma, with her baby, born in October, Fumo.

Not to be outdone:

Small Fox

Fenec Fox,

Snoozetime Turtle

Tasmanian Devil

Asleep or dead

and a Tapir that looks almost dead.

It wasn’t a hot day, but it must have been a busy week.

Meerkats Meerkats!

Very few people would disagree with the idea that Meerkats are adorable. They are efficient little hunters of insects and spiders and very social creatures.

Whenever the Meerkats are digging about in search of food, one always keeps a watch-out for predators, whether snakes or other ground-dwelling threats, or eagles or hawks flying about looking for their meals.

When all the work is over, it’s time to chill out.

I think part of their appeal is the serious expression on their faces. At least, that how it looks to me. They could be laughing for all I know.

Ages of Komodo

A couple of photos showing stages in a Komodo Dragon’s life:

Komodo dragon baby

The young dragon is a lean, quick predator. But as the lizards grow they become the biggest and heaviest in the world, and prey on pigs and deer and are known also to eat people if they get the chance.

Komodo Dragon

They are named after the island of Komodo in Indonesia, though they can swim to other islands in the area.

There has been recent talk that they are also venomous. It was thought that the bacteria in their mouths were what slowed down prey after they had bitten them but new research suggests that there is actually a compound in their saliva which acts as a soporific. While their bite isn’t deadly, they can catch you up while you sleep it off.

All about the shapes

A black and white selection today from some photographs that I took last weekend.

 

I had walked through the city, behind the Art Gallery and into the Botanic Gardens realm.

Behind the Art Gallery

I’m only showing this selection for now because I’m still working through the collection of the day, but after I put these up a theme wasn’t difficult to discern: shapes.

And specifically, levels of comfort with these shapes. The first two, nice and smooth:

And the other two decidedly more spiky:

Old Dangers

I’ve uploaded these to RedBubble and you can see them there by clicking the pictures here.

Funny, as I sit and type I can smell the gardens all over again.

Well I’ve not been photographing much for a while. I put up some older pics on Red Bubble though, and these two were featured:

Actually went out last weekend taking a few photos not too far away in Sydney City. So I will be putting up what I like at a hopefully not too later date.
