Hey, can you pop down to the kitchen please, and get me a little more Ranch dressing?

Hiding in plain sight.

Who said "moo"?

Belatedly remembering Photography 101: "see what the camera sees".  
Ooops.  Did not see the gift packets left by Miss Moo ... or might have shot from a different angle! 

Today we are thankful for another wonderful visit to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park
in Washington, D.C., one of our favorite places!

Joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. 
Thankful for all God's creatures, great and small.



  1. oh yes... and some bbq sauce please ;O)

  2. We want to get those little critters and Mom wants to hug that cow! Cute pics even with the cow pie in the background.

  3. Bet that was fun to see all the animals. Have a super day Ann.

  4. That's too funny, love the request for ranch dressing MOL! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  5. You are thankful for all your critters you get to enjoy. I would enjoy them too.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. ♥

  6. OMD!What kind of squirrels are those??? Can I chase them? My Florida associate Miss Charlee sees lots of different lizards in her yard, even great, big iguanas! I never would have noticed the cow patties in Miss Moo's picture. BOL!

  7. Those are some very fun pics. Love the salad munching critters' one.

  9. Oh, what fun! What adorable friends you're making. Have a beautiful day!

  10. I loved the first 2 pics. The first, as I am a big tossed salad eater. The second as I have a knack for seeing hiding critters and bugs. But the last one really got me. I didn't see the "gift packets" until you pointed them out. We humans tend to focus on major central images. And what made me smile was how I can take a picture and everything looks good until I see the picture on the monitor. Dust bunnies, dirty spots on the floor, streaks on the appliances, etc... We focus on important aspects while scanning a room, but the camera gives us a still shot and shows everything... ~ TBT

  11. Are they gophers? Not chipmunks I reckon.
