Matilde the She Boar

leave a comment »

 

Came upon this beautiful she-boar the other day. Very friendly, and would have been friendlier had I offered her a snack – though I have a policy of not feeding other people’s animals without their consent. Though disappointed, she was happy to pose for photos and didn’t seem to mind that I struggled with getting such a magnificently enormous creature into the frame. I think we both agreed a head shot would be the right thing.

Love the long snout… bear-like, a bit dangerous. Lotta grunting. But really, a rather nice girl. If she had a name, I think it would be Matilde…Hog-4

Zoo-Apr13-128

Coupla squirrel monkeys playing in a palm tree. I suppose Peanut the Monkey might have been more tolerable if he could have played in the trees year-round. But half the year he was stuck indoors… I wonder if I would like him more today if I ran into him again.

Horse-y

 

Went to the KareKare Beach Races on Saturday – horse racing on the beach. A refreshing change from the usual street fair and I got to meet some interesting characters. Loved these two ponies…

Rather like this shot of the bumper cars from the other night.

Rides-4

Not quite as fond of this one, but strangely, quite a few people loved it – so I thought I’d share it here… see if anyone else likes it. Hmmm… sorry for sounding grumpy… just didn’t get what I was expecting. And like pretty much everyone in the world – I find it hard to be dazzled by Brussels when I was expecting Paris…
