We visited the Safari Park (aka the WAP, the Wild Animal Park) last weekend with our out of town company. While there I got some pretty nice animal and plant pictures (I’m a photo omnivore). The feature picture above was a little pool in tiger country.

First up, a burrowing owl.

Next, our cousin in a pensive pose.

How about a yellowbill stork?

Or a cheetah with a menacing yawn.

Finally, Mr. Elephant throws on some sunscreen. Being environmentally conscious, he uses sunscreen that does NOT kill coral reefs. I can think of a lot of human sunbathers who would look better in this same application.

It was a good day for pictures, though it got pretty hot before we left. I’ve always loved the WAP and it didn’t disappoint on this July day.
