WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Close

The theme for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is “close” as in being near emotionally pr physically not as in “Close that door! You’re letting the heat out!” . If you grew up in Canada, or any other cold climate then you’ve probably heard that a few times.

Anyway. These are from the Saint Louis Zoo. Which since I named will cause every spammer out there to send me spam comments calling me “Louis”. The filters catch them but they’re always entertaining reading nevertheless.


Friendly flamingos.


Proximious penguins.


Happily hemmed in hippos.


Close Cuties.

  1. I had no idea that the last picture was of prairie dogs. I thought they were…well I just won’t say because you’ll laugh at me. Beth thought they were bunnies.

  2. Beautiful pictures again. 🙂
    A new twist on the “you’re letting the heat out” bit, my parents always said “close the door I’m not heating the garden”. 🙂

  3. Well, if you can post a picture of “close that door”, i would love to see it. It’s a nice interpretation you know.
    The flamingos is beautiful. I want to meet one with my own eyes.
