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.
Happily hemmed in hippos.

I like all the shots. The hippos are my fave. 🙂
Thanks, I’ve never been that close to a hippo before, it was wonderful.
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.
Adorable! I am in love with the last photo. That is the cutest thing ever. 🙂
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”. 🙂
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.
Love the flamingos! I used to have some in my garden when I was a child. – rita
All of these “close” animal shots are fabulous! 🙂
