I loves me some kitty feet.
But for a pane of (hopefully very heavy-duty) glass, I could have rested my head on this guy’s back. He was pressed up against the viewing wall enjoying something – the coolness of the glass, the idolatry of passing children, his moment in the paparazzi sun….
This, unless I misremember, is an ibex. That’s a bit like an iPod, only pointier, and less portable.
You better settle in for a whole ton of zoo pictures, because that’s what you’re getting for the next while. Yesterday brought us a zebra; how about a nice bobcat today?
I actually met someone once with a “domesticated” bobcat, and it sat on my shoulders. Surprisingly heavy little buggers. Nice big solid feet.
Our zoo may not be very big, but you don’t need a telephoto lens to get pictures like this one. I think I could have reached out and pet his ears, if I’d dared…
Stole R’s camera so that I could get this picture off of it for today’s Daily JPG:
That’s my sister and me, holding the smallest of the bear cubs from Yellowstone Bear World. We’re also sporting some mad Threadless duds. 🙂
We all went up to Table Rock yesterday afternoon to look down on the city and take in the particular brand of Boisean graffiti. One of my favorites is pictured, all panorama-style, below. Definitely click to embiggen.
Ryan and I came across this interesting vehicle the other day. If you were to zoom out of this image, you’d see a pickup with a handcrafted wooden “camper shell,” upon which the appealing (and, dare I say, exclusive to the American West) automotive ornament was affixed.
Of course, my initial reaction was “only in Idaho.” Upon further investigation, however, we discovered that the vehicle had Alaska license plates. So there you have it – proof that there are weirder people than my neighbors! 🙂
I’ve heard of brown-nosers, but not blue-nosers! Well, Aaron, that’s what you get for engaging in an egg-dye fight…
Today we drove to Nampa and waited in line for two hours for the chance to see and hold little baby bear cubs from Yellowstone Bear World. It was really pretty darn special. I’ve always had a very soft spot for bears, and to actually hold a cub – wow. I don’t have any pictures of myself just yet (need to pilfer other peoples’ cameras) but in the meantime, I’ll share this rather-cute photo of a boy and his grandmother catching a glimpse of a cub as it was being traded out after a long half hour of cuddling and posing.
Incidentally, I’ve found the place where I’d like to get a summer job. 🙂
