Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
There are a couple of other participants too:
Jackie K at WorkingThrough It
Gillie at The View fromHere
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm continuing with some photos from my visit to the Zoo.
This week, Monkeys.
not sure what monkey these two are,
I think Macaques.
she's coming out....
She didn't come right out and walk around, so we moved on.
I heard on the news last night that she is (or may be) pregnant again.
Her first two pregnancies haven't been successful, the previous baby being stillborn or dying soon after birth.
the golden gibbon and the young black one.
and the baby golden gibbon. That's her arm and leg wrapped around Mum. At the time of taking this photo Zoo staff were still unsure as to gender, a week later we learned the baby is a girl and a notice was in the newspaper asking for ideas for her name. The black gibbon is the older sibling, a brother.
Baby has a look around.
on the move again while baby holds on tight
Mum and brother are very protective of the baby.
a quiet cuddle moment
and a cuddle for the brother.
not sure what type of monkey this is, a lemur?
and another unknown monkey type.
I should have photographed the signs that told each type.
