Many thanks to Benni for hosting this week. A fun theme....literally!! LOL.  As soon as I saw the theme I thought of all the fun to be had in Florida, so all my shots are from my last visit there.

1) These 'rednecks' where having fun annoying the keeper (middle) at Gatorland.

2) These goofy gardeners were driving around Epcot, having lots of fun with the tourists.

3) What's more fun that being chased by a T.Rex at 'Islands Of Adventure'?

4) These 'extras' got more than they bargained for when they volunteered to take part in a WW2 scene at Hollywood Studios!!

Hi, this is Benni, here I am hosting from Michigan's spring. What a magnificent animal we have as our banner, well done Barry.
For a theme I have chosen "Fun and Play". You might choose people playing a game or just playing around.  Animals play as well and you might choose those. Or even light playing on the water. Feel free to be creative. Here are my pictures, hope you enjoy them.

Fun at the beach
A couple playing around at the beach.

Charming singer
I stopped at a stop light and this young lady was singing to the music. She posed for me before riding on.

Dogs at play

Have fun! I hope it's a warm spring day wherever you are. And one more note: I won't be able to comment on your pictures until morning my time and it will be afternoon your time. Also, others may  post later Saturday or even Sunday - be sure and pop back once or twice to check to see if anyone has posted so you can comment on their pix if you would be so kind. ❤️

Picture This #445 ~ Cows, Bulls, Cattle

Afternoon all, a bit late posting I was working in the garden all morning. 

OK an interesting theme unfortunately, I live in Sheep and Grain country not a lot of cattle around here. 

So I had to dig deep into the archives for this weeks shots the first two from before I moved down here, on a hike around Hartley Wintney when I lived for 35 years. 

The Second two from a trip around the New Forest also before I moved down here.

Many thank to Anders for hosting this week and for his bovine theme!! Had to do some digging in my archive this this one, including one that's a play on the name.

1) Contented cattle sunbathing.

Wonderful spring leaf by Mitch! I've not seen any of these yet, but I am hopeful.
Thanks to Anders for this bovine theme. I had to get a little creative because, although I live in a rural area, I have no pictures of cattle. But I do have these:
    Elsie the cow
In the town of Elsie, Michigan, there is this famous statue of Elsie the cow, although a quick glance will confirm that Elsie is a bull.

Dolphins
Male dolphins are called bulls and the females are called cows. This pair was photographed in Florida. Where it is warm.

Lizard extending dewlap
And, finally, I discovered that male reptiles are also called "bulls". As is "bullfrog". Here we have a male lizard displaying his dewlap. Apologies, I know you have all seen this picture before. But he is quite proud of himself.

PT CDXLIV ~ Spring

First of all - I sincerely apologise for my tardiness in posting the new theme. My mom isnt feeling very well and I had to go shopping for her. I fully intended to post my theme after I came back. I hope that Mitch do not feel that I'm untrustworthy and will not offer me a second chance at hosting. best Anders.

Grand banner by Barry and theme by you, Mitch.
