Hi all, thanks for my shot on the header. As I live on the Coast , my shots are all at the beach, where there are always people at play. Have a great day.

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.
A couple playing around at the beach.
I stopped at a stop light and this young lady was singing to the music. She posed for me before riding on.
Dogs playing at the beach.
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. ❤️

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.
HI EVERYONE FROM A 25C GERMANY THE HOT SPOT OF EUROPE LOL
ANDERS THANKS FOR BEING OUR HOST AND A GOOD THEME
UNFORTUNATLY I HAVE NONE OF THESE WHERE I LIVE
HOPE THESE SHOTS ARE OKAY.
OUR GOOD OLD MILKA COW.
THE END RESULT OF A GOOD COW.
IN THE PARK LITTLE BULLS.
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.
2) This cow looks like it has ink-spots on it's nose!!
3) Funny-looking cow?? It's a Cattle Egret!! LOL
4) This lot seemed to be saying "If we ignore him, perhaps he'll go away!!"
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:
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.
Male dolphins are called bulls and the females are called cows. This pair was photographed in Florida. Where it is warm.
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.

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.
