Picture This #191 ~ My Favourite Things

Many thanks to Marianne for hosting this week, and for getting the song stuck in her head that gave her the inspiration for this week's theme 'My Favourite Things'. I have so many favourite things, I could quite easily have posted dozens of photos!! I tend to photograph my favourite things a lot, so you've all seen before many of those things: flowers, birds, insects, animals, sunsets, the awesome places of natural wonder I've visited. After a little thought, I decided on:

1) BIRDS. This Bar-Headed Goose seemed to be lost in thought when I photographed him.
Bar-Headed Goose

2) ANIMALS: My favourite and most-photographed animal....the Ring-Tailed Lemur.
Ring-Tailed Lemur 5

3) PEOPLE: My favourite person in the whole world, and the most important to me.......Joanne!!

  5. I just love that Lemur, he has such a wonderful expression on his face. I think the goose is watching something very interesting. Joanne - goes without saying.

    1. Thanks Pat. I love to photograph the Ring-Tailed Lemurs, they have such expressive faces, particularly their eyes. It's great having a wildlife park nearby where you can walk through their enclosure and get really close to them. That goose stood there for a long time just looking out over the water. I wonder if it was looking for it's mate?

  8. Thank you for letting me host, Mitch. I am so pleased you like the theme. I could also have literally posted thousands of photos. My children, my horses, wild life, Princess Mousie, my darling husband, but as I just happened to have some shots that fit the song, those are what came in.

    Love your goose, your lemur and of course the best one, darling Joanne. Hugs you both.
