I am dedicating this post to One, or to be more precise, 001 (as I have decided to call my Mission Chief by that name). However, to make up for the scarcity of critters in this post, I include the critters I have managed to capture with my trusty camera on my trip to a destination where there were photo opportunities to shoot a variety of animals... New Zealand. .
Here is a delightful deer fawning for attention, waiting for the camera to focus on her.
A celebrity llama looking a little irritated that the paparazzi is not giving him any privacy in his own enclosure.
A lion (yes a lion in New Zealand), not giving me the time of day...but my camera caught this disdainful expression which seems to say, "Why can't you just let me have my nap in peace!?"
And you can't be in New Zealand and not get a shot of sheep in their paddock, can you? These black-faced sheep were actually hard to find...I finally saw a few in the east coast of South Island.They do not appear to be particularly bothered about being photographed...but that's because they were not aware that I was taking a photograph of them from afar, or they would have shown their back to me as they were wont to do each time I got too near. Come to think of it, that would also be iconic... the black bottom of the black-faced sheep.
born to be king
the lion's heart quietens
captivity in dignity
