At the Zoo

I took this picture of a snow leopard while in Chicago. I knew it got cold there, but really... This picture turned out rather darker than I thought, but I rather like it.



There's also this wild dog I caught hanging out at the kopje. Again, it's not a straight-ahead shot, but I like the way it suggests doggishness. I'm a fan of African wild dogs ever since last winter, when I saw them piled up in a giant dogpile. I never really understood the origin of the term before then. It just looks so very cosy to see a big pack all piled together against the chill.



I also snapped a few monkey pictures that might turn into icons of one kind or another.

a question
would it be permissible to borrow the leopard picture - I like it - I do not remember if you remember Akodo Mizuno and his penchant for the Lion clan - but this is he.

Re: a question
It totally depends on what you need it for.

If you will use it for an icon, go ahead.

If it's for something else, drop me a line about it or post your email address and we can work something out. I'd prefer to pass along something higher-resolution, of course.

Re: a question
Sure - wouldn't mind a better-resolution version of the file. Please send it to tacomasquall@yahoo.com (most empty space in the box).

I adore painted dogs. Ever since Woodland Park Zoo opened an exhibit featuring them, I've made it a point to stop by and visit them. (Well, them and the jaquar in its gorgeous new enclosure.) They're PRETTY!

I love wild dogs -- wonderful animals.
