You Capture: Nature

This week's challenge over at Beth's I Should Be Folding Laundry is Nature. Saturday, I was surrounded by it. Yes, I was in a zoo, but the great thing about the North Carolina Zoo is that it's almost like you're hiking through the woods. I clearly wasn't thinking when I posted my best shot here, but oh well. I think you'll like this anyway. And thanks to Christy for helping me with the idea and for helping me choose the third photo! So, friends, I give you You Capture: Nature.

Nature is pretty.


Nature can be tall.


Nature means patiently waiting.


And, boy does Nature call.

I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
