Your a bit unlucky then Suzie. I managed to not only get incredibly close to two ducks while walking in Edinburgh's Botanic Gardens a year ago and managed to change my lens from the Film SLR to my Digital SLR and they didn't flinch. Got some good close up shots.

I had a few snapshots that captured the moment a bit better, but technically speaking I figured as this was a "photography" competition that this was technically superior.

They are camels, big ones, I have to say. They have them along with some other wild animals in a big park near my town.

They took us on a "wild tour" and gave us some cups with food (the red thing my wife has in her hand), so we can feed them, but they are so hungry that they almost rip the cup of your hand. She was so scared that she threw the cup on the poor camel's face *lol

Those camels really do look big. Just their head is about half the size of your wife. I don't blame her for standing up scared, they were probably going to have her for dinner after whatever was in that red cup :lol:

What she was saying, precisely, along with something like: "In your dreams I'll go on that tour again!" :lol:

Wonderful marigolds! I had several like that in years gone by! For those that don't consider that outdoor fun, you've never gardened! Very nice.
