I decided on this photo for this week's Wednesday meme participation -just because. This is a small lake in the city limits at the end of a main street heading east out of the city and west into the city. As you head east, south east from the business district in this section of the town, and turning left to get on the Padre Island highway to go to the island and beaches, you would see this lake. It's a nice area. Loaded with willow trees, mesquite and wildflowers and grasses. There are several covered picnic and BBQ areas, along with a child's playground. Among the grasses and along the lake's banks you'd find geese, ducks, turtles and gulls. [Probably snakes too, if I dare look down in the deep crevices and trees...but, nope, nope, I'm not gonna. Not even for an opportune photo for my blog!!]

This morning, I added another page to my Photo Blog "Colors of the Wind". Again, all zoo shots. This one, an orangutan, saw me standing at the viewing box...she walked right up to the window and sat down. Putting her hand on the ledge. I was so amazed at the closeness, and the soft, tender-looking fingernails [she only had the one arm I might add]...I had to take a photo, even if the glass was dirty! With me, she got 'up close and personal'----I entitled this "Through the Looking Glass"....
