Encounter

#Fowc #Encounter #Rhino #Zoo

Armour Plated cousin of

Our dear old friend the horse

Lives off lots of green stuff

and fruits and berries of course!

With that great big horn on the end of his snout

you’d be careful when he starts running about

but he’s friendly to all who visit his lawn

and the keepers who look after his shiny white horn

Taking Five

#Relaxation #Elephant #Watering hole

Pampering after a long day in the

african sunshine

catching rainbows in their

homemade bubbles

younger members of the family

directing streams of water towards

either mum or dad

reaction – a rockabye in either trunk while in

muddier spots – hippo’s are happy in their holes

Pink Flamingo

#coloryourworld #cyw #pinkflamingo

long legged bird

wading in water

feet unseen

 

across America and Africa

you settle with your siblings

wonderous waterfowl

 

balanced like ballerinas

up on one leg

hidden in feathers – the other peg

 

paired in twos – for life (the news)

settled together in a homely nest

as mum and dad to two chicks – the best

 

and by the great big watering hole

pairs form groups – safety their goal

up in the sky – during flight – and at night
