Looking into their souls

A busy week lies ahead, finishing my secret new range and getting ready for a week away back home in England next week. So whilst I'm rushing around I thought you would enjoy these photos I took yesterday at Antwerp Zoo. Looking into the eyes of these animals is always something very special, like you are looking into their souls. There is a year old baby elephant there which was just adorable. More from me soon, but for now, meet these gorgeous friends -

Baby elephants just tug at my heartstrings! ;o) I'm not much for zoos in general though... just don't like to see creatures in captivity, I suppose. But fun to see these wild beauties! Happy Days are you get ready for your trip and all sorts! ((HUGS))

Animals are just so incredible aren't they? Lovely shots, do you use a zoom lens to be able to capture that close? The giraffe is super spunky!
