Impending baby has been a good excuse to stay at home for the bank holiday weekend and catch up on lots of odd jobs. One of those has been sorting photos from the past couple of weeks. My shots from the Marwell Zoo photo challenge two weeks ago are now on flickr. The ones I submitted for the competition were the giraffe with legs akimbo, the friendly penguins, and the ostrich. Given the number of photos to chose from I was pleased to get a vote for each and two for the giraffe putting it in joint third place. I have also published some more shots from another trip to Hillier Gardens last weekend. The rhododendrons were absolutely superb.
