Camera Critters #25 and View

I am killing two memes with one post this morning. :)The big cats are my favorite. At the zoos, they are rather elusive. I live in the south where it's always hot. Our cheetahs have a huge back 40 lot in which they live. They usually hang out in the way back behind some brush. Imagine my delight when we went to the zoo last week & saw the cheetahs up close & personal! I was giddy with pleasure!
Last Thursday, Big D & I found ourselves in downtown Houston. We were walking around when I noticed the view. I thought the building reflected in the building beside it was something fantastic. These buildings were lucky and only lost a few windows each. I wanted Big D to take a picture of MY reflection in the windows so I could look all skinny, but alas...

You're so funny!

I like the big cats, but they're pretty far down my list. Warthogs first, chimps, gorilla, warthogs again, then big cats.

Love the big cats, although I always have this fear of one of them actually eating up one of my young. (Now, that doesn't mean I don't sometimes fantasize about feeding my youngest to one of them.)

I love cats, all cats: the small ones and the big cats. They are so regal!

I love cats of any size. I have the smaller variety at home, but I love big cats too.

I love the picture of the buildings! What a cool reflection! Yeah, I could use a mirror like that at my house in the mornings!

Take care,
