Snapshot Saturday: Queens of Africa

I took this picture about a year ago right when Heart of Africa opened at the Columbus Zoo in Columbus, OH. The exhibit was brand new and the lions were still getting used to everything so they were very curious about everything going on on the other side of the glass. If you’re ever in…

The real Kings of the Jungle

I am currently reading a book about Dian Fossey called Woman in the Mists. I am not even a fourth of the way through it but reading it provoked some thoughts within me.

Everyone is always telling you to spread your wings and FLY

One of my adventures in Philadelphia took me to the Museum of Natural Sciences, which is a great museum by the way if you ever find yourself in Philly. Among all of the taxidermied animals (I prefer my animals alive), was a great butterfly exhibit! Now I respect and appreciate all of mother nature and…
