Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh Yes!

After saving my pennies for awhile, I finally arranged a showing at Wild Eyes for my amateur photography. (For more information about Wild Eyes, click here.) If I were a professional and / or had more spare money, I would arrange the kind of showing the pros get, with the animals unfettered and in the open, with nothing between us. Of course, then I would probably forget to take pictures altogether in the ecstasy of being able to touch...

Nonetheless, it was a wonderful experience. Seeing these animals up close is the joy of a lifetime. I am not a proponent of making animals perform, but the animal welfare is what comes first at Wild Eyes. Those of us who pay for the privilege of sitting in their presence are a secondary concern, as we should be. The love between the animals and humans there is amazing. If anyone ever tries to tell you that animals can't feel affection and love, they're lying. If you have any doubts about it personally, arrange a visit to

Wild Eyes and see for yourself.

Ginger the Mountain Lion. I got the fewest photos of this beautiful girl, since she was apparently not feeling very sociable and went back to her home a little early. Maybe next time.
