This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Animal."
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated."- Mahatma Gandhi
Everytime I read this quote from Gandhi, I can't help but get a little bummed. Let's just say that there is MUCH room for improvement here in the USA.
Being a passionate animal lover made this theme hard for me since I've got so many photos...hundreds of my own cats and then lots of animals I've met elsewhere. I decided to go with a few I took recently at the Museum of Life and Science.
This is Christopher, a Barred Owl. Many of the animals at the Museum have handicaps or other issues that make it impossible for them to live in the wild. Christopher is blind in one eye. I love owls and think Christopher has such a soulful face.
This is Max the steer, a friendly guy who seems to enjoy people visiting and talking to him.
I love the underbite smile this sheep has! She was very interested in having her photo taken.
Thanks for visiting! You can find more photohunters and see a list of upcoming themes on Gattina's website here.
