do you see me now ?

honestly
I could have reached out and touched his head
as
he didn't have a care in the world that I was in his space taking photos
~~
he was hoping I had food
but
I didn't
~~
he was just hanging with his peeps
sitting in the shade of the trees
watching the world go by
~~
and
today
that's what I'm doing
too
*
I only had my telephoto lens with me
and
he literally was under my feet and I couldn't get away from him
hence
the green screen look in the back
which is just grass
*
note to self
a good photographer should always have the right lens with her
duh

  18. Somehow this reminds me of our animal drive-through safari adventure. I literally had a yak in the car with me. A big, drooling, black-tongued yak!! Hilarious. Gross!! You'd love the story.
