    This weekend brought me a couple of unique photo ops, for sure. I wanted to try my hand at photographing goldfish, since I was “goldfish sitting”, and the goldfish I sat on (heh!) was actually gold. He’s a squirmy little sucker, and it took a while to figure out exposure settings. While I was scanning through the photos I managed to get that weren’t an orange blur, this one stuck out.

    I asked Chickeymonkey this morning how many fish are in the photo. She said “one” – and upon prodding, finally counted three. Did you see them all when you first looked?

    We spent our Labor Day at the zoo. It was SO hot, and the critters were really lazing around. The Giraffe’s seemed to be in their element, though, these three struck a pose for me that I couldn’t resist. The tallest did the splits and grabbed up a nice big chunk of grass, and the other two saw an opportunity for a free meal they didn’t have to work for so they stuck their necks out to eat off of the grasses that were trailing down into their reach.

    It was a three day weekend, for sure.

    How was yours?

    I saw the fish right away because I was expecting it I suppose. But I totally missed the giraffes until you pointed it out.
    Both are incredible shots!

    I used to have a membership to our zoo but gave it up when I realized that we could never get up early enough to see the animals active. The zoo opens up at 9am and by 10am the animals have all one to sleep because they’re too hot. I suppose it might be better in the winter, but I don’t like the cold enough to go. LOL!

    I love how you see things that others don’t even notice! I would have never associated the threesomes!
    I love the goldfish shot! Nice work!

    I saw the 3 giraffes, but not the goldfish. What I saw were three reflections of one fish…

    Really great shots! I missed the extra goldfish at first.
    I had a busy weekend. All I ever seem to do anymore is cook!

    I think you did a great job on the fish. They are rather difficult to catch with a camera as they’re usually so busy. All that fishbowl ADD action and such.

    The giraffes are cool, too.

    But let me be the first to say I was expecting a third photo in keeping with the triplicate theme. :rofl:

    Great photos, Leanne! It’s hard to get great photos of animals in action. Bravo! I missed the three fish at first also.
