  1. Now that’s a unique take on the theme! That’s a fun shot.

  2. So many of your pics remind me of the stuffed animals that I used to help design in my old job. We sold a lot of sting rays… in a lot of fun, bright colors but never once thought of doing a black one with white spots. So very interesting. Which Zoo is this?

  3. You jumped in and painted them Polka Dots on Didn’t ya Now Fess Up!

  4. Very cool. I know how difficult it is to shoot through that glass!

  5. love how his eyes just seem to float along with him
