Artzoobilee: Farm Gang

A closer look at...

This is the pig that introduced me to Alice.

No, seriously. The week she and her family were in town, we arranged to meet one day to walk the Arboretum. Due to heavy rains the night before, we decided on a dryer walk around the zoo instead. When I arrived at our meeting point, the Herpetarium, Alice wasn't there yet, but I noticed several of the Artzoobilee animals in the vicinity that were missing while there the month before.

So, I decided to take advantage of the time waiting for Alice by photographing a few animals. Got the frog, toad, and small giraffe and was photographing this colorful pig, when I caught sight of a woman vaguely fitting Alice's description walk by. I looked up just as she stopped and came back towards me, and sweet little Farm Gang here made the introductions.

Alice later told me it was the fact I was photographing the pig that made her think the person behind the camera was me. Hmm... Anyway, it's all the pig's fault. *grin*

Funny, at the time the only thing I noticed about him was that he was an artzoobilee thing.

Totally slipped my mind. I'm sure at the time I noted it, but immediately forgot. I was simply tickled to have found you that way.
