#MySundayPhoto, The great outdoors

My Sunday Photo – February 12th, 2017.


My poor camera has been neglected this week as, after much effort on her part, Freya finally infected me with her germs.

As a result, this week’s My Sunday Photo is from a recent trip to Banham Zoo. It was pretty cold but otherwise a clear day and we virtually had the place to ourselves. You might remember that last year I fell in love with a ring-tailed lemur (at the sister zoo, Africa Alive) but on this visit it was all about the red-ruffed lemur (I’m so fickle).

I also got to hold a millipede, which I was VERY excited about – probably more excited than Freya who took it in her stride.


So cute!
I hope you’ve had a happy (and healthy) week.

  1. Wow, fabulous close-up of the millipede! Sorry to hear you’ve picked up the germs! I’ve partially picked up my daughter’s too – I’m coughing, but not actually ill (although my husband keeps telling me I’m ill!).


  2. These are great photos. Great to have a zoo almost to yourselves. I hope you’re feeling better now? #mysundayphoto


  3. Hi Tara, I think there should be somewhere we could quarantine our sick children! I remember the photos you shared before of the lemur that stole your heart. They are such quirky looking creatures. I’m not sure I’d have got excited about holding a millipede, We do get quite large ones here, and I have never got that urge to pick them up with my bare hands. I do however love the detail in your photos, from the fur on the lemur’s ear to the legs and shell (?) of the millipede.



  4. That lemur is cute. You’re braver than I am with holding the millipede – just looking at it made me shudder! Jessica quite likes holding creepy-crawlies though. She loved getting to hold a millipede at an event last year 🙂
