    • And if you met him and his friends, you would love them even more. If you sit quietly and are patient, these little foxes become curious about you, and approach more closely to check you out. So delightful დ


  1. I love seeing these closeups, Cindy, though I can do without the monkeys and apes, ha! Just not my favorites, but that giraffe, fox, eagle, and ostrich are stunning — and look very happy that someone wanted their portraits!

  2. Hi Cindy,

    I find it impossible not to wonder what animals are thinking when I see portraits like these. And the critters in your pics do seem to be thinking, especially the vervet monkey at the top.

  4. I’ve never actually looked closely at animal faces like this and the shape of eyes and whether they are close together or far apart at either side of the head, Or the colours, the ape’s eyes are blue and I like the yellow surrounds of the eagles eye. Fascinating. Magnificent photos as always Cindy, Happy New Year to you for 2021.
