Animals Are Amazing!!

The  Law Of The Wild says kill ONLY when you are  hungry
Photographer  Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing  pictures on safari in Kenya's Masai Mara  in October last year, 
said he was astounded by what  he saw:

"These three brothers (cheetahs) have  been living together since they left their mother at  about 18 months old,' he said. 
'On the morning we  saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking  quickly but stopping sometimes to play  together. 
'At one point, they met a group of impala  who ran away. But one youngster was not quick  enough and the brothers caught it  easily'."

These  extraordinary scenes followed.

and  then they just walked away without hurting  him..........

Life is  short... forgive quickly,  love truly, laugh uncontrollably...and  never regret anything that made you  smile!

This is wonderful! If animals can get along, then we can too. Hope your Christmas season is everything you want it to be, Sylvia!

When you see animals tearing each other apart on tv and then see such touching photos like these, it gives hope that humans will learn to love each other too.

Love this, I hope the little critter doesn't think that the big cats are his friends.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
