Big Purrs



It's time for a favorite Blog Land party:
We are to share 4 photos with you that have been previously published on our blogs
that we think would make good note cards.

You all know how I love the Houston Zoo.
Here are some my favorite BIG PURRS that I've shared with you before.

You've given "life" to these still shots...I can almost feel these animals breathing...

Betsy Adams said...

Absolutely --all four would make tremendous postcards.... Great post, Snap.
Hugs,

I agree they'd be perfect for note cards!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful photos! I'd buy those notecards.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Oh, I like these! Do you think you will make notecards out of them? I did that once through Shutterfly with a floral that I really liked.

Kati said...

Pretty, pretty photos! I love the one of the tiger. He looks so cat-like, washing his paw like that. And Jonathan the Lion is so beautiful! It looks like you want to just run your hands through his mane.

Do it! Make them up into note cards. I just found that Walgreen's (and I'm sure many others) does note cards for as low as $1.08 each. These would make tremendous gifts and they would also look wonderful framed in your home. Simply stunning...I'm going back to look again.

Oh goodness! Your selections are what I would call majestic. I love them.
That last one with the male and female is my favorite.

Snap...I love zoos, too. They were a big part of my growing up. And, now that you have stirred these memories, a post about my time in zoos is in the planning stage. :)

I love these beautiful photos...I would sure buy these note cards and probably frame them. :)

Oh I love the tiger!!!

Seriously, that zoo should hire you as their publicity photographer. Your photos are magnificent as always. It takes a special talent to photograph these guys. Each card is an amazing note card.

Maybe the gift shop at that zoo would love having them.

Back again ...
Cali and Johnny are my favorites, their looks are so meaningful.
As to the tall ship Elissa: I can imagine Mr Dragon was fascinated by her. What a tremendous pity one needs $3 million to get away the rot and what a pity one discovers such a thing. All things go by in this life, also tall ships.
Houston ... Texas ... I guess it is hot out there. It is hot out here, sweat streaming down my face and back trying to do some gardening. Thunderstorms now. We live so near the sea, the weather always changing.
Happy day!

Vickie said...

Hi there! Thanks for your visit - well, you did BIG cats and I did little cats. Wow, the tiger is my favorite, I think. These would make GREAT cards! How many people get to take such great close-ups of these big beasts!

I love the "Big Cats" Snap! I always visit them int he zoo when I make a visit. Your photos are wonderful!

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

Oh I love Pandu! Such amazing colors.

Pat said...

What a great job, I bet it was hard to get good photos with just the right pose, etc. I really like the tiger and that color of green water background. Thanks for sharing.
