'Here's looking at you'

April 22nd: Earth.

Earth is such an amazing place with vast amounts of life in all forms, shapes and sizes. It's easy to forget that everywhere around you at any one time - life is continuously evolving.
I love nature to the core, always have and always will - can't tolerate any sort of neglect, be it a pet or wildlife and although sadly it will always continue, it makes me happy to think that others are there for support and help whenever needed.

Taken at West Midland Safari Park last Thursday and a very inquisitive Penguin following my every move in front of his tank!
Haha brilliant shot! fav
