WPC: Close-ooops

Close-ups. No macro, only Marco.

Of various bestie:

Of us, people, who from the nearest hill look like happy pest bathing:

Of an unknown woman in Miramare park, and maestro Tartini above his square in Piran:

Of me, La luna from Il giardino dei tarocchi by Niki de Saint Phalle, and bestia:

Of you. I see there is a pattern. All paths and posts lead to you.

Animal post

One of these days is the birthday of a great animal lover and a good friend who faces a change of pace and life. That’s why I’m sending little and not so little helpers to your aid. I hope you return one day to observe them in their natural habitat.

The first one is a mystery that will be disclosed in the end:

To stick with mammals, we’ve got a peculiarity, the Tuscan Tree Cat:

And here is something in between, a nutria, and the orange teeth are the real deal:

Here are a couple of couples, a mom and a daughter and my mom with a friend:

And here we can see who the model was for this Orvieto shop owner:

Here are the flamingos for which Orbetello lagoon is famous but we have not yet seen them closer than this:

Here is an encounter with a duck:

And here are some more flyers resting:

To conclude: your favourites.

And for the very end, your friend, happy to discover this beautiful river. (And yes, it is his tail higher up in the grass!)
