When you pictured the first one, did you get the impression that the facial expression it was aiming for was 'If you don't get that camera out of my face, I will pluck out your fucking eye'!?
Brilliant, where abouts is that mate?
Great set - the birds are terrific in these places.
It's at Eynsford, beautiful area in Kent near Lullingstone Castle.. yes that first one was mean but had real character. it's speciality
is snakes and it has a very short tail because it's evasive maneuver is to walk backwards.. with a normal tail it would catch
on the ground.. more trivia LOL
Unfortunately the Cheetah was returned to Africa but the Meerkats, Huskies, Camel are are still there.
I went mainly for the birds of prey as they fascinate me.
The Falcon in the display was too fast to attempt a photo but it skimmed our heads as it swooped around the arena trying to catch the lure.
The Griffen Vulture shown in pics has a flying height of 36,000 feet! keep an eye out next time you are cruising at that height on a commercial airliner!
