Travel theme: Animals

Ailsa challenged us to share some photos of animals this week in celebration of World Animal Day which was on 4th October; this date having been chosen because it coincides with the feast of St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. (We visited Assisi last month, see my post about it here).

Here are some of the animals I’ve met on my travels:


Being a cat lover I can never resist taking a shot of a cat when I come across one


tigers at the tiger temple in South West Thailand

not sure about the dress

an otter and its handler on Koh Samui, Thailand

a man and his monkey – the monkey climbs up the coconut palms, twists the nut off its stalk and throws it down to the ground. On a good day a man and his monkey will harvest a couple of hundred of coconuts much quicker than any human could



some of the other animals I’ve “met” on my travels

  1. Love all of these. 🙂

  2. Very interesting collection of animals

  3. Great gallery – including the dragon! Love teh first batch – isn’t it amazing how cats can sleep anywhere??

  4. I’m a cat lover, and I also have a thing for dragons. That last shot is especially beautiful.
