Circ, thanks for your compliment on my embroidery!

It can't be a coincidence that while they were in San Diego working out George's animal you were drinking from a Curious George mug!

I'd say keep your spirit animals to yourself. Trust that feeling inside. ;)

Great ideas team!
Here's another from the San Diego Zoo.
Crazy colourful flamboyant flamingo yoga. Perhaps something to strive for? Gotta be good for lowering cortisol.

My cortisol lowered at first gaze. Would love to see more pics.

I hope you're not asking me to do yoga sideways off a wall when upside down is clearly shown to lower cholesterol significantly more.

Do I hear a request for bird pictures? I just happen to have a couple from this afternoon when a hummingbird visited our plumbago.

Hummingbirds are so fleeting ... you have a fast eye and hand! Beautiful. Thank you.

Theresa, beautiful hummingbird pics! Mine pale in comparison. Do you have a special camera, or do you use your phone?

Thank-you Aysson. I don't use a phone, I use my DSLR (digital single lens reflex) Nikon and a long lens. It has autofocus, but I've found when taking bird pictures, the camera tends to focus on a branch or the feeder instead of the bird, so, as I did with these pictures, I often switch to manual focus, take lots of pictures and hope a few come out in focus, well lit, and well composed. Then I crop down to really accentuate the subject. I'm also pretty experienced at it, I've set up two hummingbird feeders and have lots of flowers which they feed on, so, at least over the warm months, I get plenty of opportunities which I take advantage of.
