Project 64: Burnt Orange (A day at the zoo)

Does anyone else take too many pictures?  I mean, so so so many?  That you have no clue what you're going to do with, but you just love them?  Phew!  Thought I was alone.

This week's color was a breeze.  I went to the zoo with the boy and hubbs, and while I was randomly pointing my lens at all kinds of odds and ends, I managed to accidentally capture the color, Burnt Orange, before I even knew it was the color of the week!  I got home that day and was pleasantly surprised!
This will be my link up for the week.  It is nearly SOOC...I adjusted the levels ever so slightly.  I really like it just the way it is.

This neighboring flower was apparently the talk of the hive.

One of the cubs, almost all grown up.  I love how regal these beasts look!

You have to kind of squint to notice the Malayan Tiger sleeping up on his platform in the background.  These cute little birdies caught my eye...they seemed like the best of friends.

The latest edition of one of my photography magazines featured black and white edits of safari animals.  I cannot even describe how much more powerful images of these animals are without color.  This is my pitiful attempt at recreating that effect...I loved the curve of the giraffe's neck.

Okay, I'm a bird person, so of course I love this, but come on, this is beautiful, right?  Golly, may be one of my favorite all-time animal pics!

Does anyone else think that kangaroos look like a conglomeration of animals that got into that machine from The Fly?  Like a horse, rabbit, deer, gopher, and a whole bunch of leftover stuff?
