More photos from Melbourne Zoo

Inside the Butterfly house there lives a bird....

Spot the Fake!

Can you spot the fake? The Melbourne Zoo has dotted around the zoo sculptures (or perhaps they're real, stuffed and glazed - who knows?) of reptiles and animals in their natural habitats. It was a little disconcerting to come across a snake within striking reach until I realised it wasn't real. Others were equally fooled and all around the zoo I would hear people say 'is that real or is it fake?' if the animal, bird or reptile wasn't moving. In fact we watched a Brolga settle into its nest to rest and then a mother and son arrived shortly thereafter and she was telling her son it wasn't real - until we informed her otherwise. It really wasn't that easy to tell. Can you spot the fake(s) below?

New photos

I've been remiss in posting new photos but life has been busy. A daughter got married and we had guests in the home for awhile. Then I had 3 AGMs for clients and have another one coming up next week. We've had people coming and going and just a generally busy time - but I know it will slow down again soon, once Christmas is upon us - it's not far away now, is it? And to think this time last year I was still coming to grips with what blogging was about. Now I own lots of blogs, lol!

Last weekend one of our daughters was home and a friend of hers from Germany also came to visit so we took her to the Melbourne Zoo.
