Wings

“Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.” Victor Hugo

Monkeys 1

“Man is the Reasoning Animal. Such is the claim. I think it is open to dispute. Indeed, my experiments have proven to me that he is the Unreasoning Animal… In truth, man is incurably foolish. Simple things which other animals easily learn, he is incapable of learning. Among my experiments was this. In an hour I taught a cat and a dog to be friends. I put them in a cage. In another hour I taught them to be friends with a rabbit. In the course of two days I was able to add a fox, a goose, a squirrel and some doves. Finally a monkey. They lived together in peace; even affectionately.” Mark Twain, Letters from the Earth: Uncensored Writings

Iguana

I couldn’t find a proper quote about iguanas, but I hope you enjoy the image. Iguanas can be intimidating. They stand still, kind of look at you and you just hope they don’t move at all. They can be quick. This one was very big, sometimes you can catch a glimpse of the whole family, but not the case as far as I remember since this image was taken 5 years ago (at The Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale, Fl.). I’m not really an adventurous person. I’m most of the time at home, and when I go out I try to take advantage of the places I visit or simply be creative with my surroundings ~
