Photo Hunters - Wild



What a fun theme for this week's Photo Hunters. We're looking for a picture of something WILD! So many possibilities. I've already been perusing the entries and there are some really interesting takes on the theme. My post is two-fold.

Photo Hunt - Wild



Here is a lioness that we saw last August at the "Lion Zoo" in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We were pleased to view her from afar.


And here is the Ethiopian lioness that I was glad to bring home. And no! You can't have her.


More wild things..

Love the little lion!

As a fellow adoptive parent, I thought to write and tell you about the new guest home in Ethiopia specifically for adoptive parents and volunteer groups for the benefit of orphans in Ethiopia. Now that it is up and running, we would love to share the vision with other adoptive parents. You can see more at http://www.ethiopiaguesthome.com.

If you would like to post a link, send me an email at dave@ethiopiaguesthome.com and I’ll forward you the information.
