Horny Old Goat

Don’t be fooled by the title: it’s not a selfie.

What it is, though, is a mountain goat – I’m afraid I can’t remember the particular species – spotted at Al Ain Zoo in the United Arab Emirates.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Heat

After last week’s rain, this time it’s images of ‘heat’ that Frank is seeking for his Tuesday Photo Challenge at Dutch Goes The Photo!.

There’s no shortage of – often intense – heat in the Arabian desert, even in the oasis city of Al Ain. That goes equally for the world-famous zoo as well. And what sensible pair of lions wouldn’t seek some shade to protect themselves from that heat?

Aaaww, meerkats

Who doesn’t love a meerkat? This photograph was taken at Al Ain Zoo a few years ago. I particularly like the quizzical expression of the one on the left.
