    Thanks for all those links (I love Friday Finds on blogs); I’m definitely telling some people i know to check them out, especially the panther one,as I think these are topics that really interest them.

    I especially liked the last one, especially as I think I get too wrapped up in other things to pay as much attention to wildlife. Seeing those pictures just reminded me to remember I oughta step back and smell the roses. đŸ˜‰
