Pumpkins

Happy Mosaic Monday!
We went to the Philadelphia Zoo on Saturday & visited our favorite Amur tigers. The siblings Changbai, Koosaka & Terney were born in May 2007 to Kira. They are huge now & absolutely beautiful!
The cats waited inside while a keeper brought out three big pumpkins. Kira, at first, joined in but then retreated to a shady tree & watched her big babies play. They chewed, rolled, clawed & carried the pumpkins. So much fun for the crowds of spectators!

Thanks for visiting today! Now, go to Mary's blog
to see the mosaic talents of many!

  1. Not what we expect from tigers is it? That is quite a jaw they have.

  24. Beautiful animals, and the power they have is amazing. I think you are definitley a very talented painter, I understand watercolor is one of the very hardest mediums to master. I would buy one of your paintings, are you marketing them yet?
