Furry and Feathered Friends

Took a little break today and went to one of my favorite places to take photos, the Santa Barbara Zoological Gardens. It is the nicest, small zoo I've ever been to. It is located on top of a hill with a fantastic view of the ocean. It has both wonderful animals and plants. I'm sure you can guess what this photo is of.
Here's a photo of a beautiful Lorikeet. They are the sweetest and most colorful birds I've ever seen. You can buy a little cup of nectar and they sit on your arm and have a drink.
I've have been spending a lot of time preparing for the Coastal Quilters Guild challenge, Lights!Camera!Action! We have received some wonderful entries and I'm looking forward to Thursday night to see which quilts get voted as the favorites.
A real director, Bill Dear, will be bringing props from some of his movies for us to view up close. It should be a fun filled evening. I'll post some photos after the event.
