I visited the Cotswold Wildlife Park again today with my friend Sharon [webdzine.typepad.com]. Sharon broke her leg at the end of May and she was itching to get out with her camera again after so long being cooped up at home. She can only walk short distances at the moment with crutches so to get round this we borrowed one of the park??s wheelchairs which meant we were able to cover the whole site, even if we did both get rather tired arms pushing and wheeling it over grass and gravel. Photographically, we had the most success in the park??s walk through lemur enclosure. One of the keepers did warn us that the animals would be curious about the wheelchair and she wasn??t joking. One of the baby ring tailed lemurs thoroughly explored underneath it and one of the others gave the wheels a jolly good licking! They were obviously in an exploratory mood today as they were also fascinated by my lens hood and Sharon caught a priceless shot of one of the babies having a feel of it and leaving some tiny little pawprints behind!
