This week on Where’s my backpack: Ailsa presents us with yet another fabulous theme: animals.
My favourite all-time animal: The Cat. Meow!
I love all animals with the exception of cows, bulls, wild horses and goats. Yes, I said goats. Anything with antlers gets my blood boiling, maybe it’s all those ‘extreme adventure’ shows I’ve seen where the protagonist gets hooked and gored by a few raging horns. Nope, not for me. I like to steer clear of those big beasts.
I do love horses if there is a large barrier between us.
One afternoon late last September we headed into the mountains to search for wild mushrooms. I was surprised when we turned a little corner and found all these guys, staring straight at me. My husband walked on with confidence but my legs turned to jello and I couldn’t move but for this quick snap.
Sardinia – where the sheep herd themselves.
What is your favourite animal?
Don’t forget to caption the first photo in the comment section below. Looking forward to a few good laughs.
Awww so cute! I have a thing for cats! 🙂
I think they are the cutest animals in the world.

Of course it’s real zebra! Gave the two of us quite a chase …
Fave animal: cats, for sure.
I’m with Ailsa, I love the sheep shot, the look on the dog’s face is priceless… Jen
I love how all of these show animals relating to other animals! Wonderful selection!
Loved your photos, but, as a photographer, I especially loved the cows shot b/c the composition is perfect and the backlighting is lovely (good lighting can really make a photo). Quite a shot for a quick snap, as you call it 🙂
Thank you kindly.
I am not as creative as the other caption entries, so will simply say this is a great collection. The cattle all turned in unison is like a posed shot! ~ Kat
I’m pretty sure the cattle were wondering “Who’s dat crazy scared lady. I bet if we pose like ‘this’ she won’t notice a thing!” 🙂
Great photos, Jennifer. The lion is my favourite animal. 🙂
Lovely shots… 🙂
How about ‘we are not a-mew-sed’ 🙂
I love these Jennifer…as for the caption: “I said we;d spoon…not fork you idiot.”
HAHA! Jo, that’s my favourite so far! Teeheee.
I’m good for some things still…even it is the naughty stuff…
wow! that last shot is very cool!
and yes, cats are, and always will be, #1!!!
Love animals. Especially when I see them wild. Like when I go for walks in a local park near my house (Short Hills Provincial Park) and I see wild deer. Many people gather each evening, waiting to see the deer head for thier usual grazing pasture.
I’ll take some pics sometime, Jenny. And send them to you.
…Caption for the cat pic?
“Wake up! You’re snoring! Go to the other sofa.”
I would love to see your wild deer. Thanks for stopping by, I sure do miss you … a lot!
Oh darling…isn’t life so purrrrrrr-fect?
Caption: It’s called “spoons”. Now leave us alone!
LOL! Good one.
Love the photos. And the cat caption: “Not tonight honey, I have a headache”.
Love the horses and the sheeps herding themselves!! 🙂
I mean the “sheep” herding themselves!! And I call myself an English teacher!
Trust me it was a shock to me as well. I waited for the shepherd but he didn’t come. I saw him in town the following day and asked what’s up with your smart sheep and he told me that he opens the gate and they walk (with dogs) on their own for about 3miles to their afternoon feeding ground. Pretty awesome!
Wow, I guess those dogs can do the job of the shepherd! Good for them!
Great post Jennifer, I love the image of the horses, that black one certainly is a head above the rest! haha! G 🙂
Cat caption: Do you mind?
All i know about horses is “stay clear of both ends”
LOL! I like your caption. Suits them well.
I will skip the caption but that’s a lovely pose of the two cats. They looked like they didn’t want you there. LOL But I love the animal pictures.
Thanks beb1, they are an adorable couple. 🙂
