Header Competition # 14

The header theme this week by me and is "Exotic Animals". I was tired of all the ice and snow and wanted to show you something from the plains of South Africa. Mac,TomDarla and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. Go to the other sites to see their interpretation of this weeks theme. 


All the photos are from "The Wilds" in Ohio.The Grevy's Zebra fit the bill but I didn't use him. Are you starting to feel warmer? You can click on any to get a closer look.

How about a Giraffe looking out from the shade, good but not the one.


There were a pair of Common Eland on the side of the hill, no not them.


How about the Cheetah under the tree, really tempting.


Then it must be the pair of Cheetah in the shade, no not those ones either.

I finally chose the Southern White Rhino Family. I think this is exotic an animal as possible. Will this bring home the Gold to Ohio? We have to wait and see.

You would be hard pressed to find animals any more exotic than these!

Craver Vii said...

Exotic animals = exotic smells.

What a delightful change from the norm! The pictures are all excellent; I can see why you had a difficult time choosing the right one.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I think you picked the right one! I am too scatterbrained to keep up enough to vote, but maybe I will some time.

wenn said...

That north end of a south facing zebra is not a "header." Great pictures.

Tricia said...

The cheetah would definitely be tempting, but WoW! how could you pass up those rhinos! Yikes

Tricia said...

I checked out the others & in my opinion, yours wins... hands down!

Very nice post Fishing Guy, and a great header. Believe me, when I just opened your blog, I was about to comment that the header looks incredible without knowing that the first post is on that only :)

I'll check out Mac, Tom and Darla's blogs.
