Mixing things up a bit with a scene from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium (Ohio) taken a couple of years ago. In hot weather, one of the sections has a walk-through that passes under a water spray. As the wind blows, the mist is enough to cool you off without drenching you in the process. The backlighting comes from the bright sunshine at the time of day we were there. Chilly and foggy here today - have a great Tuesday, everyone!

    Wow, when I first saw this I though; “When did Jack and Monnie travel to a tropical rain forest?” Pretty darn cool photo and very imaginative. Have you ever been to the Wilds near Columbus?

THIS IS AMAZING and you never left OHIO to get it.
I know where I can find one of these misters in Florida but getting it w/o people and with the light ray?? HUGE QUESTION MARK.

Cat on A SAND DUNE , LMAO as thats one I have never heard before.
Life's a lot more FUN when you can LAUGH ABOUT IT .
