It’s Friday night and I had planned a bit of light entertainment here – perhaps a film? Unfortunately time does not stretch as we’d like it too – maybe next week. However, our garden did have a little unexpected activity tonight – in the shape of a guinea pig having an evening stroll.
My teenage daughter, you could guess she was hosting the reindeer slipper, got two guinea pigs for her birthday. Tonight one, Dora, was very interested in the daisies in our lawn. Usually she goes out into an enclosed run but, hey, I thought we could let her loose and see what she did? She was drawn to the edge of the grass for some reason – how did she know it was there? Well, that is a question I have absolutely no answer for.
I stood, ready to catch Dora if she strolled too far – she was picking up considerable speed. It was the camera or the pig – as a parent I felt I should choose the pig. My assistant cameraman was unfamiliar with my camera, hence the red eye, but got the shot I asked for as you can see above. However, we do have another shot of Dora as you can see below and she really is quite a cutie.
Have a fun weekend- whatever you do!
