The response to yesterday's pictures from the zoo have been overwhelming.  I was ecstatic when the pics of Ninja and Alex attracted a few hundred lookers, but I never expected anything like this.  This is a look at my flickr stats page, showing just how many hits those pictures have gotten.  Over 14,000 yesterday, and as I type, it's closing in on 3,000 since 5:00pm PDT, 1 hour and 40 minutes ago.  The pics were reposted on blogs and websites all over the world.

I am not posting this to brag.  I am astonished, and humbled.  I am just really happy that so many people enjoyed my pictures.  So, thank you to every one who stopped by flickr to see them.

I also posted this pic because I didn't have too much I could take pictures with.  I took this pic, and my camera shut off right afterwards again.  I sadly might have to downgrade to my hubby's camera, or even my daughter's camera.  That will just provide me a challenge, to get great pics from very simple point and shoot.  That's looking at the bright side of the situation.
