    Default Peanut: Jurassic Park series (continued)

    Once more we travel through lands inhabited by those terrifying yet beautiful predators of yesteryear -- the dragons of Earth's distance past. If we are fortunate, we will get to see one with our own eyes. If we are very fortunate, we will even live to tell the tale...

    There! In the distance! Do you see her?! She hunts -- moving with stealthy, deadly grace ... the dangerous beauty of the predator.







    She pauses ... has she caught the scent of prey in the wind? What does she see or hear that we do not?











    BY ALL THAT'S HOLY HAS SHE SEEN US!?!?!









    Quickly! We must hide. Be quiet ... don't even breathe. It is our only chance. If we are very lucky she won't find our hiding place!







    *Whew* Merciful heavens, that was close. From here, a safe distance away we can still see her with the aid of a telephoto lens .

    Hunting has not been good today in the Badlands. But still she will wait. This is her domain and woe to any who would dispute her claim.

    Thumbs up

    You have outdone yourself Pavel! The cutest Peanut post ever! Yes, she is fearsome; obviously believes her own press.

    In the first picture, that piece of wood to the right of the lair looks like an alligator head!

    Very funny! I liked that tale - although laughing makes me cough at the moment, so please don't make me laugh again!
