You Capture - DOF

You Capture- Depth of Field

Last Sunday we went to the Buffalo Zoo.  As always I had fun taking photos.  Here are a few of the favorites I took while there.
Over by where we parked there was another lilac bush.  Of course Lily had to go over and check them out before we left.  I could not resist taking another photo.

Go on over to I Should Be Folding Laundry to see other You Capture's for this week.
