Rui Costa, wonderful Zooage photo..

I had to chase this one around the tree, in the rain, to get his photo..he had been chattering at me, all morning, but when I ran back to the house, he was delighted to play a game of peek a boo..

I won. But got soaked in the process..raining really hard, right now..I just love it.
