okay, animal angst--that ram on a rock between the hard places--thas' angst!

Happy MM!

TROLL Y2K said...

Great shots and a very imaginative take. Never would have thought of goat angst!

Happy Mute Monday!

You forgot to say "I'm UP!".

Aunty Belle,
Yep, that ram absolutely between a rock and a hard place... I would have some serious angst were I standing around in his hooves.

Troll,
How bout gator angst?

Buzz Kill said...

Never thought of animals feeling angst. And that one pic is a baptism like I've never seen before.
Happy MM!

moi said...

I wonder: is it the spider or the human in the first photo feeling angst :o)? Happy carefree Mute Monday!

fishy said...

Hey Buzz,
How's your Monday? I've known several animals well enough to know they absolutely do feel angst.
About that Greek baptism.... that tiny little hand gripping the side of the font?.... infant angst for sure!

Moi, I think it was ME feeling angst just looking at this photo! Hope your Monday will be angst free :-)

Good morning Fishy,

Neet group of shots. Parachuting animals would be enough to cause angst in anyone, how's that lama, flair that chute to land.

Boxer said...

I need a sedative! :-)

Clever direction and very, very angsty pictures. That spider is going to stay with me all day.

Happy MM!

That elephant sure does get around! I'm sure he is photoshopped, but still great pics nonetheless! The cat's head in the dog's mouth ... ANGST!

fishy said...

Karl,
I do feel much empathy for that Llama

Boxer,
Worse that the spider for me is the picture of that infant in the water without a protector visible in the shot. Some of those learn to swim infant programs definitely cause Angst!

Pam,
Yes the elephant is photoshopped, I first saw it as an illustration for an article entitled
" GOP Peril".
Even more than the picture of the kitty as a Lab toy? Is the tiny photograph of a yellow dog stuck in a tree trunk! If you can enlarge, there is a man and a chain saw cutting the tree down about 18" above the dogs body. Makes you wonder what that dog was after to make it worth all that angst? Happy Monday!

MinorityReport said...

These are great! I love the animal shots. My personal favorites are the German shepherd and the Lab with the cat. HMM.

stressful! especially the bulls trapped in fencing. hate that. animals in peril really push my angst buttons. the baby in the water reminds me of a terrible scene in "the joy luck club" i wish i had never seen. happy MM fishy!

ree said...

Holy cow! (hee)

Happy Mute Monday!

the spider on that dudes face makes me freak out just a little bit.

I didn't have a chance to play this week, but stopping by to say Happy MM.

Doom said...

Now this grouping IS funny. I think the cat one, the one in the dogs mouth, yeah, that's the ticket. Just another day in the sick room...

Then comes the mountain goat that didn't see the stop sign, the kid in the bathwater (been there done that, have pictures, my mom probably has a t-shirt), and the parachuting llama or alpaca or, whatzit are next, in that order.

The shepherd tasting the kitten is cute... as long as that was it.

I think you've got angst covered!

The picture of the spotted cow eating grass on the other side of the fence belongs to me; that is my picture, my copyright, and you didn't even ask my permission to use it. I wouldn't have minded allowing it, but I do mind your taking the liberty to do so without my permission. You speak of angst, but you cause angst in persons you rob!
