Bonjour Serge,
Un animal fascinant le tapir. Même si on pense que c'est une erreur du créateur ;-). Peut-être parce qu'il ne ressemble à rien ou à tout en même temps, il nous intéresse. Une image simple et joliement présentée de l'animal dans un pré vert. Je n'ai jamais vu une espèce bicolore comme sur ton image.
Belle journée

Hello Serge,
Very interesting capture of a wonderful animal.
Nice colors, details and perfect exposure as usual.
Exceptional clarity and sharpness.
I love this perfect POV.
Thanks for sharing!

hi Serge,
Thanx for the note, that was very interesting. Very nice image of this strange looking animal, it is hard to interprete the look on his face! Good contrast with the background.
