NG Stock

I took this photo last year when we spent the day at an animal park just outside London.  I posted this, and a few other images, on the National Geographic website soon after.  Earlier this week, I received an email from them asking me to add it to their stock website.  It's a great feeling to get recognition from an organisation that I respect and admire - even if it's only for one image.  It's like a pat-on-the-back from a close relative.

I like National Geographic.  I don't tend to watch much of their channel, but I love their magazine.  I even managed to subscribe electronically earlier this year - which has been fantastic. Recently I saw their advert for their back-issues from 1888 to 2008.  When I mentioned it to my dear father, he kindly offered it to me as a gift. We'll be ordering it soon.
