HAHA, she's lying down on back instead of sitting on her belly. She does look very relaxed :)

Lavender said...

Pawhealer She does seem content, doesnt she? I admire the patience she has! :)

Captain Tehehe She must have figured out by now that I just want to have a look - Mr Little Wattle Bird isnt so trusting of me! :)

Nutmeg Its all in the approach - very, very slow! LOL

Lavender said...
