Wordless Wednesday photo: 81

Each week on Wordless Wednesday, bloggers around the world post a photo they’ve taken that tells a story. If my photo brings to mind a memory or inspires your creative writing, I hope you’ll share a comment below.

  1. Can this be a sloth being in fact TOTALLY slothful? What a great shot! By the way Allison (speaking of Costa Rica where you are doing that enticing writer’s retreat in a little while) we once were halted for almost 20 minutes waiting on a narrow road while a sloth s-l-o-w-l-y crossed in front of our car.

  2. Oh my goodness, on second look I see it’s TWO sloths (have I got the species right) having a wonderful slothful cuddle.

  3. Cheryl says:

    Such a misleading name for such cute, cuddly (sleepy) critters. Great shot, Allyson … love how you zoomed in on their faces, perfectly framed by the tree limbs.

    Haha! First impression? I mean, without ANY thought? Break time for extras on Planet of the Sloths. Seriously. (:

    Second impression? What a golden shot. I mean they couldn’t have posed better. And I can practically take the ticks out their fur it looks so real and clear and I can just about feel it. And the way the greenery (aka lunch?) is but a blur in the background. And the light beyond? Well, that’s the real world, for the unfortunate non-sloths among us.

    Where do you go to get a picture like this??? I’ve heard of a raccoon problem in Toronto, but this is a whole new kettle of fish.
