How Cute is This??

Might have to copy and paste if the link does not work....well worth the effort.

The Story:
BROTHERLY love is not only a human concept, as these two owlets proved to a surprised photographer.
With talons outstretched, a cheeky six-week-old burrowing owl swooped in and landed on the back of his distracted sibling.
In an uncharacteristic display of manly affection, the owl then tenderly nuzzled into his brother's cheek.
Wildlife photographer Rob Palmer, 57, captured the almost human display of affection while on the lookout for burrowing owl dens in Colorado.
Mr Palmer said there were six owlets in this brood and they would play together in the early morning.
Usually found in the dry, open areas of North and South America, these small, long-legged birds hunt for insects and small rodents during the day.

AND THIS ONE
After losing his parents, this 3 year old orangutan was so depressed he wouldn't eat and didn't respond to any medical treatments. The veterinarians thought he would surely die from sadness. The zoo keepers found an old sick dog on the grounds in the park at the zoo where the orangutan lived and took the dog to the animal treatment center. The dog arrived at the same time the orangutan was there being treated. The 2 lost souls met and have been inseparable ever since.

The orangutan found a new reason to live and each always tries his best to be a good companion to his new found friend. They are together 24 hours a day in all their activities.
They live in Northern California where swimming is their favorite past time, although Roscoe (the orangutan) is a little afraid of the water and needs his friend's help to swim.
Together they have discovered the joy and laughter in life and the value of friendship.
They have found more than a friendly shoulder to lean on.
Long Live Friendship!!!!!!!
I don't know......some say life is too short, others say it is too long, but I know that nothing that we do makes sense if we don't touch the hearts of others.......while it lasts!

File comment: A peck on the cheek .... A photographer has captured the tender moment an Owlet flies in and gives its sibling a 'kiss' on the cheek. Spotting the perfect moment to surprise his unwitting sibling, the six-week-old crafty creature swooped in and gave him a friendly peck on the cheek.



bah humbug ! :cheers
