A sizeable owl at Paignton Zoo.
Capybaras are big and cute. Problem is, capybaras just look like big guinea pigs. So how can you tell if this is a capybara with a baby capybara, or if they just put a perfectly normal guinea pig in there to fool us. I can’t tell.

A pano of a cafe in an Airstream trailer, at the Exeter Christmas Market. The main background is stitched together in PanoEdit, then fed to DoubleTake along with a few of the images processed individually.
