She was not a big fan of this spider. Nope, not at all. Ugly Fish I’m not sure what kind of fish this is. My daughter called it “the bad one. Remember?

ButterflyA pretty butterfly spreading her wings.FlamingoA flamingo and a family of frogs.Dandy LionsDandy lions aka “wish flowers” as yelled by the woman standing behind me.

As you can see in the background, the sky was pretty dark and rain was imminent.  The rain managed to wait until well after the parade was over to start to fall.  And even though it was windy and cold, a good time was to be had by all.  Another successful Procession of the Species if you ask me!
