Capy Shower

This is a photo of one of my favourite rodents -- a capybara -- taking a warm shower on a cold day in the Saitama children's zoo in Higashimatsuyama, near Tokyo. I love how his eyes are half-closed with the pleasure of the sensation. Poor thing! He's from South America (Venezuela and Colombia). He's not used to chilly temperatures!


  1. It's a beautiful photo. It alternates between mistiness and precision. I love it.
    That is a big rodent, I must say.

  2. That is actually a photo of me in the shower before venturing into one of the wonderful mornings we've had lately ;) I feel for the fellow capy.

  3. I love capybaras...they are ridiculously awesome!! What a cool photo!
