Zoo Day

I went to the Zoo on Wednesday and OH, what a day I had there.  Billy dropped me off around 9am.  I was loaded....had both my lenses, my camera, my monopod, my umbrella, and water and a snack.  It was an overcast day, which made it nice temp wise.  It did sprinkle a couple of times, but I had my trusty umbrella so I was good.  I really took my time and got some great shots....around 500 photos.  By the time I left I was really tired....I think it was around 3pm when I decided to call it a day.  I certainly can't post all 500 photos, but here are a few of my favorites.
 I was actually shooting the flowers when this little guy magically appeared in my view cool is that!!
 Look at all those teeth!
It was around 3pm when I went back home and there was not a part of my body that didn't kinda of ache.  Just not used to all that walking....especially with a backpack.  It was so worth it though and I do plan to go back.  So much to learn about the camera.....keep in mind that all these shots, with the exception of the hummer, were taken either through glass or a cage.

Those are really beautiful pictures. That hummer showing up at just the right time was certainly serendipitous. Show us some more!!
