Started out early this morning and decided to go to The Zoo. Have not been here since my youngest was a baby so that's now been 27 years. Wow! Time flies! What a lovely job they had done with landscaping and homes for the animals. Here's a few of my favorites from today. I'm an amateur photographer. What fun subject matter!

The cost for touring the zoo is worth it. However, the train ride - which we were told we'd need to do if we wanted to see the rhinoceros, gorillas, and hippopotamus - was not worth the extra money. The hippopotamus never surfaced and the gorillas and rhinoceros can been seen from the boardwalk. It's upper level viewing gives a view and is handicap accessible. Also, for those with limited flexibility - bad knees, hips, I would not recommend the train ride. The kids seem to love it. ;)

Hello Linda,
Thank you for sharing your photos from the zoo. I think the flamingo shot is my favorite, but I cannot view all of the pictures for some reason. The rhinos made me think of John McCain and Paul Ryan :)
Time does fly. I have been to the zoo when my children were babies and now I am blessed to have been there with my grand babies also!

Thanks everyone! The "models" are a pretty amazing part of God's creation.

Gail Jean, it was really a tug on my heart to think of being there with my daughter when she was only 3 months old! Big brother was 4.

Awww ... I love your photos, Linda! The giraffe, flamingos and the peacock were my favorites ... but they are all great shots. Thanks so much for sharing them with the forum! :)

That's funny, Carl, but it took me a second! But, yes, you are right, imo! :lol:

My pleasure. The flamingos were amazing. The zoo planners have their habitat designed so well. I could have taken pictures there all day. Next the giraffes...their eyelashes are just beautiful! It's the details of God's handiwork - man cannot match it!
