Such a Wonderful Visit to the San Diego Zoo




We are so lucky to be close to the San Diego Zoo.  We haven't been members for awhile, so on President's Day we decided to join again and Jim, Cassidy, Brady and I headed off for the zoo.  The weather wasn't very nice, which is actually a big plus for a zoo trip.  The animals were much more active.  I was excited to see the tiger awake and alert, and in plain view.  He was pretty far away, but I zoomed the camera and when I came home and unloaded my photos onto my computer I felt so lucky to get this shot! I just love the zoo!

Oh, Marti! What fabulous photos -- you are indeed lucky to be living near one of the world's greatest zoos! Thanks for taking us there!

These really are terrific photos. When do you ever go to the zoo and all the animals are alert and front and center. Looks so fun!

I visited the San Diego Zoo many years ago. I too, love to see see the animals! It is so much fun. Thank you for visiting our Princess Tea Party at Take Six!! Hope you re having a super weekend.

The sight of the peacock and flamingo next to each other gave me a shock. Wonderful. I'd love to see an enclosure that had both these spectacular birds in it together.

Of course, it mightn't be the best thing from the zoo point of view, maybe they don't get along :)
