Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo











I apologise for the number of photos. As you can see we went for a day out to the zoo. I have cut and whittled down from the over 200 photos that I took. We had such a great day out. This was my big ones birthday treat. He really wanted to go to a theme park, but as he has his arm in plaster again (he fell off his bike) we thought that was not a good idea. Also secretly me and hubby could think of nothing worse than spending the day at a theme park.

These were all taken at Whipsnade Zoo, which is such a great zoo. There just seems a lot of space for the animals. I probably should have spread these photos over more than one post.  

I know we are all used to these animals in books and television, but up close their diversity and beauty is amazing.

  3. They are fantastic photos - I love the flamingo. Haven't been to Whipsade since I was a child and we had a day out there - I remember it being a really good zoo, with happy-looking animals. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/LAe6cu

  8. What fun! The seal looks like he's giving a lecture! The flying birds don't look like they're in a zoo at all. Great photos!

    You've taken great close-ups, much better than what one usually sees in books or on television. Thanks for sharing them!
