A Trip to the Zoo

We took the munchkins to our local zoo this weekend. I have been to this zoo many times in my life, but this was my first trip with a telephoto lens. I have mentioned many times before that there is something about looking through a lens that makes me notice details I have never seen before, and this was especially true today at the zoo. I tried to focus on the texture of the fur and skin of the animals…

The weathered skin of this rhino makes him look old and wise….
