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….


The beautiful, bright plumage of flamingos….



A beaver’s wet fur as he glides through the water….


This pelican’s graceful white feathers….


I had as much fun as the kids :)! Have a nice weekend!
