On Good Friday this year, Danielle and I went to the zoo. After some traffic from hell (half the city of Pittsburgh evidently had the same idea as we had) and a catastrophe averted in the parking lot when I dropped my $500 zoom lens onto the concrete (thank goodness for filters!) we managed to get into the zoo. I hadn't been to the zoo in at least a decade, and I had a blast. Took a ton of pictures too, so I figure I'd post a few entries with some of my favorites.
There were two rhinos and I thought they were going to fight each other, but no such luck:
Another kitty! It was hot out, and they all seemed to be napping:
This one has been my desktop background for a few weeks now:
I am fairly impressed with how this one turned out, since I couldn't actually see over the fence I just stuck my camera up in the air and snapped a few pictures:
It's looking right at me!
Black bear with an itchy back:
This probably isn't the best picture I got of the elephants, but it's the best one I got with the baby elephant. Which was one of the cutest things. Ever.
I really like this picture, except for that annoying glare from the plexiglass we had to look through.
And one last polar bear pic!
Okay, that's enough for now. I will probably do another two entries of just pictures. I'm sure I could do one entry from the aquarium alone, plus another one for the monkeys and some other random pictures. Those ones will be up soon, and then some reviews are on the way!
