Goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo

Camera Totin’ Tuesday met at the Sacramento Zoo last month, and right away we each decided to become members. Now I can visit often and get to know the animals.

The morning is the best time to capture active big cats.

Zebras are found next to the giraffes.

Chimpanzees always look like they have much on their mind.

Once before I captured a flamingo in this pose. It is printed and hanging in my room.

I expect that I will get well aquainted with the Sacramento Zoo, understand the nature of the animals and get better photographs.  See you soon.
