A VISIT TO THE ZOO

I took the kids to the zoo today and came away with some nice pictures, but these 3 are my favorites.  Yes, that is a prairie dog trying to pull a feather off of the peacock.  He successfully plucked 2 feathers while I was there and ate them!  It was actually helpful to me because it caused the peacock to spread his tail feathers to keep them out of the prairie dog's reach, thus giving me a wonderful photo op.

No, its not what you think, its a sleeping hippo's eye!

'Here, picture THIS, stupid human!'

The peacock picture is really beautiful! The ape giving you the bird, is PRICELESS! Great shots....your quit good with your cam. I love the pics, I have played around with my cam as well, I want to really learn to take some good photographs.  About the zoo, that is wonderful that you went out and did that. My hubby and I were going to do that this weekend too but had to postpone it for in 2 weeks. I can't wait to take the girls. Faith, my youngest has never been to the zoo before and she LOVES animals so I am looking forward to going. ::WINK::
